Republicans bleed slow-moving ObamaCare: Column
USA Today

In 2012, opponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) lost both at the Supreme Court and the ballot box. As a result, many opponents vowed to engage in scorched-earth tactics defunding the law or shutting down government. Last week, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., announced where he stood with the release of a budget proposal he says would repeal ObamaCare.

The week before, however, the House of Representatives continued another approach, a back door that could slow or undermine the law’s implementation with small cuts unlikely to spark a confrontation.
