“Yes, if Romney wins the White House and his Republican allies retake the Senate, he could shred most of President Barack Obama’s health care law without having to overpower a Democratic filibuster. But it won’t be as easy as some Republicans portend, and it certainly won’t be quick.
“Why? Because any realistic effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act — as opposed to last week’s quixotic vote in the GOP-controlled House — is sure to get jumbled together with lots of other issues, including Medicare, taxes, food stamps and defense spending.
“And that’s because Republicans have to first pass a budget.”
(I read Andrew Taylor’s article “Repealing Obama’s health care law won’t be easy” in the Wyoming Tribune Eagle Online. [http://www.wyomingnews.com/articles/2012/07/16/ap/headlines/us_repealing_obamacare_for_real.txt] but the link is now dead. It appears that the AP pulls their articles after a few days.)
