6. Introducing well crafted, legislation that solves a major social problem isn't grandstanding.

It's doing the job of a legislator.

You say that "I think we all know that the ACA was crafted carefully", and I agree that is true; but not in the way you mean it.
It was an act of cobbling together a known failure of a Frankenstein policy monster that was designed to primarily support about 6 major corporate interest groups. We KNOW what works and what doesn't. I understand the political excuses that were exploited, but as Trump's election demonstrates, the halfway nature of the policy was a betrayal of the people themselves. That is not only political suicide, but a form of actual, real murder of the weakest and most vulnerable among us.
