Maybe the Repubs could repeal Obamacare, but it won’t be easy and it won’t be pretty

“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.)
