Dear Democrats –
You should put forward a plan to improve the ACA right now. It is the #1 issue on Americans’ minds and the Democrats are ceding it entirely to the Republicans.You can see that people liked your first try (the ACA).
Now that the people know that, why not say here’s how we think the ACA needs to be improved (medical device tax, cross state line competition (but with recipient’s home state regulatory jurisdiction), HSAs to cover deductibles). Dare Trump to come up with something better. Force him to admit that single payer is the only viable solution.
You get improved health insurance no matter what AND you might be able to snatch an issue completely away from the Republicans.
Don’t just sit there doing nothing. Like the Republicans during Obama. Just saying “no” to everything without providing an alternative or a voice or anything.
Not a dime’s worth of difference.
