Heritage has continued to stay at the front of the fight against Obamacare. Repeal been a priority for Heritage members since the horrible law passed, and it’s remained a priority for us too.
Now conservatives in Congress are plotting how to execute repeal — and they’re drawing from Heritage ideas to do so. Read below as The Weekly Standard explains the GOP’s plan for repealing Obamacare and Heritage’s role:
House speaker Paul Ryan, Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, and Vice President-elect Mike Pence (who is working closely with Ryan and McConnell on repeal) are already coalescing around a rough legislative framework. The plan might be summed up as: repeal, delay, replace. More precisely, Republicans plan to repeal most of the law, delay the implementation of most of that repeal for at least two years—and figure out what to replace it with in the interim.
It’s a legislative strategy adopted largely from the Heritage Foundation’s recommendations. The think tank’s health care experts Nina Owcharenko and Edmund F. Haislmaier authored a brief in November that advocated a four-step process that begins: “Maximize the reconciliation process for repeal.” According to Mitch McConnell, this will come in the form of an “Obamacare repeal resolution” on January 3, the first day of the new Congress.
Thank you for making this impact possible.
Do you feel like Heritage is doing enough to push for the full repeal of Obamacare? What else should be done?
