I leafed through the original ACA (0bamacare) and the two latest attempts to “repeal” it.
You should do the same to see that when a bill consists of nothing but
“in line … of the ACA, change …this… to …that…”
then it is NOT a REPEAL, it’s a tinker and “fix.”
A repeal is
“The ACA is hereby repealed and all regulations issued by the Secretary of HHS under the authority of the ACA are null and void.”
THEN you let the free market provide private insurance to private individuals.
Just like home, auto, life, retirement, etc.
