GOP Fixes ObamaCare?

Election questions.

By a voice vote the Republican House passed a small revision to ObamaCare attached to the Medicare “doc fix.” In short, the House voted to eliminate the cap on deductibles for small business plans. More important, it brings up questions about Republican strategy. Should they work to make ObamaCare the least bad they can, or should they let Democrats – and, by extension, the nation – suffer under the law that was crammed down our throats? The GOP is divided on this, as evidenced by the effort to sneak this fix through unnoticed. Obviously, Republicans don’t have the votes to repeal ObamaCare now, and the law is truly awful on its own. But can Republicans stand back and watch the blaze in order to score political points? It appears that’s the question of the election.
