Republicans have shifted their strategy on ObamaCare.
Weeks ago, many Republicans said ObamaCareincluding Speaker John Boehner (Ohio)was too broken to fix. But now, the GOP is drafting legislation that aims to do just that.
The GOP wants to rebuild its political capital and public credibility by solving ObamaCares implementation problems. This pivot comes after Republicans took major hits in polls following the government shutdown.
The House this week will vote on a measure called, Keep Your Health Plan Act. It aims to do what the president promised years ago: If you like your health plan, you can stay on it. Senate Republicans, meanwhile, are pushing for a vote in their chamber. That measure has already attracted Democratic support.

PRIMARY ANY supporter of ObamaScare !!!
This is patently false, and everyone including the writer knows it.
It's now obvious to even the least astute observers that the insurance companies are complicit in this mess and want their government slave-politicians to save Obamacare and their investment.
Start calling by the millions. Ask for the political vermin of your choice.
Ask for Preibus and give him a dose.
These guys don’t know their basic Napoleon:

It's now obvious to even the least astute observers that the insurance companies are complicit in this mess and want their government slave-politicians to save Obamacare and their investment.Not to mention the rest of Big Business, which wants to detach themselves from their expensive employee health care plans.
Why play by the rules now? They can’t just issue another “update”?
I Hate F'ing Politicians.
Of course the GOPe is out to destroy Cruz, Lee and any other actual conservative who might repeal this atrocity. They’re all in on it, everyone’s getting a piece of the action.
America’s voters have one last chance in November 2014 to save the United States. I do think this is will be our last chance. If the Republican establishment is still running the party after the 2014 elections then our children will grow up in an impoverished, totalitarian country.
PRIMARY ANY Republican who supports BONEHEAD !!!
Holding Obama to his promise that if you like your health care you can keep it is a good idea. A lot better that boneheaded shutting down the government.
They will deserve the unwanted surprise at the primaries.
Note to RINO’s...start saving cardboard boxes
Yep. Millions of tax slaves in this country have no one in Washington to represent them. The Conservatives tried to speak up for the tax slaves, but the Republican RINOs attacked them for it. That's why the tax paying people don't vote Republican anymore. They didn't leave the Republican party. The Republican party left them.
The only way to keep your plan pre-Obamacare is to eliminate Obamacare. Every aspect of the law drives up costs, reduces choice and shifts decisions to the Federal government. Unless the fixes just gut the entire law, it isn't a fix at all.
Nota bene that the House bill is sponsored by über-RINO, Freddie Upton, who was a major force behind the light bulb ban. He's a scion of the Whirlpool fortune and is another millionaire whose healthcare and retirement we are all paying for. Sadly, this millionaire parasite will probably never be defeated in his MI district. The region has gotten too purple in recent years. His hellacious bill can, however, be defeated.
The only good fix for that monstrosity is REPEAL!
