I could write volumes on why the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was a bad bill. It should be replaced. The big question is what will follow it and how it will be administered.
The current law is extremely complex. It is 900 pages long and has 11,000 pages of regulations. It took fourteen months to pass. They had a couple of years to implement it and they failed badly.
Many Republicans want to go ahead and repeal it now and figure out its replacement later. Some say even twelve months is too long a time. Right now there is only a hazy outline of what some of the provisions will be and many ideas don’t make sense. To think they can accomplish in months what the Obama administration failed to do in years is utterly ridiculous.
For the last eight years the Republicans have been like patrons at a play booing the actors. Now they are on the stage. If they want to stay there, they need to learn to act.
