Mike Pence Cautions Obamacare Repeal Must Be 'Orderly'

Paul won't back GOP budget paving way for Obama Care repeal

Republican U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, who takes office on January 20, and his party's congressional leaders have made repealing and replacing the law among their top priorities.

What has Donald Trump said?

The GOP is moving forward this month with plans to repeal ObamaCare without a replacement, but delay repeal going into effect for a few years to buy time for drafting an alternative.

Supporters of President Barack Obama's health care law warn that repealing the sweeping legislation without having a plan to replace it could strip millions of Americans of their insurance and threaten the stability of the country's individual insurance market.

After a meeting with House Republicans, Pence said in a press conference that erasing the law officially known as the Affordable Care Act will be the administration's top priority.

If anyone listened and paid attention to what the American people said when they voted, they want this place to work.

Following the loss to Virginia Tech, Krzyzewski talked about how so many interruptions this season have stunted his team's growth. You really could not have scripted a better start - or a better finish - than what the Blue Devils did against Georgia Tech.

"Today, we take the first steps to fix the nation's broken health care system, removing Washington from the equation and putting control back where it belongs: with patients, their families, and their doctors".

Pence told Republicans that, like Cheney, he'll have an office on the House side of the Capitol, in addition to the office he'll receive in the Senate as vice president, according to members and sources in the room for today's meeting.

Pence pointed to skyrocketing insurance premiums. These authorities permit the Budget Committee Chairs to adjust resolution figures as needed to accommodate patient-centered health care reform legislation in the future. The second step will be to replace it. "We're talking about really reforming the whole health-care system, and there's going to be a ripple effect, and it's going to ripple through all insurance coverage". Tenney reported that Trump's team is looking at a number of executive actions he can take in the short term, and in the long term, Republican lawmakers are hard at work creating a replacement plan.

Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.) on Thursday said there will be no changes to ObamaCare in 2017 or 2018.

"This law has failed. It's their obligation to come up with a replacement first and I think we have unanimity within our Democratic caucus on that position".

As the Post notes, it will take some time to undo the healthcare law.
