    To our hospital talking about the changes in health care over the coming decade.  After showing us many charts illustrating the economic crisis looming upon us in health care, he stated that the Repubs really don't want to repeal the ACA at all.   They just want to get publicity and credit for voting to repeal it.  If they really did repeal it, they would be making themselves responsible for the budgetary disaster as costs for Medicare and Medicaid continue to skyrocket.  The trajectory that existed before the law passed is obviously doom ward bound.  ACA doesn't fix all but it keeps us able to keep functioning as we try to get to the next step.
