GOP Sen. Rob Portman: Obamacare Repeal-Only Bill Would ‘Add To More Uncertainty’





Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) on Tuesday expressed concern over the idea of a repeal-only healthcare bill, warning his Republican colleagues that a bill that repeals Obamacare without replacement “will add to more uncertainty,” leading to even higher premiums.

“I have to look and see what the so-called repeal bill entails, but if it is a bill that simply repeals, I believe that will add to more uncertainty,” Portman told reporters. “And the potential for Ohioans to pay even higher premiums, higher deductibles.”

Portman said he would look for an analysis from the Congressional Budget Office on a bill repealing Obamacare.

“To see what it involves in terms of not just premiums and deductibles, but coverage,” he said.



“So, I’ll take a look at it, but I’m concerned about something that would simply repeal and its impact on costs and choices and healthcare.”
