@3 I don't think anybody of political consequence (i.e. votes that democrats might get) will think Trumpcare would have been better. Here's the first poll on AHCA public opinion that came up in google: http://www.newsmax.com/Politics/Rasmusse…
Note that this is a Rasmussen poll being frontpaged at Newsmax.
There was never any substantial support for this bill, or hope that it would be "better" than PP/ACA.
This was an unmitigated disaster for Paul Ryan's lifetime quest to undo the Great Society and New Deal. They' won't get another shot at Medicaid like this one for a generation. How it pans out for Trump, who knows. He's demonstrated, pretty decisively, that he is useless for legislative efforts. All that's left for him is to play golf, make a fool of himself at state dinners and rake in hundreds of millions in graft through his companies. The nation can endure that just fine.
