Take your time and do it right. Don't rush thru something stupid just so you can say you repealed Obamacare.

I will say this once more.
The only way to fix healthcare in America, is to make two things the case. First, socialise medicine as a science so that all hospitals are run by the state, all suppliers to that hospital are run by the state, all the people making pills, treatments, equipment for those hospitals, are state employees, and stop going to war in every other pisspot country that has mineral wealth to pay for it.

Why not instead look at every other country that has a single payer system? Their healthcare systems are continuously ranked way higher (with the exception of Canada who just rank higher) than the US. We are the only First World country in the world that doesn't have a single payer system. At the same time none of the countries that have a single payer system are clamoring to switch to the US model.
Single payer works better consistently the world over. If it you think it would fail in the US then that is the fault of the government not the healthcare model. How do you fix those failings? I'm sure there are multiple ways. But one way that will not fix it is to pass a bill that will have the government kowtowing to corporate interests more than they already are.
