Obamacare is close to death after Trump's election

There is an overwhelming chance that the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, is facing its last few months of existence as we know it.

For the past few years, congressional Republicans have taken symbolic vote after symbolic vote to repeal Obamacare. And now, with control of the executive branch, these votes will probably become more than just a statement.

In a press conference Wednesday, House Speaker Paul Ryan said the ACA was an "unpopular law" and that Congress has already proven it could "repeal and replace" it.

Additionally, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that repealing the ACA was a priority for Republicans.

"It's pretty high on our agenda, as you know. I would be shocked if we didn't move forward and keep our commitment to the American people," McConnell said at a press conference on Wednesday.

So I guess there is no need to re-enroll

I wouldn't count on it. Ben Carson mentioned the need to come up with a replacement first. I think a lot of people would be satisifed if the fine for not enrolling was eliminated in the meantime.

It is not the end, Trump is already compromising on it. He wants to keep parts of it and just so you idiots are aware if someone comes to the hospital without insurance, the people with insurance are the ones who rates go up. It is in everyone's best interest that we all have medical insurance.

Mitch McDonnell was one of the major sheep that let them pass it without reading it, and we're still listening to him talk about how bad it is?

He needs to sit down, shut up, and let real Conservatives kill Obamacare. All Mitch will want to do is change a couple of sentences in it and claim a "victory".

Trump isn't compromising he is being smart to take time to replace it so people don't have to go through a period of not having any health insurance.
