Obamacare Is A Disaster, But The Replacement Needs Fine-Tuning

Originally Published in The Daily Caller on 3/15/17.

All grassroots conservatives agree that Obamacare is a disaster. Health insurance premiums increased by 25 percent for 2017. One-third of counties in the United States are only one health insurance company exit away from not having any access to private health insurance coverage on the Obamacare exchanges.

Only 7 of 23 Obamacare co-ops, which were supposed to function as liberal alternatives to a public option, still remain open. It’s no wonder that Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini recently commented that Obamacare is in “a death spiral.”

For nearly seven years, grassroots conservatives have fought for the repeal of Obamacare. They worked to help Republicans win control of the House of Representatives in 2010, take back the Senate in 2014 and put a Republican in the White House in 2016. Now is the time to full Republicans’ campaign promises “by pulling out Obamacare root and branch,” as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) once said.
