7. These guys are slow learners.....

What they should have learned from the most recent drama is that the Democratically-controlled Senate and the White House are not going to negotiate away the ACA or accept any other extreme measures, period.

So it will end the same way in 2014 as it ended now. His opportunity to make changes in the budget is to lobby the House representatives that will go to conference with the Senate.

The GOP can forget repealing the ACA. They have tried 40+ times at a cost of $55M while knowing the Senate would not take up the bill and the President would veto with no chance of a 2/3 majority override.

If they want to introduce changes to improve the ACA that is fair game but must know that some basic principles are not open for discussion. Those include the individual mandate, the mandatory minimum patient care requirement, the provisions related to annual or lifetime caps, pre-existing conditions and adult children coverage to age 26.
