This was always the plan for Obamacare

Washington ExaminerOther Republicans, however, have argued that now that Obamacare is in place, it's unrealistic to think Republicans could scrap Obamacare and not have an answer for the millions of beneficiaries who would lose insurance coverage as a result. This dynamic has received added attention due to the Supreme Court case challenging the legality of subsidies offered on federal health insurance exchanges, which is expected to be decided in June and would mean millions of people in up to 37 states losing subsidies.

The Democrats would offer up a plan that would fail, but would shift the perceived center of the debate to the left and gain "moderate" Republican support for preserving the entitlements, just like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, the Earned Income Tax Credit, and every other fucking entitlement program ever. Then, when Obamacare did finally fail, the Democrats would claim that their "free market" plan wasn't socialist enough and push for single payer. Unable to face the possibility of taking candy from voters, moderate Republicans would passively go along with the new plan.

And it is working exactly as intended.
