Obamacare repeal? Nah, we'll wait

Clearly it was a pandering lie when Donald Trump adopted the "repeal Obamacare" hypnotic chant that has mesmerized so many of the Republican voters.  He never had a plan to replace it;  no Republicans have a plan to replace it;  and this truth is slowly becoming increasingly apparent.

But it's eventually going to get them into trouble, I think.

This supposition is supported by a column in the Washington Post:

What are Republicans going to do about Obamacare?  ' No idea '. 

And they'd better watch out, because the situation could get out of hand:

"What Republicans don’t seem to have come to terms with is that, as a political matter, they already will be held responsible for whatever happens to health-care markets, even if they don’t introduce a replacement soon. An executive order Trump signed relaxing enforcement of Obamacare, and the constant talk of repeal, have injected a debilitating uncertainty into the health-care market — essentially beginning the unraveling of Obamacare with nothing to replace it."
While I don't want anyone to lose insurance, exposing this major lie by Trump and the Republicans would be flat-out great.
