Why the ACA Repeal Was Stopped, at Least for Now

United_States_Capitol_west_front_edit2Last week, for the first time in quite a while, Congress was not trying to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

With the immediate emergency of Congressional repeal on (temporary?) hold, we thought it might be a good opportunity to share four recently published think pieces on why/how TrumpCare was stopped.

The first two links are to blog posts that focus on the machinations in Congress and the White House.  The second two focus on the huge role played by grassroots activists.   One of these articles was written after the dramatic vote in the Senate that stopped repeal (at least for now) and the other was written one week earlier.
