Ron Brownstein is surprised:
In ABC/WP 78% (!) of aged 50-64 oppose ending nationwide mandate for covering pre-existing conditions #AHCA https://t.co/B7eYpwiaGI via @ABC

This is pretty much what I’d expect. After all, it’s people aged 50-64 who mostly have pre-existing conditions.
This remains the Achilles’ heel of the repeal movement. Once you’ve agreed to keep Obamacare’s pre-existing conditions policy, the rest of Obamacare—or something pretty similar—is inevitable. This is why the repeal-and-replace movement is having such a tough time.
