Replacing Obamacare: What to Do About Medicaid?

One consequence of the 2016 election is that

Congress has started the process of repealing Obamacare, but lawmakers have not united around a replacement plan.

However, some Republicans are standing by the promise to repeal the law, including Rep. Raúl Labrador, R-Idaho, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, according to the report. It repealed the taxes - including the individual mandate - right away, while delaying for two years repeal of the laws' subsidies and Medicaid expansion.

When he took office, Trump signed an executive order directing federal agencies to take all possible steps to minimize the "burdens" the law imposes.

If you're like a lot of folks, you may have been dragging your feet because of uncertainty over the fate of the Affordable Care Act (otherwise known as Obamacare).

This is a room of the ACA House we need to remodel - maybe down to the studs. In the meantime, millions of people will lose their access to life-saving coverage. That's what the American people expect us to do - and they expect us to do it quickly.

The same CBO report estimates that 32 million more Americans would become uninsured by 2026, and that the prices of premiums paid by those people who remain in individual plans would double by that year.

For an industry that relies on assessing and managing risk, it is foolish to inject unnecessary risk into the market by saying "we will definitely change the rules under which you function, but we won't tell you what they are quite yet".
