Senate Will Vote on Repealing Obamacare By the End of the Week

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Sunday on CBS  the Senate would vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act by the end of this week, with the House moving shortly after.

However, a government designed "replacement" plan, not free market healthcare is being developed by lawmakers. The replacement plan will not be ready for a vote this week.

  1. ALEC has likely been working on this a few minutes after the original ACA was passed:

    I've noticed that ALEC has rebranded itself in the last couple of years to pass itself off as a non-partisan non-profit entity for society's good.

  2. Rand Paul is said to have convinced Trump to wait on the repeal. Ron Paul's apple seems to have fallen, rolled down the stream into the river, and been swept into an ocean, far from the tree.

    1. That doesn't seem to match Rand Paul's words, "I just spoke to @realDonaldTrump and he fully supports my plan to replace Obamacare the same day we repeal it. The time to act is now."

    2. It seems rather far-fetched to imagine there will be such a plan. Let's wait and see what happens, and I'll be the first to admit if I am wrong, but I suspect the only outcome is that Obamacare does not get repealed by Friday.
