Prediction: If Republicans take the Senate, they blow up the filibuster on everything and ram their agenda down our throats.
Prediction: Everybody thinks that after two years, it will be impossible for Republicans to repeal the Affordable Care Act. They would be wrong, and we will see it repealed.
Do Democrats and independents really think they'll back down? Republicans will do anything now:
Rep. Phil Roe (R-TN) cracked a joke on Monday about destroying Obamacare with a nuclear bomb. "Can't you just tweak Obamacare? Yeah, with a nuclear bomb," he said during a conservative policy summit at the Heritage Foundation. "We have to repeal it," he said.
They still want to repeal it outright. Is that too unclear.
For proof, look no further than thil little known story coming out of Arkansas. Republicans there trying to “un-expand” Medicaid, taking away care and the same family doctors Republicans just criticized ObamaCare for doing. So, this time it's justified? As reported by Chris Hayes:
A decision to halt the program in Arkansas could leave as many as 200,000 people who are believed eligible for the program without coverage and have a chilling effect on other states weighing similar efforts.
