Is this seriously what the Republicans wanted re the ACA repeal?

It blows my mind what the Republicans voted to repeal with regards to the ACA - i.e. all of it, even the popular provisions like insurance companies having to take you even with a pre-existing condition and keeping your kids on your insurance plan until they are 26.

Please click the link below to the article that lays out everything they voted for repealing.

3. The rights unwarranted opposition to the ACA is partisan,

having more to do with the president who signed the Act into law rather than its merits.

6. Certain advantages to Republicans to repeal the entire ACA.

1. It erases the labels ACA and ObamaCare.
2. It eliminates conflicts with their new sections (if any) and the old ACA.
3. If they decide to do nothing, then their work is finished on healthcare.

Advantages to DEMs: They have nothing, so can they write a bill in several months without DEM help? No.

14. Well, hopefully any advantage

they may think they have, or they may get, will be taken away from the in the midterms by those people who will be without insurance soon...one can only hope.

7. They are agents of evil

And one day they will get a big blowback for their actions. Inflicting pain on innocent people for politicial gain is plain evil and stupid.

I remember another country that had a pushback from people they screwed over - France

13. Unfortunately

I don't think any states here use the guillotine for capitol punishment. I can just hear Trump "Let them eat Taco Salad...from Trump Tower!"
