Missing the point dispute untruths about how ACA came about it contains numerous GOP health reform initiatives like mandate dates back to Reagan. The question is why so intent on repeal when real results show it's been generally good. Why look at soon to be enacted rules 2018 like 80/20 rule! 80% of premiums are to pay bills 20% overhead and HIPAA transaction sets reduced claim cost to about 3-5% in past most money went to executives who brought companies to be their own piggy bank. Forbes and Market watch had op-ed pieces thought reducing executive pay to 25% was good idea for all companies
