New poll finds Republicans sharply divided on Obamacare repeal

"If nothing is done by Congress, the death spiral of Obamacare will continue". They can't site much evidence for their claim.

Tensions flared while the secretary of Health and Human Services nominee answered questions on how to give the most, and best, health care coverage possible. But no, they really have never been committed to replacing the ACA, only killing it, in the same way they would like to end Social Security and Medicare.

The program, which brought insurance to almost 20 million Americans, had been labeled a "disaster" by President-elect Donald Trump. "In 40 years of practicing medicine, I saw many people who would bypass tests or not take their medicines because they couldn't afford them", said Epstein. The co-ops have failed dramatically - all 23 of them are in financial trouble. No so for the United States.

Today, because of Obamacare, we don't have pre-existing conditions.

And, since the repeal of ACA allows states to reduce Medicaid eligibility, 4.4 million children and 7.6 million parents will lose their insurance. After roughly two years, the number of uninsured would jump by 27 million and premiums would increase by about 50 percent.

The state has an aging population and more than 75,000 Mainers have coverage through the Affordable Care Act. It's unclear yet, what, if anything, Republicans plan to replace it with.

"We need to protect the Affordable Care Act [ACA]", Cahill said on the eve of the inauguration of Donald Trump as President. That budget prevents Democrats from using a Senate filibuster to stop the GOP from repealing Obamacare.

Obamacare didn't crash the economy or bankrupt the country like Republicans predicted. "These decisions made healthcare accessible to many Nevadans who had never had coverage options before". I don't believe they can do it, though.

"I have access to buying a $10 million home". It's an ideological move to appeal to the Republican base.

Since it was enacted in March 2010, the ACA aimed to provide consumers with subsidies that lower health costs, expand the Medicaid program and support innovative medical care delivery methods that lower health costs overall. If you can't, tough luck.
