Avik Roy on the Future Of Obamacare

by Dimitrios Halikias

NRO Columnist Avik Roy spoke today on MSNBC to discuss how Republicans should deal with Obamacare going forward.

He explained that many Republicans are resisting the movement led by Senator Mike Lee to defund Obamacare now with the threat of shutting down the government. Instead, Roy argued that Republicans should focus on real healthcare reform alternatives, rather than on simply repealing the bill, saying that: “Republicans will fail to repeal the law if they don’t have a compelling replacement strategy.”

Roy won faint praise from liberal host, Ari Melber, who told Roy: “It’s a low bar, but I will say I’ve always thought you were actually better at explaining some of the policy on this than Mitt Romney was.”
