President Barack Obama says hed be happy to get rid of Obamacareif Republicans can replace it with something better. Addressing his comments to Republicans, Obama said, If you can in fact put a plan together that is demonstrably better than what Obamacare is doing, I will publicly support repealing Obamacare and replacing it with your plan.
He went on to say something that is truly astonishing:
From the earliest negotiations in 2009 and 2010, I made clear to Republicans that if they had ideas that they could show would work better than the ideas we had thought of, I would be happy to incorporate them into the law ... And rather than offer ideas, what we got was a big no.

Obamacare remains highly controversial and faces ongoing legal and political challenges. Polls show that by a large margin Americans remain opposed to the healthcare law and seek to repeal and replace it. However, the question is: Replace it with what?
