If you get into a auto accident and wind up going to the ER or staying in a hospital for a few days, it's entirely possible that your insurance might not cover the cost of your stay (which can soar into the tens of thousands) if the effort to erase those benefits proves successful. They call it repeal and replace. They're going to vote against it.

"We never ran on replacement of Obamacare light: Of making the entitlement subsidies permanent, keeping the taxes, keeping the Medicaid expansion. We're going to have more plans being offered, more choice and competition". None of us did.

Faced with growing discontent within his own party-including the fever swamps of Breitbart, where the president's most ardent fans can't decide whether "Ryancare" is "Obamacare 2.0" or doesn't cover enough people, two positions that appear to be in conflict-Trump scrambled onto Tucker Carlson's prime-time Fox News show on Wednesday night to defend his approach and, perhaps accidentally, display a rare bit of humility.
