With how many attempts there have been, its not unreasonable to think its the unrepealable bill! However, that’s not stopping more attempts. The most recent attempt is within the upcoming tax bill. Unsurprisingly, Senators Ted Cruz and Mark Meadows were particularly anxious to get the repeal as a rider into the tax bill. This enthusiasm was seemingly supported by President Trump.
Some experts are saying that this repeal could mean 15 million people would lose coverage. This would save the federal government about $400 billion in the long run. Something that is very attractive to other Republican conservatives.
However, many senators like Orrin Hatch aren’t thrilled with the idea of mingling tax reform with healthcare.
Time will only tell if this will finally be the repeal that the Republicans have so desperately been looking for.
