Gop Repeal Efforts Go Silent As Obamacare 'suicide' Plays Out

Upton bill begins repeal of Obamacare, not a fix

The Cato Institute's Tanner said repealing the law "hasn't been a realistic option for quite some time." Regardless, Republicans pushed by their conservative wing shut down the government for 16 days in October in an effort to defund the health care law. "They don't have to go down the legislative road to defund Obamacare at this point because it didn't work," Republican strategist Ron Bonjean said. Lawmakers pass more blame than bills in do-nothing Congress The move, pushed by the most hard-right members of the party, including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and multiple members of the House, did not sit well with the public and distracted the country from the horrible roll out of the federal health care exchanges.

That doesnt discredit the Upton Bill which is a partial repeal of Obamacare mandates. We should be for repeals, whether full or partial. Rome and free markets arent built in a day and the GOP needs to try and capitalize now on Obamas public lies and broken promises while Americans are hurting and thus attentive. Yes, Republicans can always decide to fold, cave and otherwise re-visit the timidity we saw after 18 days of the government shutdown. But the Upton bill is not timid and best addresses the fall-out from President Barack Obama (see video further below) and Democrats betrayed promise that if you like your plan, you can keep it without doing further violence to Liberty: The concept of the Upton bill is straightforward: it removes the impediments in Obamacare that have forced insurers to issue the cancellations in the first place.
