GOP Pushes ACA Mandate Repeal Inside Of Tax Reform

Republicans in the Senate have long been working to revise America’s taxation level, which they believe to currently be an undue burden upon the American people. Hoping to use the momentum of having won the Presidency and countless Senate, House and Governor seats, their latest iteration of the tax rewrite now includes the repeal of the “Obamacare” Affordable Care Act.

         The logic behind this move is that because the ACA has such an immense cost, its elimination is an integral part of tax reform. If successful the repeal of the ACA could save over $300 Billion over the course of roughly 10 years. That money would, in turn, be used to facilitate larger tax cuts to middle-class citizens.

         The ACA, controversial since its conception, has long been its own, independent debate beside overall tax reform. Considering how the merits and drawbacks of its repeal are still being hotly debated today, introducing something this controversial into the tax plan could get it defeated and result in a double-lose for Republicans if they are not careful. If successful, however, they would achieve a victory on two extremely important issues to the party’s platform.

         Considering how some are already predicting the Democrats to make a comeback in 2018, there might not be time for Republicans to introduce two separate bills on tax reform and then the ACA repeal. This double-or-nothing strategy could go either way. It is extremely important for the congressional Republicans to pass tax reform if they wish to gain the political capital necessary to retain their majorities. A tax cut could potentially spark massive amounts of economic growth, so much so that Republicans would essentially re-shape their public image.

         President Trump has suggested that with additional investment resulting from these cuts, the GDP could potentially see a 3-5% boost. The implications of this enormous amount of growth would make 2018 much more survivable for Republicans. They are currently at 50 estimated yes votes, yet many moderate Republicans such as McCain and Susan Collins may jump ship due to the ObamaCare repeal portion of the bill, which would be to condemn their own party to potentially catastrophic political losses.

         Meanwhile, in the House of Representatives, Republicans are planning to hold a vote for their own tax bill on Thursday the 16th. It is common for both houses of Congress to have a similar bill on the floor in case one of them is defeated. There has been virtually no major legislation that President Trump has been able to sign thus far, primarily due to congressional failure, however, this bill is their chance to turn everything around.
