Repeal w/o Replace?

Problem

Millions may find themselves without affordable healthcare if Congres gets its way throughout The USA.

While most Americans were sleeping, US legislators took a first step dismantling President Barack Obama's health care law, responding to pressure to move quickly even as Republicans and President-elect Trump grapple with how to replace it.

After debating for hours through the wee hours of the night, US Senators voted towards a top goal of congressional Republicans and President-elect Donald Trump.

Our sworn representatives began voting on dozens of amendments before passing the budget measure. Republicans claim Obamacare is broken and must be repealed and replaced, although just what that replacement plan will look like has not yet been revealed. House leaders plan to do that later. This may be the time to contact your Senator and Congressional representative.

Healthcare... Says Nothing!

Trump has made no secret of the fact he thinks Obamacare, which offers help for 44 million Americans without health insurance, should be repealed.

He said he hopes to “repeal and replace” the entire Act within one day, but said it “could be the same hour”. And in its place, Trump said:

We’re gonna get a health bill passed, we’re gonna get healthcare taken care of in this country. We’re going to have a health care that is far less expensive and far better.

Will Republicans Replace?

Obamacare repeal is easy, but repeal by itself could create a human & political disaster http://brook.gs/2i7Jgoy

GOP AWAY

Negative views of Trump’s Republican transition, amid concerns about conflicts, tax returns
A new survey finds 55% of Americans disapprove of the job GOP President-elect Trump has done so far explaining his policies and plans for the future to the American people, while 39% approve.

Americans also are concerned about his potential business conflicts of interest and whether he will be too impulsive in making decisions. Six-in-ten say he has a responsibility to release his income taxes.
