Following the news on healthcare, its interesting that Democrats and far right republicans are both working to defeat the current healthcare bill, and their combined efforts might succeed.
- Democrats want to improve the current system, so they are fighting all efforts to replace it.
- Far Right Republicans don't like the current bill because it makes too many compromises and will not settle for anything other that total repeal of the ACA.
If there is a stalemate, the danger is that the current healthcare bill will be striped down to simply repealing the ACA by the end of 2019. This gives them two years to replace it. However, the risk with that approach would be that democrats gain enough control and are able to replace it with ACA 2.0.
