President Trump has said the Democrats will take the fall politically if and when Obamacare “explodes.” But new polling shows that the public will hold Trump and the GOP accountable for failing to address problems in the marketplaces, not the Democrats. That means they’ll have to think twice about some of the moves they might make that could make the Affordable Care Acts problems worse.
But it’s more than that. Recent polls show that a growing number of Americans support the ACA and do not want it repealed. Like so many other things, many Americans do not understand Obamacare or what it does or not do. They are subject to political and commentary rhetoric both pro and con.
Republicans do not understand that and proceed at their peril.
