When the Republicans used the ACA to try and embarrass President Obama, it was a good short term political strategy that helped them take control of Congress, but now they are painted into a corner with no good way out.

As I have written they are stuck in the quicksand of repeal, and the more “president” Trump beats the drums for full repeal instead of modification the more he strangles the GOP establishment, which might actually be his intent.
