    But, if the midterms swing the way it looks like they might, repeal will make it through both the House and Senate next year. Hell, if the Rs take the Senate, I predict a bill to repeal the ACA will the first thing acted upon on the first day of the new Congress.

    Unless the Republicans fail to win a veto-proof majority in the Senate, the ACA is toast. And we'll all be thrown back to the insurance industry wolves.

      houses Thorzdad. That's nearly 300 in the House and 67 in the Senate. there's no way the Republicans will get anywhere close to 60 in the Senate, let alone 67. and they don't have enough support to get to two-thirds in the House either. so they can pass as many bills regarding obamacare as they want. Obama will veto them, and they'll fail to override. and more people will keep getting insurance in the meantime.
