I agree that Obamacare is far from perfect, and there are absolutely things about it that could and should be improved.

The two AHCA Trumpcare replacements that have been proposed so far, however, are even worse.

It’s also worth noting that some of the insurance companies who claimed to be so hurt by Obamacare were actually lying, and that Trump’s attacks on Obamacare have caused even more damage to the stability of the health insurance system.

Again, none of this is to say that Obamacare is perfect; in fact, far from. But this is further proof of the absurdity of your hyper-partisan binary claims. The greatest flaws in the Obamacare system as it stands are corporate greed and the GOP’s emotional need to stake their claim on healthcare. It’s a disaster because insurance companies want to screw people over more, and because the GOP doesn’t want it to succeed.
