Affordable Care Act Repeal Is Back on the Agenda, Republicans Say

Robert Pear and Jeremy W. Peters - The New York Times:

It is not clear what political dynamics might have changed since Friday, when a coalition of hard-line conservatives and more moderate Republicans torpedoed legislation to repeal President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement. The replacement bill would still leave 24 million more Americans without insurance after a decade, a major worry for moderate Republicans.

They’ve been trying for over seven years, and can’t wait to pull the rug out from under millions of poor and under-employed Americans. Today's GOP is really despicable, isn’t it?

The thing is, repealing the ACA won’t do as so many claim: erase Barack Obama's signature legislation, and his legacy. He already accomplished these things. That can never be erased. It gives a good example, though, of how far the Party of Wealthy White Guys will go to screw with a black man.

They’ll even turn over their party’s future to Donald Trump.
