Should We Repeal Obamacare? The New York Times Thinks So

by Jeremy Holcombe

The fight over Obamacare is at an all-time frenzied high. Many believe that the entire law should be repealed, and now even the New York Times is jumping in on the act, citing the 1989 Health Care Law put forth by Ronald Reagan as proof that repeal of Obamacare is possible.

Breitbart News recalled on October 14th that Congress once repealed Ronald Reagan’s “signature” health law. The article was inspired by the spurious arguments then being made by Democrats that President Barack Obama could not accept any changes to his own signature legislation. One month later, Democrats are desperate to change Obamacare — and the New York Times is exploring repeal, citing the Reagan precedent.

These latest arguments for repeal come directly after an article by Carl Hulse earlier this week, which covers old ground but draws a new “lesson”: that Obamacare will not be as easy to repeal because it provides widespread benefits — unless “you get a few white-haired women to jump on the hood of someone’s car.”

The reference is to an infamous protest against the late Rep. Dan Rostenkowski, then chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, at a meeting with seniors in Chicago.

The organizer behind that protest was Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), who is now one of Obamacare’s champions and who infamously promised to “put the private insurance industry out of business.” Her husband, convicted felon Robert Creamer, is one of the chief strategists behind the law and is responsible for the idea, popular among Obama advisers, that once enacted it would be impossible to repeal.

Can Obamacare be repealed? It seems like the nation is split on this topic. Many think the law will be easy to repeal, because so many disagree with it. However, a law like this will not be easy to repeal. It can be delayed, but a total repeal would be a tough road, though it could happen.

Based on the fact that Reagan’s Health Care Law from 1989 was repealed, many will now assume that an easier road lie ahead for those in favor of repealing the Obamacare bill.
