An article published in The Daily Beast explains why the Republicans will have a hard time repealing President Obama’s historical Health Care Bill, citing GOP candidates are more focused on the economy.
The Daily Beast Reports:
Republican presidential candidates are still vowing to repeal the Affordable Care Act, of course, but they are mainly going after President Obama’s economic record. That makes sense because the lagging economy is by far the top concern of voters. It also makes sense because with each passing month, the health-care law is woven more tightly into the fabric of American life and becomes more difficult to unravel.
David Axelrod, Obama’s top political adviser, says Republicans will make a mistake if they dwell next year on repealing the law. “The American people want to move forward. If there are problems with reform, fix it. They don’t want to start all over again,” he told me.
The article also reports that Republican candidates would have to not only repeal the bill, but formulate an alternative, which could be difficult.
