Any Partial Repeal of Obamacare Will Be DOA

Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY), Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Mike Lee (R-UT) each Tweeted out that there should be a full repeal of Obamacare — nothing less.

Given the fact there are only 52 GOP senators, should the three of them band together against any legislative effort by Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to offer only a partial repeal, as they suggest they will, they would likely doom such an effort in the U.S. Senate. It is highly unlikely Democrats would support even partial repeal of the former president’s healthcare law.

“We expect a full repeal of Obamacare and will not accept anything less,” a Senate GOP aide familiar with the efforts by Paul, Cruz, and Lee said late Monday when reached by Breitbart News. “Anything less is dead on arrival.”
