A frequent Obamacare critic, Rep. Ellmers says GOP has its own plan
Sacramento Bee

The troubled start of the Affordable Care Act is giving Republican critics in Congress a new game plan.

Rep. Renee Ellmers, R-N.C., says it’s no longer all about votes to repeal, but about taking advantage of the current turmoil to demand delays and fixes and to offer an alternative.

Republicans in the House of Representatives have voted more than 40 times to repeal Obamacare, with Ellmers on board each time. But those bills went nowhere in the Senate. Republican demands to defund the law triggered the 16-day government shutdown.
