Depends on who you talk to . . . and who has read the law . . . and who hasn't.
Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.), the No. 4 House Republican, is walking back comments attributed to her that ObamaCare can’t be repealed. But she’s not the only one suggesting Congress merely make changes within the framework of the health law. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says the goal is to get the law “fixed.” It seems many GOP lawmakers still haven’t read the law, or they’d know the framework is corrupt.NY Post
Pretty strong words, don'tcha think?
Or just brutal honesty.
8 million have allegedly signed up for Obamacare.
The population is around 315 million. About a third of those are on Medicare or Medicaid. That leaves 200 million+ that could be covered by some form of Obamacare (including employer plans that pass the IRS smell test).
So why can't it be repealed?
Instead of government employees promoting ObamaCare and enrolling the uninsured, the law (Sec. 1311) reserves these jobs for community activists, unions, community health centers and other not-for-profits. Players include the NAACP, Planned Parenthood and Service Employees International Union. Hiring these groups is a way to fund the Democratic Party’s shadow army between elections.
Assisters sign up the uninsured for non-health benefits and register them to vote. The National Association of Community Health Centers identifies voter registration as a key part of its mission.
