GOP introduces Health Care ActWith Democrats regaining control of the House next year, are efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare dead?

Chris Pandolfo of Conservative Review tells OneNewsNow that "repeal and replace" was dead before the mid-terms. That's because Republicans adopted Democratic talking points on pre-existing conditions protections.

"The pre-existing conditions protections are Obamacare," he explains. "Those mandates and those regulations are the factors driving up the cost of health insurance premiums. It is the cause of our malfunctioning insurance market."

So when the GOP vows to protect pre-existing conditions, and also vows to repeal Obamacare, they are defending because pre-existing conditions is part of Obamacare, he complains. 

Hadley Heath Manning of Independent Women's Forum predicts that repeal and replace is not dead.

"Another way to ask that question is Are we never going to see major reforms to the Affordable Care Act? And I don't think that's necessarily the case," she says. "I do, however, think that Democrats will be on the one hand trying to protect the Affordable Care Act, and guard against major changes to it, while at the same time trying to figure out how to further expand government's role in health care."
