    It's all tax cuts, but wait until the CBO score.  And in passing this - they're up to scrutiny to what this does and doesn't do.  They can't just be "Obamacare is bad" and vote against it 42 times, they'll have to defend this bill and how it compares to the ACA.

      The House simply doesn't care about anything else than pandering to the base, and the base wants to focus on abortion and guns.   The core GOP voter doesn't want a new debate about health insurance -- they'd rather ignore the issue of health care completely and hope it goes away.    

      This was the GOP strategy in 1993 and 1994 with Hillarycare.     There is a reason that Dole didn't run on the "Republican plan for health care" in 1996.    The GOP wanted to pretend the issue would burn itself out by ignoring it.   They still do.
