The healthcare issue right now is nothing but political foder. The Rs used it to avoid saying anything that might have been positive in the speech.
Think of it this way. Rs says we tried to kill 'obamacare' (a term which should be used but I digress) but the Ds over there won't let us since they rule the Senate. We kept our campaign promise! Knowing all along the repeal wasn't going to happen. Wasting time that could be used on real solvable issues to instead campaign for the next election. We've just let them spend more of our taxpayer money and again nothing happens.
