On November 8, 2016, the Republicans maintained control of the House and Senate and won the White House, handily. If there was ever a mandate given to the GOP it is now.
It can be argued that a major factor for this win was the promise of a full repeal of ObamaCare. President Trump made this promise over and over again on the campaign trail, and Republicans in the House and Senate have assured us that repeal would happen.
Furthermore, an increasing number of voters have wanted a repeal of ObamaCare since it became law. For instance, in a recent Civitas Poll of unaffiliated voters, 58 percent said they oppose the Affordable Care Act.
The future for this bill, which many have already dubbed “ObamaCare Lite,” is that it will almost surely fail (as badly or worse than ObamaCare has), making way for Democrats to swoop in and “save the day” with a single-payer system. Thanks, Republicans.
