Repeal Obamacare Now
By Erick Erickson | February 27, 2017, 05:00am | @ewerickson

Republicans in Congress cannot figure out what to do. Some of them are waffling on repealing Obamacare. Congressman Mo Brooks of Alabama says some of his colleagues are getting cold feet because the bussed in Democrat protestors at their townhall meetings are scaring them.

Republicans have campaigned on repealing Obamacare since 2010. This past year, Republicans ran for re-election claiming to have voted for repeal upwards of 70 times. And now they may not even repeal it. If Republicans will not repeal Obamacare after campaigning since 2010 on that promise, they will keep no promise and no one should ever trust the GOP again.

The solution to this problem is simpler than the GOP or the DC press would have you believe. The GOP should repeal Obamacare without a replacement plan. They should make the effective repeal date January 1, 2018. They should begin work on a replacement plan knowing they have a date certain by which it must be done because Obamacare will no longer exist.

If the GOP tries to do repeal and replace together, they are guaranteed not a single Democrat vote. If they repeal Obamacare, they are guaranteed not a single Democrat vote. But once Obamacare is repealed, the GOP has the opportunity to do something the Democrats refused to do in 2009 — work on a bipartisan healthcare plan. But the only way to get Democrats to engage on this issue is to first repeal Obamacare.

Whether Democrats are willing to help or not, however, is besides the point. Republicans have promised for seven years now to repeal Obamacare. They cannot go back on their word now. They promised if they won Congress, they would do it. The won Congress and said they needed the White House. They got everything they wanted. They will now betray the trust of the American people if they do not keep their word. Obamacare still does not have majority popular support in this country. Americans do want it replaced with something else
