Republicans still believe they have a chance of repealing ObamaCare in 2017, despite the fact they have not been able to come up with an option. At the moment, some of the Republican members are beginning to understand that even if they cancel the Affordable Care Act and come up with an alternative, they still need to come up with a plan in order to achieve it.
The only difference between Republicans call for nullifying today, as opposed to calls for repeal between 2010 and 2016 is that ObamaCare exists.

GOP intends to come up with a plan that will help people in exchange plan and Medicaid. This development could make ObamaCare subsidies for buying insurance to go away and introduction of a new tax credit for poor people and those earning less will help in the transition. This same tax credit will be for people qualified for Medicaid under ObamaCare.
The best option to ObamaCare is to address the health financing crisis and provide wide health options and allow public to select among them, rather than ObamaCare policies that strictly describe insurance product, thus forcing the insurance agents to sell and people to purchase it.

And since those at power are not listening, that is how the Republicans hope to win the elections, and repeal ObamaCare. Many Republican members have voted and still continue to vote for repeal for all those
