GOP's Deus Ex machina ObamaCare Fix Can't Be REPEAL!

ObamaCare is probably going to collapse under the weight of its own stupidity, which means that eventually something wonderful is going to happen to the GOP: The American people are going to turn to us for a solution.

The question is, will we have one?

REPEAL! and "We told you so!" is not a plan. Too much of the toothpaste is already out of the tube. 

No matter how big ObamaCare's flaming ball of fail is, we now live in a world where people cannot be turned down for insurance over a pre-existing conditions (a good thing if managed properly), young adults can stay on their parents insurance until they are 26 , and a few million people who did not have insurance before ObamaCare now will, mainly through the Medicaid expansion, but also thanks to the subsidies and other goodies.

There is just no way the media and Democrats will allow the GOP to repeal these people into the ranks of the uninsured again.

I am not an insurance or policy expert, but it doesn't take a genius to see that a real opportunity is about to fall into the lap of the GOP.

If Republicans can come up with a fix that makes the millions of ObamaCare's losers somewhat whole again (or at least creates a sense of stability) without hurting the much-fewer millions who are likely to benefit from ObamaCare, they can be the heroes in this mess who had nothing to do with creating it, fought against it every step of the way, and made things right.

Let's just hope they are already working on Deus-ex-machinaCare.
