Obamacare uprooted the entire market to address a comparatively small universe of truly uninsurable patients. A better reform would use a more specialized approach.
Moderates assumed that ‘replacing’ Obamacare meant Republican lawmakers had embraced the mantra of universal health coverage, and would maintain most of the benefits.
