Republicans nervous about Obamacare repeal

See this story, which leaked their closed door meeting on the topic. They've been trying to repeal Obamacare since its inception, blithely voting to do so dozens of times knowing Obama would veto it. But now that they have the complete power to do so they are having to face the consequences of that action. Twamp meanwhile is full steam ahead since he hasn't the intelligence to understand those consequences. Hence the GOP doesn't really want his advice on the matter and are trying to work around him.

The concerns include coming up with a replacement quickly that doesn't leave 20 million people without insurance, or insurance that costs more than Obamacare, or continuing pre-existing condition coverage. When confronted with finally coming up with a replacement they realize it's a yuuuge undertaking that requires governance skills, skills that have become dormant after 8 years of only practicing obstruction. They should be freaking out, because what they do will determine their re-election chances in 2018.
