Given that we have YET to see a republican health care bill that can even get everyone on board in their own party, let alone have a chance to be bi-partisan, I believe attacking and doing all they can to dismantle, obstruct and destroy the ACA will come back to bite them in the butt big time in the 2018 elections. If they had something better to offer or at least some IDEAS that they could share with the dems that could possibly lead to some kind of deal down the line there would be a glimmer of hope but cutting the subsidies right now is just cruel and dangerous to those who need them the most, and will drive up costs in the short term for all of us. "Like the Republicans who came before him, Trump is trying to gain leverage by sabotaging the governance of the country; unlike the Republicans who came before him, Trump is responsible for the governance of the country, and so he is sabotaging himself. This would all be quite comic if not for the millions of people who badly need decent health insurance and are going to suffer as Trump teaches himself this lesson."
