Some members of Congress have been talking about repealing Obamacare since the day it became law -- for nothing but political reasons.
Because here's the truth: In the six years that have passed since then -- and even as the House and Senate voted to advance Obamacare's repeal this week -- they still haven't come up with a realistic plan to replace it with something better.
Obamacare's impacts are clear. More than 20 million people have gained coverage, many for the first time. It's driven the uninsured rate to an all-time low, and it has held the growth of health care costs to the lowest levels in 50 years.
So when these members of Congress talk a big game about repealing Obamacare, they have some tough questions to answer.
Unprecedented chaos in the health care system -- which is what doctors' and hospitals' associations are warning will happen if repeal goes through -- is not a plan.
We need to stand up and stop the rush to repeal -- we can't trust that suddenly, magically congressional leaders will come through this time.
Take a stand to stop the rush to repeal Obamacare, and we'll follow up with more actions you can take to stop this irresponsible scheme.
These people bent on repeal will undoubtedly come up with something in the coming days that they're going to call a plan. But with so much at stake, we can't take it at face value -- we need to take a good, hard look.
Before tearing anything down, Congress should show us their plan to replace our health care, including how they lower costs, keep people covered, and protect people with pre-existing conditions.
We won't let them get away with hand-waving and distraction, and we won't let them change the subject. We're going to be saying loud and clear: Calling it a plan doesn't make it one.
Let's keep holding their feet to the fire.
