The mistake they made was not going full national health care, taking the burden completely off employers... imho.

what governors do in their states, is up to the governor and the state legislature. and that is where state run health care should be done, at the state level not at the federal level.

ACA isn't failing, conservative principles are.

Republicans don't like universal health care, but Richard Nixon was all for it.
