Rush Limbaugh’s brother David makes some good points here. But I think the real battle to repeal Obamacare is in the Senate.
34 Senators are up for reelection in November and 22 of them are Democrats. At last reading, at least 9 of them are in trouble. Since the Democrat majority at present is so slim, if just 3 or 4 of those Democrats lost to Republicans, then Republicans retake control of the Senate.
But that’s just the beginning. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has said that he plans to use the strategy of budget reconciliation to bring Obamacare to the floor. It can be, he says, defunded with just 51 votes. Shakespeare said there’s many a slip ‘twixt cut and lip. Since the Senate doesn’t have a budget, and hasn’t had one for nearly 1000 days, just what will Obamacare be reconciled with, exactly? I don’t know.
And ole Mitch wants to repeal and replace Obamacare. With what, exactly? I don’t know that either.
