Passage in Two Houses
The most important thing to know about repealing Obamacare and making President Trump’s AHCA the law of the land is that this process must pass both Houses of Congress. While the AHCA has already been passed by the House of Representatives, it will face a much stiffer challenge in the Senate. In fact, if the Senate does pass the bill, it will likely only be after major changes have been made, which will likely reduce its effectiveness.
If you want to make sure that the AHCA passes both Houses and finally repeals Obamacare, it’s important for you to lobby both your Congressmen and Senators. Putting pressure on your representatives will increase the chances of the bill’s passage.
One of the biggest obstacles in the path of the Obamacare repeal and the passage of the AHCA has been the misinformation campaign of the media and the radical left. For example, when the AHCA was passed by the House, the opposition immediately claimed that the bill would harm those with pre-existing conditions, which is patently untrue.
The passage of the AHCA and the repeal of Obamacare is meant to return our healthcare system to robust free market principles, lowering costs for all Americans, including those with pre-existing conditions. Republicans in Nevada intent on repealing Obamacare must fight this misinformation and fake news by explaining the benefits of the AHCA to their friends and family.
Congressional Budget Office
When a bill like the AHCA is passed, it is subject to review by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). The CBO will examine the bill and determine its impact on the economy and the deficit. While the CBO claims to be a non-partisan organization, they have certainly leaned to the left in recent years, which may pose a problem for the repeal effort.
AHCA opponents like Missouri Republican Roy Blunt have already expressed that the bill will only pass the Senate if it receives the right type of CBO score. Supporters of repeal must make it clear that the CBO does not decide which laws will be passed by Congress, and that their estimate has little bearing on the actual effects of the AHCA.
