First Union Officially Calls for Obamacare Repeal

    If more unions follow suit the repeal of the law is all but guaranteed. The president may not want to sign the repeal into law but politicians, over reliant on union contributions for their campaign, will have a significant incentive to comply. Of course the unions will never support the Republicans but if they stay home or deny or reduce their financial support trouble in the sky.

      I think as long as healthcare remains an issue in need of reform, which I don’t see how it doesn’t, and as long as the Obama administration and supporters of the ACA can say it doesn’t go into full effect until 2018, then I don’t see the President repealing his own legislative cornerstone during his tenure.

      To me the only way the law gets repealed is if there is a viable and credible alternative. I’m not a fan of Obamacare, but it would be nice if someone, like say the Republicans, actually came up with a large enough reform policy to supplant the ACA.

        Indeed LivingRock, that would be good.

    GOP’s core message for the next few years… “Is it justice for people who’ve worked for their money to lose it, for the sake of people who didn’t work for it?”
