Top Republican Says They Will Have To Raise Taxes, Repealing Obamacare Harder Than They Thought

Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) says that Republicans will have no choice but to raise taxes if they continue on with their current plan to get rid of Obamacare – without offering an alternative plan.

“[It] would be best for our country to go ahead and replace it with something that works and repeal at the same time.”

At a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, he said that keeping subsidies in place for three years while getting rid of the Affordable Care Act’s revenue streams, will increase the annual budget deficit – and cost $116 billion.
