    Trumpcare aside, Trump and Congress have done enough stupid, and in Trump's case, shady stuff that the Dems should come out of the woodwork for the next election.

    This x100.

    Part of me was hoping it would go through for this reason alone. The only way to make the white working poor that voted for Mango Mussolini stop voting against their own interests is to make them feel the pain. Loss of health benefits would have accomplished that. Economic policy doesn't work because it is too nuanced and easy for the demagogues to spin and blame it all on some liberal boogey man.

    So Trump was right all along I guess.

    We all agree that the best thing for Republicans is really to let ObamaCare go into a death spiral.

    Absolutely. Let them die on that hill. No pun intended.

    Not exactly. The POT would be left holding the bag, a fearful thought for candidates for all but the safest seats.

    Probably not. Trump goes out and says the Dems wouldn't join us. It's their fault the sh!t hit the fan.

    Time will tell, assuming Trump still is around. If Pence takes over all equations will have to be re-written; that is to say, all guesses will have to be made all over again.

    Various predictions as to how ACA costs will increase. But as the PIP (Party In Power) its hard to see how the GOP won't have accountability. "why haven't they fixed it yet"?
    Obama took a lot of grief for Iraq, but it wasn't his idea. He got stuck with it though.
