Trump shows flexibility on repealing hated Obamacare
Trump is trying to blow up the strategy he pushed for to end ObamacareI sometimes like to write headlines the media would write if Trump were a liberal Democrat. In fact, Trump is showing more flexibility than Obama did in pushing Obamacare and he is giving Congress room to come up with an acceptable deal.
The president tweeted that the Senate should vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act without a replacement lined up, but that tactic is precisely what he had persuaded GOP leaders not to use earlier this year. House Speaker Paul Ryan, who had urged an incremental change, has now joined in calling for a return to a two-step process of repealing first.
