POLITICO ARTICLE By JONATHAN C. BROOKSThe Affordable Care Act has become the poster child for government overreach.
But the GOP has not yet gotten the message.
The Affordable Care Amendment is a key part of the Affordable Care law, and the party is still trying to make it work, but it is not on the same page as the Obama administration on the issue of the mandate.
That is not an issue that will go away with the election of President Donald Trump, according to a new poll by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation.
The poll found that just 29 percent of voters want the Republican Party to embrace the mandate as part of its Obamacare replacement plan, while 70 percent want to see it repealed.
The poll found the same split among the party’s conservative base on the mandate, with 43 percent wanting to see the mandate repealed while 46 percent want it preserved.
The mandate is a significant part of Obamacare, but the administration is still pursuing its strategy to replace it with a more moderate form of the health care law, a goal the Republicans have yet to adopt.
Still, Republicans in Congress and the administration are working to change the mandate in a way that is likely to win them more support.
The Senate bill would not only repeal the mandate entirely, but also allow employers with 50 or more full-time employees to opt out of the requirement.
The measure is still being debated in the House, which is expected to vote on it in the coming weeks.
But the mandate is still a key issue for Republicans.
In the latest Kaiser poll, 56 percent of Republicans said that the mandate should be removed, while 35 percent said that it should remain.
And just 19 percent said they were more supportive of the ACA, a slight dip from the 52 percent who said the same in the last poll.
That would mean the mandate’s support is still at an all-time low, as nearly half of Republicans (47 percent) still say they disapprove of the law.
The Kaiser poll also found that while Republicans have become increasingly more supportive in the face of Obamacare’s difficulties, their support has been declining among women.
Just 41 percent of women now approve of how the ACA is going, while just 22 percent say they approve of its overall performance.
The numbers were identical in the poll that surveyed Republicans in February.
A big reason why Obamacare has not been popular among Republicans is that it requires people to buy insurance to access benefits.
Republicans have argued that that means the law is too expensive and that the law does not provide enough coverage for people to be able to afford the cost of health care.
Republicans argue that the ACA will help people get insurance for free.
But Republicans also argue that Obamacare has been successful because it has made insurance affordable for millions of Americans.
They also argue the law will make it easier for employers to retain and recruit employees.
That is what is being touted by Republican legislators who say the mandate will drive down premiums for companies with 50-plus full- and part-time workers.
Republicans have made it clear they want to move toward a more conservative approach to the ACA.
That has meant embracing the mandate repeal.
In a House GOP conference report, Republicans also called for making it easier to renew coverage.
But they have not gone that far, saying they are not yet ready to pass a bill to replace the mandate with a new approach.
In the meantime, the ACA continues to operate.
As the Kaiser poll found, the mandate remains a significant issue for the party, with 39 percent of the electorate saying it should be repealed while 48 percent say it should stay.
The issue is not even on the list of top concerns for voters in the survey.
But Democrats are more concerned about the issue than Republicans.
The Democratic National Committee has pushed back on some of the GOP rhetoric, telling the New York Times that they do not support repealing the mandate outright.
The DNC is still pushing for a single-payer system, but that is not a popular position among Republicans.
The GOP is also working to make health care more affordable for people by passing a bill that would make the individual mandate less costly.
The bill passed the House last week.
But even though the mandate has not gone away, Republicans are working on other strategies to change it, like changing how it is assessed.
For example, the Senate bill includes a provision that would assess the costs of a plan by looking at the premiums paid by the employer and the employer’s deductible.
That provision would not affect the mandate because it only penalizes employers who do not have to pay the mandate penalty.
Another strategy that the GOP might pursue is repealing the individual tax credit.
That credit is supposed to help lower- and middle-income Americans buy insurance.
But Republicans are pushing for an overhaul of the tax code that would eliminate it entirely.
In some ways, it seems like a strategy that Republicans might use in the future.
“The individual tax Credit is not going away,” said Republican Representative Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania.
“We want to make sure we have a fair tax code.”
