(KLTV) - The U.S. Senate has given up hope of passing an overhaul of Obamacare, so the matter is dead legislatively for now.
President Trump delivered some confusing tweets afterwards, but it appears he is suggesting that Congress should just allow The Affordable Care Act to collapse and that will become the motivation for more republicans and even democrats to come to the bargaining table with an absolute need to get new legislation passed.
Let it fail.
That seems like a possible solution to this, but is it really? For many Americans, Obamacare has already failed – with huge increases in premiums, restrictive changes in coverage and an overall reduction in their healthcare. Failure for them will mean an additional year or longer before any kind of relief shows up, and that is really too long, especially with the prospect of more and more Americans being added to the failed list.
