The Senate Republicans are now pushing a so called “skinny repeal” of Obamacare that gets rid of the individual mandate and also gets rid of the employer mandate.
This is not repeal and it is not responsible.
Skinny repeal will allow people to abandon health care insurance if they do not want it, but with the pre-existing coverage requirement in place, people can then hold off on getting insurance until they need it, which undermines the whole system of insurance.
That will cause premiums to rise, which will have a cyclical effect pushing more people to hold off on insurance until they need it.
