Full Obamacare repeal

The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is an atrocity that should be repealed at the earliest possibility. Consider first that this bill was passed in near-total ignorance. Next, it was passed by a partisan majority without a single favorable vote from the opposing party.

Since they had not read and did not know what the bill would do, it seems they passed it more to win a political battle than to provide something of value for the American people. The law should be repealed, if for no other reason than to show the undesirability and ultimate futility of such political shenanigans.

Does health care in this country need to be revamped and made more affordable? Absolutely! The GOP should start immediately from ground zero to create something that actually addresses health care.

While the ACA seems more about health insurance reform than health care, the desirable provisions from that law could be included in the replacement bill. Without doubt, the very first statement in the new bill should state clearly that the ACA is thereby repealed in its entirety.
