Republicans Back Off Pledges to Repeal Obamacare

"In a significant development, GOP candidates have embraced a concept that was unthinkable a year ago: fixing President Obama's landmark law," The Hill reports.

"Others, meanwhile, have offered replacement healthcare plans."

"Polling shows a majority of people would rather Congress fix the law than scrap it entirely, which is clearly playing a role in the Republican pivot. Yet, offering to fix a law that is reviled by the GOP base is politically tricky. Some in Republican circles want the law to flop miserably, which would increase the chances of an eventual repeal."
