Republicans increasingly worried about Obamacare plan

Senator Paul Rand is not to the idea as well and reiterates that President-Elect Donald Trump shares the same sentiments.

This week Republicans are in readying to vote to repeal sections of the Affordable Care Act, and in doing that, start the process of rolling back the gains that Act has provided. Over 20 million people are covered by Obamacare, and it will take a careful balancing act to give the people an alternative.

Divisions are now appearing in the Grand Old Party over how to go about the vote, and what alternative to offer in place of Obamacare. Voices of discontent have started speaking up, and there is also the fear of a political backlash if there will not be a solution in place.

This is the strategy GOP plans on taking where they will repeal the act, and then delay the implementation until they have put their heads together and come up with a well-crafted replacement.

Senator Bob Cocker warned his colleagues of the dangers of repealing with no tangible way forward when he talked to CNN. "To me," he said. "It's much more prudent to figure out where you're going to go from here and attempt to do it all at the same time. People will see some of the flaws in just repealing only."

Senator Paul Rand is not to the idea as well and reiterates that President-Elect Donald Trump shares the same sentiments. Where Obamacare should be repealed when an immediate replacement has been put in place.

Those in support have come out to defend themselves saying that this is just the first step in a long process.
