GOP original sins

Republican efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) have seemingly entered a final death spiral.

The whole undertaking has been perhaps the most massive legislative embarrassment in history, inflicting untold damage on the Republican Party, President Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). …

I can’t find a single piece of legislation that’s been as poorly received as the GOP’s health reform efforts. Many more Americans wanted to bail out Wall Street banks than to adopt Republican health plans.

Perhaps most embarrassing internally, Republicans achieved what Democrats never could — they made ObamaCare popular. CONT.
