Rare Truth from a Republican Governors: Even If Republicans Gain the Senate Obamacare Won't Be Repealed

Ohio Gov. John Kasich doesn't think the Affordable Care Act will be repealed, even if Republicans win a Senate majority and consolidate their hold on the House in next month's election. "That's not gonna happen," Kasich told The Associated Press during a recent re-election campaign swing.

"What we would anticipate is most likely to happen, even with a Republican Senate, is we'd have to work within the confines of where we are," said Marty Carpenter, spokesman for Republican Gov. Gary Herbert of Utah.

Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, another Republican seeking re-election, says "major changes" are required to the health care law. But he expects his state's Medicaid expansion to stand.

"I think our system and our approach is working, and I think other states are starting to look at our approach," Branstad said.


  1. Res ipsa loquitur. The thing speaks for itself. The Repugs are big govt. conservatives. They get to ride in the back of the bus going over the cliff driven by the Dims. Thanks for nuthin pal. The least these clowns could do is pass an option out clause to Obolocare. Think it will happen?

  2. Every Republican congressman I've heard talking about the ACA wants to replace it with a different plan. Not a work from them about allowing a free market.
