On each of those fronts, we were painfully correct in our predictions. Since ObamaCare was signed into law more than 7 years ago, Americans have struggled to deal with the burdens of ObamaCare, and that is why we are still working to repeal this awful law. The Senate is expected to put forth its repeal bill in the next few weeks. Now is our ...
