Waal, the ACA is symbolic.

It is the signature accomplishment of a black Democratic president.

The Scorched earth policy of the Repubs requires that it be eliminated.

They promised that they would overturn this hated plan. They propagandized it and pushed the hatred until their base will now be so disappointed if any of it left standing.

You gotta do what you gotta do.

Don Quixote comes to mind.

It looks like the replacement is dead in the water as it has been met with wide spread rejection from both sides of the aisle, and including the AMA and AARP. The problem is the GOP is not the place to go to find a better alternative. The GOP only does a few things well. That's cut taxes for the rich and to eliminate democratic inspired legislation of all kinds. They do not do social issues of any kind that favor ordinary people. Yet, they have an intellectual faction that has magically justified their activities as better for ordinary working families. It's an odd thing, they believe what they do is helpful but the results are catastrophic. This is what happens when science, facts, and research are replaced with the bible, conspiracies, and gut feelings.
