Both Cruz and Tillis have repeatedly voted to repeal the ACA, including for the controversial 2017 repeal legislation.
However, in recent months, Republicans have been increasingly on the defensive as Democrats slam them for trying to undo the health care law, whose provisions are wildly popular with voters — spurred on by the upcoming Supreme Court fight to confirm Amy Coney Barrett, who has written law articles critical of previous court decisions upholding the law. Tillis is uniquely vulnerable to the criticism, as he is locked in a tight re-election battle.
Democrats have their own competing and stronger legislation to protect the coverage, which will be voted on in coming days.
I still think the main reason for the Republicans trying to remove provisions in the ACA is due to their effect on large religious based healthcare companies. Hugs
