|Rand Paul heads to the basement to find House GOP's Obamacare replacement to no avail.|
Who would of thought health care reform was so hard?
The words were uttered by fuhrer Donald J. Trump. He demands lawmakers to repeal and replace Obamacare (commonly referred as the Affordable Care Act).
Republicans spent nearly eight years trying to repeal the law. And now that the law is 95% in effect, they really are finding it harder to repeal a law that is currently active and is actually working.
The Republicans vow to find a suitable replacement to the law. The members of the House even have the proposal tucked under lock and key in an area around the Capitol.
|Democrats vow to oppose any repeal of the Affordable Care Act.|
The Democrats and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) dismissed this showboating.
The pressure is on.
If they repeal the law, they could endanger millions who have benefited from the Affordable Care Act.
Mocking the showboating, Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), the Minority Whip, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), the Minority Leader both roundly mocked the idea of the proposal being under "lock and key."
