What will House, Senate GOP do about ObamaCare?

ObamaCare (generic)There has been much speculation about what Republicans want to do in the House and Senate, but one conservative is hoping that ObamaCare remains on their to-do list.

"This is the number one promise of Republicans for nearly a decade now – ever since ObamaCare became law in 2010," Chris Pandolfo of Conservative Review asserted. "Every election year, they tell us they're going to fully repeal ObamaCare, and some people who are running for re-election right now are telling us, 'We're going to fully repeal ObamaCare if Republicans keep their majorities.'"

Pandolfo insists that Republicans need to deliver on this promise.

"They need to show that they're serious about it," the conservative political analyst impressed. "Voters can tell when politicians are being fake and when politicians are being phony – and they don't reward that behavior. So, if Republicans don't keep their promises – like repealing ObamaCare – they're not going to do well in the mid-terms."

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed by Congress and signed by President Donald Trump repealed the individual mandate penalty that taxes people who go without health insurance – something the Affordable Care Act calls for in the text of the law.

However, critics of the tax reform bill – as well as people who want a full repeal of ObamaCare – say the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act zeroes out the penalty … meaning another Congress and president could reinstate it at a later date.

Also remaining in the Affordable Care Act are regulations that critics believe are causing high premiums and deductibles.
