WE'LL REFORM IT, NOT REPEAL IT:

Republicans face divisions over ObamaCare repeal (ALEXANDER BOLTON, 11/13/16, The Hill)

But centrist Republicans are worried about millions of people being kicked off insurance rolls if ObamaCare is repealed. They're hoping to reach compromises with Democrats in hopes of transitioning as smoothly as possible away from the law. 

Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) told The Hill last year that she was "very concerned" about the 160,000 people who were then receiving health insurance in her state through the law's Medicaid expansion. 

Similarly, Sen. Roger Wicker (R), whose home state of Mississippi has the highest poverty rate in the nation, said he's worried about hurting people who received insurance for the first time. He hopes to work with Democrats to find a replacement program to limit the chances of a major disruption.
