Subject:          How to Repeal All of Obamacare with Reconciliation

Three years ago, Senate Republicans committed to using the budget reconciliation process to repeal Obamacare.  As such, it is no surprise the Republican budget conference agreement “affirms the use of reconciliation for the sole purpose of repealing the President’s job-killing health care law.”

Today, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senator Mike Lee issued a joint press release pledging to, as McConnell said, “continue our effort to use reconciliation — as the budget makes clear — to fulfill the promise we made to our constituents.”  Earlier this month, McConnell sought to downplay expectations by saying the Senate would “consider using budget reconciliation for repealing as much of Obamacare as is reconcilable” but cautioned “there are certain rules that have to be applied to what is reconcilable.”  His comments raised concerns — especially among conservative House members — that the Senate is procedurally unable to place a reconciliation bill that fully repeals Obamacare on the president’s desk.

Those concerns are overblown as a clear path forward exists.

  1. Mitch McConnell? Who promised Ted Cruz and conservatives something? why should we believe this promise?

    • McConnell has not lived up to Conservative Values. He has not been a lot different than Harry Reid. He has to Earn Trust. It isn’t a “Given”.

  3. Unless a Bill or Resolution passes Constitutional Muster. It should not even be brought to the floor! Period! What good is taking an Oath to Uphold & Defend The Law of the Land and then choose to ignore it?

  4. Problem is, most Americans don’t understand why Obama care is “job killing” We need to get the message out. In fact McConnell probably doesn’t understand either.

  5. you’re right, I don’t understand why Obama care is “job killing.” The USA has had 66 months of continuous job growth. Please explain the “job killing.”
