House Republicans have approved a bill to revise ObamaCare with only one vote to spare (217-214). Given the response from Democrats and the media, you’d think Republicans were really about to repeal ObamaCare. They’re not. According to Cato scholar Michael F. Cannon, “Rather than do what their supporters sent them to Washington to do—repeal ObamaCare and replace it with free-market reforms—House Republicans are pushing a bill that will increase health-insurance premiums, make health insurance worse for the sick, and ensure that Republicans rather than the real cause (ObamaCare) will take the blame.”
