The Realities of AHCA

AHCA, a.k.a. Obamacare is front in center with the Republican presidential candidates.  “I will repeal Obamacare.  I’ll grant a waiver on Day One to get that started,” says Romney. Governor Perry says, “I will use an executive order to get rid of as much of Obamacare as I can on Day One.”  And not to be outdone,  candidate Cain, states, “Obamacare must be replaced because it is a disaster.”  So, what’s really going to happen?Most folks in the know understand that these are campaign empty promises — the only chance of changing Obamacare sits in the Supreme Court’s hands, and even that may not end up dismantling it.  So, let’s get real and understand that AHCA has a lot of moving parts, many of which I do not care for and others which make sense.  I just wish that the candidates would be more forthcoming.

Here’s a good pragmatic read.
