GOP Aiming To Dismantle Health Reform Law in 2012
Republican groups are making plans to dismantle the federal health reform law in the event that the GOP wins control of the Senate and White House in the 2012 elections. Advocates are urging the GOP presidential candidates to commit to fully repealing the overhaul, while conservative health care experts are developing an alternative to the law to deflect criticism that the GOP's reform plans would leave millions of U.S. residents without health coverage. At this point, none of the leading Republican candidates have offered a replacement health reform plan.
