Days after the Republicans took control of the House and added seats in the Senate, Americans are wondering what is going to happen to Obama’s Healthcare Reform Bill. The Republicans have long stated that they would seek to repeal the bill but because they do not control both the House and the Senate, it is not likely that they will be able to successfully achieve that goal.

A more likely goal, or tactic, would be the Republicans making changes to the Healthcare Reform Bill. It is not clear at this time what changes would be made – though one possible change would be addressing malpractice reform – but be sure there would be changes of a moderate nature. Another possible tactic that has been widely reported is the GOP blocking funds to carry out the law; but if not implemented correctly, this tactic could result in voter anger toward the GOP.

Whichever strategy the GOP uses, it is likely that the Healthcare Reform Bill will be changed, not repealed.
