Top Republican Says Obamacare Is Here to Stay

"With the news this week that more than 600,000 Washington residents have acquired new health care plans through the state exchange, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) said it's unlikely the Affordable Care Act will be repealed," the Spokesman-Review reports.

Said McMorris Rodgers: "We need to look at reforming the exchanges."

"GOP members have said the law is unworkable, will increase costs for some and force others into inadequate coverage or plans they don't want. McMorris Rodgers continued those criticisms... but said the framework established by the law likely will persist and reforms should take place within its structure."
