Yes, NPR, Repealing Obamacare is Possible

NPR this morning ran a segment on the supposed difficulties that might be involved in repealing Obamacare. Folks who are interested in this question might want to check out a piece I wrote for NRO back in October 2011 laying out the steps involved in using a reconciliation bill in 2013 to repeal Obamacare (assuming Republicans keep control of the House, pick up a majority in the Senate, and take the White House). As the NPR reporter noted, some parts of Obamacare have already gone into effect, and repealers would have to decide which of those to keep intact. But the most significant and expensive components of the legislation certainly could and should be repealed in 2013.
