Paul Ryan: ObamaCare repeal will have replacement

"A repeal of the healthcare law would put millions of jobs under attack".

The parts of the existing law that many don't like, like the insurance requirement, Schultz said, make the law work.

"I think it gets back to one of the basic questions as a nation, 'Is healthcare a privilege or a right?'" she said. Does it maintain the quality of coverage?

History suggests by taking this approach, the president-elect could wind up facing the same kind of political blowback that crippled the last two presidents who made health-care changes the centerpiece of their initial agendas: Obama and Bill Clinton.

After a clean sweep of Congress and the White House, Republicans will have no problem dismantling the 2010 law that they vehemently opposed from the outset.

"We can not allow Republicans to make America sick again by repealing the ACA without a replacement plan that will ensure millions of Americans are not kicked off of their insurance, seniors do not face cuts to their Medicare, women are not denied access to care because of their gender, and many other groups, including Medicaid recipients, rural hospitals and more, do not suffer".

"That doesn't mean the law will end overnight". Nineteen percent of voters identifying as Democrats said it should be repealed with a transition period to create a new plan and 15 percent said it should be left as-is.

MI star Jabrill Peppers (injury) out for Orange Bowl tonight
Luckily for the Orange Bowl , it just might happen to have the best matchup of all the non-College Football Playoff games. He is the biggest playmaker the Seminoles have and when Cook has success, it usually leads to a Seminoles' victory.

"From a messaging standpoint, yes I worry", Thune said. A quarter reversed their opinion after being told some people who got insurance because of the law would lose it if the law were repealed.

And Ohio's uninsured rate has dropped from 12 percent in 2013 to 6 percent in 2015. "If in fact the Republicans make some modifications, some of which I may have been seeking previously, but they wouldn't cooperate because they didn't want to - make the system work, and relabel it as Trumpcare, I'm fine with that", he said in an exclusive interview on "This Week" Sunday. "But I want to see it first".

"'Repeal and replace' is a deceptively catchy phrase", Obama wrote in an essay for the New England Journal of Medicine, published on Friday. According to the Washington Post, Trump is leaning on Senator Rand Paul from Kentucky to persuade the rest of the GOP not to vote on the budget resolution with language in it to repeal the ACA. That generic budget would also allow them to use a filibuster-proof process known as budget reconciliation to pass a simple, one-sentence repeal of Obamacare with 51 Senate votes and have it ready for President-elect Trump to sign soon after inauguration.

By almost any measure, ObamaCare has failed: It didn't lower costs, it didn't increase choice, middle-class families continue to lose health plans they were promised they could keep, and Americans continue to call for ObamaCare's repeal. He said he spoke with Trump's team Tuesday morning and that he's "looking at" Trump's timeline. "Not going to happen".

It has been reported the Democrat strategy will be to exploit differences of opinion among Republicans in Congress about a replacement for Obamacare.

In the days leading up to president-elect Donald Trump's inauguration, MI doctors and parents are speaking out against one of his biggest promises.

"Well, it really depends what - what the piece of legislation is", Conway said on CNN's "State of the Union" when asked about a repeal date. So is the provision barring insurers from denying coverage based on pre-existing conditions. The president discussed the future of Obamacare during a livestreamed broadcast.
