(Walla Walla Union Bulletin) With the news this week that more than 600,000 Washington residents have acquired new health care plans through the state exchange, U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, a stalwart opponent of the Affordable Care Act, said it’s unlikely the President Obama’s landmark program will be repealed.

“We need to look at reforming the exchanges,” the Eastern Washington Republican said Thursday.

McMorris Rodgers has been part of the Republican leadership in the House that has voted multiple times to repeal parts or all of the health care law. GOP members have said it is unworkable, will increase costs for some and force others into inadequate coverage or plans they don’t want.
