Would we be better off with ACA repeal with no replace?

The replacement bill is a mess. The Rs are not good at coming up with new ideas. They are the party of no or "we can't." The conservative mindset does not lend itself to innovative problem solving. The conservative people I've worked with are great about following procedures and holding fast to long established policies. They are not the people you pull into a room to build something new.

Since we know their new idea on healthcare sucks, would it be better if they just repealed ACA and we went back to healthcare pre-ACA?

I can tell you pre-ACA, my premiums still went up each year, so we are not going to save money.

But if we had to choose, I think a straight repeal is better than this piece of shit legislation they are proposing.
