Repealing Obamacare Will Have Serious Consequences, White House Press Secretary Warns


Time: 10:24 p.m. CEST

The White House press secretary Josh Earnest says if new administration repeals health care law, will be serious consequences. “It is going to have life and death consequences for some people in this country and before the trigger is pulled, the U.S. Congress needs to understand what consequences would be taking this action,” Earnest said during the news briefing on January 12.

After the major step by the Senate on Wednesday, the bill will move to the House of Representatives on Friday, as NBCNews.com reports. The vote in the Senate does not repeal President Obama’s signature achievement with the Affordable Care Act. “But, it does set the stage for Republicans to clear the first procedural hurdle for repeal of the massive health care law.”

There will be serious consequences for repealing ACA, as we discussed it, it is going to have life and death consequences for some people in this country and before the trigger is pulled, the U.S. Congress needs to understand what consequences would be taking this action.

In a reaction on the vote that happened on Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, “The Senate took an important step toward repealing and replacing Obamacare by passing the resolution that provides the legislative tools necessary to actually repeal this failed law, while we move ahead with smarter health care policies.”
