Email #3, Subject: an immediate delay?

I just read over the weekend that you’re planning on “repealing but delaying” Obamacare? What does that mean? How can you vote to repeal something while at the same moment vote not to repeal it? I heard the “delay” will be several years? How’s that different from NOT repealing it? And yet I heard the repeal will be “immediate,” meaning, I guess, the vote to repeal it will be immediate but not the actual repealing? How is that anything but complete doubletalk? Would you please clearly and directly explain your position on Obamacare?
