Can Obamacare be repealed, in its entirety, through the budget reconciliation process?

Some Republican leaders were hopeful that they would not be forced to answer that question. With a decision in King v. Burwell looming, it became increasingly clear that they planned not to keep the promise they had made in their budget to use reconciliation to repeal Obamacare. Instead, they would use it for some kind of response to the expected decision.

In that environment, questions about the feasibility of repealing Obamacare using reconciliation were put on the back burner. But with the Supreme Court’s unexpected and indefensible ruling on King v. Burwell, Republican leaders are expected to return to their initial promise.

If you believed most of what you hear and read on this subject, you would be certain that the answer to the initial question is: No. Reconciliation cannot repeal the law in its entirety — only individual provisions affecting the budget. Furthermore, the Congressional Budget Office says that repeal would increase the deficit, and any action that would do so is ruled out in reconciliation.

With due respect to those voices, Congress indeed can — on the basis of reconciliation statute and reconciliation precedent — repeal all of Obamacare using that process.

There are obstacles, but they are not insurmountable....

Oh, goodie: "Republican leaders are expected to return to their initial promise."

It's the record of "Republican leaders" for fulfilling their promises that has led to Trump.

I have learned never trust a Republican or a Democrat OR any other politician in an election year.

One simple truth: They lie in order to get elected, and then once elected they will do whatever the donors tell them to do and the people of the country can go to hades as far as they are concerned.
