One would think not, judging from the fund-raising e-mails I recently received from the Heritage Foundation. Here is language from one of the e-mails:

Reversing Obamacare is not easy. The law itself must be repealed in its entirety. Thousands upon thousands of pages of regulations must be canceled and rewritten. New policies need to be crafted, policies that advance free enterprise and not big government. It’s going to take top experts, scholars, and researchers to formulate this alternative.

That’s where the Heritage Foundation comes in.

Heritage has a complete, detailed plan to repeal Obamacare immediately.Already, some of our foremost scholars and experts (including our founder Ed Feulner) are working as part of the Trump transition team to pave the way for a conservative administration. We stand ready to educate and advise key presidential and congressional players on how to successfully repeal and replace Obamacare.

Let me help the Republicans with legislation to repeal Obamacare: “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PL 111-148, 124 Stat. 119 through 124 Stat. 1025) is hereby repealed.” Nothing needs to be rewritten or replaced. Just repeal it. It is that simple. And you Republicans can do it without me or anyone else donating to the Heritage Foundation.
