    and by dog-whistle -- I'm thinking of the Scott Walker strategy. They will, in some places, talk about "reforming" the ACA (or even "strengthening" it) to deal with some of its problem areas. (I have my own list; a Democratic list would include helping the people who were supposed to be in the Medicaid expansion and now can't get subsidies either.) "Income verification," "fraud and abuse," "IRS overreach," and of course "eliminate the penalty/individual mandate" and "no birth control or abortion." Only in ultra-safe places, and under their breath, will they whisper "repeal." Then the day after the election, the repeal bill is drafted or brought out of hiding.
