Last night on the Mark Levin Show, Levin explained how Republicans are hiding behind the budget reconciliation process as an excuse to not fully repeal Obamacare. But as he explains, the power to change the Senate rules are within their authority and they absolutely could repeal every word of Obamacare.
So why aren’t they doing it? Here’s a short blurb from Levin’s website:
Full repeal of Obamacare through the budget reconciliation process in the Senate is possible and they can do it with 51 votes. Paul Ryan even said on the Mark Levin show in 2012 that 85% of Obamacare could be repealed through this process. But neither the House nor the Senate, have even attempted to pass a full repeal of the law through this process. So why won’t the Republicans do this? Because there are so many moderates and liberals in the Republican party that some of them want some aspects of Obamacare to stay.
He fully explains his thoughts on this below:
Here are some links to backup Levin’s suspicions that all Republicans don’t want to fully repeal Obamacare in the Senate.
First, here’s the audio we posted of Paul Ryan telling Levin that 85% of Obamacare could be repealed through budget reconciliation.
Here’s audio from Levin in 2014 predicting that if Mitch McConnell becomes majority leader, Republicans will keep big portions of Obamacare – because McConnell admitted that Kentucky should be able to keep its state exchange.
Here’s the video of Susan Collins saying that it’s too late to repeal Obamacare in 2014 and audio of Levin responding.
And finally, here is audio of Levin hitting back in 2015 against Paul Ryan as presumptive Speaker for putting out an Obamacare repeal bill that left the most expenstive portions of Obamacare intact.
