    So he chose HeritageFoundationCare over Medicare and he's a posterboy for whining about HeritageFoundationCare?

    The problem for Republicans is they have no exit strategy

    What do they do with a crippled Obamacare? They have nothing to replace it with and are incapable of passing ANY healthcare plan

    What do they intend to accomplish?

    From a business standpoint, how does anyone think association plans or extending short-term medical policies will save anyone any money?

    Let's examine short term: If he changes you can purchase up to a year (which some do now) short-term does not cover pre-ex, but you won't be responsible for the mandate. Second, when millions of individuals opt for short-term rates will go sky high on these policies.

    Now the association plans I see this morning are not for an individual but rather a group of like small businesses. Hell, you have group insurance now for this and at least in my state the group rates have had very minimal rate increases the past two or 3 years and some have actually gone down a percent or two. Just don't see this working.

    I don't see Trumps end game in this

    What does he hope to accomplish?
    - Make people suffer as the health exchanges fold?
    - Bring Obamacare into a condition where it can't survive? Then what?

    Obamacare folds, Republicans don't have a plan to replace it. They have already shown that. They are incapable of reaching agreement among themselves, let alone Democrats

    Obamacare folds, the only option available is Medicare for all

    Well I hope you can afford coverage now, but I doubt it.

    Trump is done. Now all the Republicans from red states that with citizens that didn't want to lose their insurance are going to catch the brunt of anger from their constituents because of what Trump did. So they will be forced to act against him or risk losing their seat in the next election.
