Tom Cotton: '3-step' Obamacare repeal a myth


(WASHINGTON TIMES) Sen. Tom Cotton said Tuesday that it’s vital for Republicans to get legislation repealing Obamacare right on the first try because he doesn’t believe there are going to be three steps to the process, as proponents have outlined.

“There is no three-step plan. That is just political talk,” Mr. Cotton, Arkansas Republican, told radio host Hugh Hewitt.

Republicans say there’s only so much legislation they can get through the first time around under agreed-to budget rules. Step two would then involve regulatory changes, followed by more legislation.
