The doctor can’t see you now.

Consumers may hear that a lot more often after getting health insurance under President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

It’s not so secret.  Republicans have been talking about repealing Obamacare since the day it was passed.  And the House has been voting on repeal, and the Senate Republicans have been trying to figure out a way to use the reconciliation process.
