“House Republicans will continue to work to repeal this law and protect families and small businesses from its harmful consequences," he added.Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said that “millions of Americans [are] facing higher premiums, canceled plans and the loss of doctors and hospitals they liked as a result of this law.” Once again, he called for it to be scrapped.At least 14 million people, and maybe as many as 22 million will have quality, affordable, guaranteed insurance. That we know. What we don't know is what Republicans would do for those millions of Americans if they ever did manage to repeal the law. That's because, despite all of their promises, and four years of talking about it, they can't come up with a plan. They can't figure out how to continue all the protections that people now have with Obamacare and actually get a majority of Republicans behind it. We're never going to see their replacement plan because it can't be done. So when all else fails, they'll just have a repeal vote. And then another.
Meanwhile, 22 million people are going to get really used to the security and the peace of mind, not to mention the health benefits, of having good insurance. And the only answer the Republicans have right now is to take it away from them. That really is pathological.
