Tom Cotton: We Can’t Repeal ObamaCare and Say We’ll Have a Replacement in 2 Years

‘It would not be the right path for us to repeal ObamaCare without laying out a path forward’

RUSH EXCERPT:

COTTON: "Well, Chuck, I think you have to distinguish, when you take about a replacement, when it’s enacted and when it takes effect. ObamaCare was enacted in March of 2010 but some of the measures didn’t take effect for another few years. We as Republicans need to coalesce and impose solutions that ObamaCare made worse. That may not take effect until the open season of 2018 because you need to provide for an orderly transition. But I think it would not be the right path for us to repeal ObamaCare without laying out a path forward, even if the path say transitions gradually over the next year to two years. "
