Republican leaders in Washington have been anxiously waiting for the last seven years to do away with Obamacare. However, the alternative health plan currently presented in congress is receiving a lot of backlash from the people it was meant to please. The new bill would get rid of the mandate for most citizens in favor of a tax credit method that encourages people to buy insurance from the open market. Vice President Pence stated that this plan is a “framework for reform” and is still open to suggestion. Among the representatives who oppose the bill is Utah senator Mike Lee who stated “This is not the Obamacare repeal bill we’ve been looking for… it is a missed opportunity and a step in the wrong direction. We promised the American people we would drain the swamp and end business as usual in Washington. This bill does not do that.”
