    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.

    why do it at all, thats my question. i mean, really. why? all that work destroyed, so what? they can erase barack obama?? why not build on what we have? if republicans had not worked to ruin aca, many of these problems would have never been problems in the first place. its completely political in my view, and they are playing politics with peoples lives. all these gvt officials about that?  isnt that tax-payer funded, too?

      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
