Is it fair that the new Congress is taking its time to fashion the "repeal-and-replace" legislation?

If we compare the time the last administration's Congress took to "rush" through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) known popularly as "Obamacare", is it any wonder that in just two months of a new Congress and administration the details are still being worked out as to how best to replace that health program with one that can better meet the needs of today's Americans? Present criticism concerns what is still being discussed, with nothing finalized. It seems like a case of "the watched pot never boils." Taking time before laws become permanent is an approach that could have avoided the redo.

    Because it doesn't work. For ex. many states have seen their insurance providers leave the state, and be left with a single insurer. That is called a monopoly. We should all be given something similar to FEHB Fed Employees Health Benefits Program
