    Not to be a downer but seriously, has the GOP suddenly changed and now they are willing to vote to try to make the ACA workable?  They almost destroyed the credit of the country a month ago trying to destroy the entire bill.  Anything that happens is going to have to be administrative.  And expanding an "entitlement" doesn't really seem to be a direction they are interesting in going in the first place.

    •  They wouldn't, but not the point (5+ / 0-)

      The point is to get it into the conversation.

      Politics may be the art of the possible, but policy is the art of creating that possibility.

        Democrats need to start getting more into the conversation whether they lose or not.  But as far as actually fixing the ACA that's going to have to be done administratively for now.
