Dear Editor,

“We the People” are so close to taking back our health care. There are no more excuses it’s time to repeal Obamacare! Since 2010, Republicans have promised a full repeal of Obamacare. This provides the opportunity to undo Obamacare created mishaps; such as cancellation errors, increased premiums, and the lack of access to existing primary care physicians. The “two budget” repeal strategy is the best unified plan to fully repeal Obamacare.

Research shows “The Affordable Care Act” is not affordable.” The important thing is that the two budget strategy will ensure the momentum to repeal Obamacare successfully. It provides ample time for individuals who have insurance through the Obamacare exchanges to transition back to the individual market without losing coverage.

Congress should begin this process in January by passing the fiscal year 2017 budget that failed to pass earlier in the year. That generic budget would also allow them to use a filibuster-proof process known as budget reconciliation to pass a simple, one-sentence repeal of Obamacare with  51 Senate votes and have it ready for President-elect Trump to sign soon after inauguration.

Once Obamacare is repealed, Congress should pass a second budget for fiscal year 2018 that lowers spending levels and then debate and pass a series of conservative, free-market healthcare reforms that enact consumer choice, strengthen the doctor-patient relationship and lower cost.

Contact your Republican leaders in Congress today at their district office and let Congress know “there are no more excuses as Republicans Unite to Repeal Obamacare.”
