A growing number of Republicans are balking at the prospect of repealing the ACA so quickly without a firm plan to replace it. Now with the Senate on a path to eliminate the ACA, some Republicans are worried about the political fallout and uncertainty of starting to roll back the law without knowing how the process will end. Conversations with Republican senators and a review of their statements show that nearly a dozen have publicly expressed some level of concern about repealing the law without a replacement. “There are a lot of people that have concerns about doing a repeal with no replacement or at least some guidance on replacement,” said Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) who has co-sponsored language to delay the nonbinding deadline for repeal legislation until March 3. “The train leaving the station this week is not a big event, it’s when the train pulls back into the station that’s the big event,” Corker explained.
