Repeal and Replace ObamaCare

So what do we mean by that, exactly? The fallout from ObamaCare is just beginning, with news articles every day showing the damage the health overhaul law is poised to inflict on our economy and health sector.

The latest Rasmussen poll found 54% of those surveyed want the law repealed. But there are real problems in our health sector that demand it be replaced with a better plan.

Opponents of ObamaCare have seized on the repeal and replace theme as an acknowledgement that we must stop this government takeover of our health sector and offer better ideas.
