The Obama administration has already delayed the mandate for a year and softened it further last month. Other White House allies have told TPM that they would support repealing the mandate if it was paid for. RAND Corp, a non-profit think tank, estimated full repeal would cost $149 billion in federal revenue in the next 10 years.

RAND also estimated that a one-year delay of the mandate would result in 300,000 more uninsured Americans.
