I think that's a BIT pessimistic. Obviously they didn't give two craps about this because of some invisible deadline that was PROBABLY due to Mr. President promising that immediately, day one, there would be a replace/repeal of Obamacare and ...this crap is literally all they could do given a month and a half. Now granted, Paul Ryan SAID Republicans already had a replacement plan ready to roll out before the election ever happened, but at least now everyone knows he's full of crap.
Given enough time and actual development, I can see something substantive happening during this four years. But this essentially gave them permission to put it on the back-burner indefinitely so I guess we'll see how it goes. Either way, colossal fudge-up from the GOP who said crap was finally going to get done. Never should have even hinted it was coming out this soon, just said "These things take time and effort, and we'll be working hard until it's done, and done right" and that would have satisfied JUST about everyone.
