Obamacare may outlast the Trump administration.
Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) warned Thursday that it could take years to fully repeal and replace Obamacare.
“Eventually, we’ll need 60 votes to complete the process of replacing Obamacare and repealing it because Obamacare was not passed by reconciliation it was passed by 60 votes. And it was cleaned up by reconciliation because Scott Brown won his election,” Alexander said. “Before the process is over, we’ll need a consensus to complete it, and I imagine this will take several years to completely make that sort of transition to make sure we do no harm, create a good health care system that everyone has access to and that we repeal the parts of Obamacare that need to be repealed.”
By that time they’ll have found other shiny objects to chase.
