    You misunderstand. Not having a consensus GOP Healthcare plan ready for January/February 2017 was the malpractice. A complete failure of leadership and membership both.

    Seems like I remember a certain poster guaranteeing they did have a plan - lots of plans - ready to go before the election!!

    The malpractice started with demonizing parts of the ACA that are necessary to any attempt to fix the problems with our healthcare system. Once they did that, it was no surprise that any of their "solutions" wouldn't work. Everyone who knew anything about healthcare had the GOP's fundamental lie about "repeal and replace" figured out years ago, and they were correct. The GOP is incapable of proposing a "replace" plan that doesn't 1) make the situation worse or 2) retains the core elements of ACA, and therefore isn't really a "replace" at all but changes the GOP has opposed for years now.

    And they did, and I linked them ad nauseum. That they never sat their caucus down after the election to put them together into a consensus...

    Yeesh.

    And like we said at that time, repeatedly, none of those "plans" were worth the paper they were printed on. And we were correct. We knew none of those plans would serve as an adequate "replace" for the reasons you clipped from my comment and ignored. Don't know why you do that, but I'll repeat it here:
