Let it die? How the GOP could just wait for Obamacare to ‘collapse.’ I can understand not wanting to take ownership of the problem. Obamacare sign-ups fall below expectations, last year's levels. You can only fool so many people for so long. More analysis at Hot Air's ObamaCare enrollments miss the mark again — for the last time? The Washington Times thinks Democrats need to help fix the Disastercare they created. I wouldn't hold my breath. Real Clear Politics believes Dems See Trumpcare Fallout as 2018 Opportunity. I have no doubt they'll muck it up as much as possible for political gain. Politico whines tha Trump May Be Sabotaging Obamacare while Dana Milbank rages that Obamacare isn’t failing. It’s being destroyed by Republicans. Well, they didn't like the concept, and they didn't vote for it, either. According to the New York Times Obamacare Isn’t in a ‘Death Spiral.’ (Its Replacement Probably Won’t Be Either.) Hot Air swears Politico’s story on Trump sabotaging Obamacare is a mess. Sanders Can’t Say Where He Gets His Info That ‘Thousands Will Die’ if Obamacare Is Repealed. Out of his ass, of course. Why should he be different than any other politician?
By way of Wombat-socho's "In The Mailbox: 03.16.17" Megan McArdle has Obamacare Isn't Going to Fix Itself
The current version of the Republican bill may not be better than the status quo. But the status quo is not good. And everyone, Democrat and Republican, had better start thinking now about how far they’re willing to go to fix it.Read the whole thing.
And in actual news, Obamacare replacement bill passes Budget Committee by one vote. It lost three Republicans. Not a sign of overwhelming support.
