The National Review has come out in favor of President Donald Trump’s plan to have the Affordable Care Act struck down by the courts and replaced with a GOP healthcare plan.
The conservative magazine published an op-ed from the editors on Monday, writing that “the Senate will wait for the White House and the Democrats to reach a deal before it tackles health care,” and that “Republican strategists say the senators are right: Why put forward a plan and open Republicans to attack over it, when the party can concentrate instead on making the case against Democratic proposals to kick Americans off their health insurance and move toward a government monopoly?”
They add later, “The Republican administration is urging its abolition in court. Democrats already have enough warrant to accuse Republicans of seeking to eliminate a health law on which many millions of Americans rely. Republicans can choose whether to respond to that attack by pointing to their own plan, or by letting Democrats devise a caricatured conservative plan to tie to them.”
The editors conclude that Republicans “should propose that the federal government both remove many of Obamacare’s regulations and redirect the money now flowing to Obamacare’s exchanges and its Medicaid expansions to state governments, which would then determine how to spend it to meet their residents’ health-care needs.”
