After campaigning for years on a plan of "repeal and replace Obamacare," Republicans finally have the means within their grasp to make much of that possible. They control the presidency, the House, and the Senate. The filibuster still poses some potential threats to their plans, but it's also within their means to abolish its widespread use in such a way that they could both repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with something of their own design.

What would that be? In contrast to what many say, there are Republican plans out there to consider. They're the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage.

This episode was adapted from a post I wrote for the JAMA Forum. Links to further reading and sources can be found there: https://newsatjama.jama.com/2016/12/06/jama-forum-a-look-at-republican-plans-for-replacing-obamacare/
