5. Waiting for the Republican "alternative" to ACA

is like Waiting for Godot. It ain't ever coming. Given that the ACA is already a fairly conservative program (which isn't to say that it isn't helpful- which is *really* what the Republicans are upset about), it seems like it is basically impossible for Republicans to come up with a viable plan that is further to the right- short of repealing it all together. They can spin their wheels on this as much as they want. Even if not everybody loves and adores it, most people have accepted ACA as the "new normal" and Republicans *should* move on and deal with it but we know that they probably won't, though, unless they get a trifecta and win the Presidency and keep Congress, there is no way that ACA will be replaced OR repealed. Our job now is to help ensure that it is preserved and enhanced.
