Sen. Orrin Hatch says he has a backup plan ready for Obamacare in case the Supreme Court rules against the law this summer.
Reports The Hill:
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said he has been crafting a “solution for those Americans who may be affected” by the looming King v. Burwell case, which threatens to end healthcare subsidies for people living in 37 states.
“That solution will address immediate concerns and set the stage for a more permanent solution,” Hatch said during a speech at the Heritage Foundation, about one week before oral arguments in the case are set to begin. The senator said he would share details about his plan “in the coming days.”
Hatch’s announcement of an ObamaCare “backup plan” comes about two weeks after he and two other top Republicans unveiled what they called an ObamaCare replacement plan, though few conservatives rallied around it.
