Repeal “Obamacare”. . . So What’s the Plan B?
Today, the Republican-led House will vote on the fate of President Obama’s health care bill. If the bill is repealed, Republican leaders will have stripped health coverage from 30 million uninsured Americans, including those already benefitting from the legislation. From Medicare recipients receiving discounts on expensive drugs to unemployed young adults who are able to remain on their parents’ health insurance plans to children with pre-existing health conditions, the House actions threaten the quality of health care for the most vulnerable Americans. As House Republicans continue to assail “Obamacare” and its supporters, we can’t help but ask, what is the opponents’ alternative to this historic legislation that promises to rebuild America’s crumbling health care system?
