Trump to play hardball with Democrats on healthcare law

Erick Erickson:
According to people who attended a meeting with President Trump at the White House, the President says if the GOP healthcare plan dies, he intends to let Obamacare fail and blame the Democrats.

That is an excellent idea and it should be encouraged.

The Republicans, if they pass their Obamacare-lite swampcare plan, will own the healthcare issue and all its failures in the coming years. If they let Obamacare fail on its own, they will put pressure on Democrats and intransigent Republicans to come to the table and support real reforms.
This sounds like some "Art of the Deal" thinking on how to get to yes.  Trump is smarter than the Democrats give him credit for.
