Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) is warning that the GOP can only do so much to repeal ObamaCare, downplaying lawmakers’ ability to completely dismantle the law, reports The Hill.
“We only have so much power to repeal certain elements of ObamaCare through reconciliation — 51 votes — the taxes, the subsidies,” Johnson told CNN on Friday morning.
Some Republican lawmakers have privately voiced concerns about plans to repeal ObamaCare through the fast-track process of budget reconciliation, as well as how they will replace it without revoking insurance from the roughly 20 million people covered under the law.
