Repub­li­cans need to be look­ing for an es­cape route

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Re­gard­ing last week’s ar­ti­cle “The bat­tle be­gins as House Repub­li­cans re­lease ACA re­peal bill” (Mod­ern Health­care.com, March 6), Repub­li­cans are fac­ing a los­ing bat­tle here. Whether the hatchet falls in the rec­on­cil­i­a­tion process or by a full floor vote, they will be tak­ing huge ben­e­fits away from their vot­ers. Those vot­ers will not be pleased, and may very well change the balance in Congress in the next elec­tion, after which Democrats will re­store ben­e­fits and Repub­li­cans will be left with a stigma. If there is a way to slip out of this dis­as­ter be­fore threat­en­ing health­care for 20 mil­lion peo­ple, they had bet­ter hope they can find it.
