Well, they really do have enough votes for a straight up "repeal." That is what is going to happen.

1. hmmmmm - not sure about that - there would be 32M off the rolls - not good PR for the GOP

and premiums would double by 2026

I am pretty sure 50 votes are not there

6. What you said.

They will never repeal without replace.


Markets hate uncertainty and the uncertainty in the insurance markets would cause rates to skyrocket. Even group market rates , which aren't part of the efforts, would be affected because they are ultimately part of the same pool.

It would be political seppuku.

The GOP isn't that stupid.

5. They had the votes when they knew damned well that Obama would veto.

 

Not so sure they have the votes to wreck and run our health care.

8. I don't think they can do a straight up repeal through reconciliation

Which means they would need 60 votes to pass cloture. The Dems didn't bother to filibuster the bills when Obama was President because they knew he would veto it. There is no way repeal would pass cloture
