Republican lawmakers must apply the brakes in their bid to pass the American Health Care Act as quickly as possible, says Yuval Levin, editor of National Affairs and contributing editor to National Review and The Weekly Standard.

"The bill they're pursuing instead now needs improvement, and the kind of constructive criticism that got them here can take them further still," Levin wrote in a National Review opinion piece.

"That may mean that the process cannot move as quickly as leading Republicans now insist it must. But it could also give the final bill a much better chance of success."

Levin, who was a member of the White House domestic policy staff under President George W. Bush, said the hope of Republican leaders to push the bill through the House and the Senate in record time "seemed implausible."

And the Congressional Budget Office then "made things even worse" by projecting it would leave about 24 million more people without insurance in 10 years, he added.
