  •  And they can still campaign on improving the ACA. (0+ / 0-)

    It's not perfect by any stretch of the imagination. But it offers a multitude of improvements and benefits that were not available pre-ACA. They can tout the good parts of the law, all of which are very popular when boiled down to those individual features, without embracing everything and scaring those voters who have been lied to and deceived for so long.

    The GOP, on the other hand, have all gone on record as wanting to repeal the whole thing, including the popular parts. And now, with the living, breathing ACA turing out to be nothing like the terrible socialist monster that it's been promoted to be, campaigning on "Let's make it better," should go over much better than "Let's get rid of it."
