Republicans and Obamacare

It seems to me that for as long as I have been in this country, Republicans have never wanted to improve health care or its coverage as an effort to benefit active Americans.

It took the Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare) to get them infuriated about the idea and, from day one, promising to repeal (and not replace) the law.

So even with seven years to come up with a better idea, they did not, simply because enhancing that policy was never on their agenda.

It only took Trump's campaign promises to force them into concocting a replacement plan that was a disaster because they had never thought through the idea before and had no interest for it. They just were forced by Donald Trump to make something up.

At that point, only Democrats can do something about fixing the ACA and it will require a strong majority in Congress...
