  • NO KICKING THE CAN: Tom Cotton on Obamacare.
John Harwood on Twitter:

Tom Cotton tells @chucktodd he doesn't want to vote for O-care repeal w/out specifying replacement plan. calls repeal/delay "kick the can"
That sounds principled. And cruel. Which would be about right for Tom Cotton. But Cotton has also been quoted as saying he doesn't want anyone to lose coverage. A replacement plan that really achieves that — not one that gives people the option to purchase expensive, crappy coverage and assesses no penalty for failure to buy — won't save any money.

Again. Talk is cheap.
