R&R the ACA?

At Thetford Town Meeting yesterday, three different folks asked me about the Affordable Care Act. Will it remain in place? What happens if the plug gets pulled? Someday soon a Republican in Washington might step to the podium to lay out a detailed plan on repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act (“ACA” or “Obamacare”). Maybe it will be Paul Ryan. Maybe Tom Price. Possibly Mitch McConnell or even Sean Spicer. Candidate Trump and congressional Republicans spent 2016 pledging to repeal Obamacare on “Day 1” and replace it with “something that works.” The law is proving to be more difficult to topple now that the campaign season has passed and the governing season is upon us. Repeal
