Obamacare is not sustainable.
A report released by the department of Health and Human Services indicates that 413,760 people in Pennsylvania and more than 11.5 million nationwide signed up for coverage as of December 24. Insurance markets are failing.
"This resolution will set the stage for true legislative relief from Obamacare Americans have long demanded, while ensuring a stable transition in which those with insurance will not lose access to health care coverage". In Wyoming and many parts of the country, Obamacare created an environment of instability in the insurance marketplace.

It would be irresponsible to ignore the realities of this law. Rand Paul to vote against his party and the bill in the Senate, though Republicans still had the votes needed to pass it. Leadership insists that the resolution is only a shell for the budget, and not the final numbers.
The cap is a major factor in the rising costs, Heritage Foundation health care policy analysts Edmund Haislmaier and Drew Gonshorowski wrote in a 2015 policy paper.

Many of those who opposed the process expressed concerns about the lack of a ready replacement health care plan. Don't take something as personal as health care and subject it to this big government experiment.
"It helps small businesses, helps our heroes, but we have to begin today to fix the bill itself", Davis said.
Hughes was joined by politicians, health care stakeholders and consumers who highlighted the ACA's importance and addressed the negative aspects of repealing the legislation.

"It's going well", said Chris Bond, a spokesman for House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.). "We have a huge challenge here, it was better tonight", incoming White House chief of staff Reince Priebus was heard saying after the two-hour meeting.
