Trump supports, then pulls support all in about 24 hours. This is a president who leads by information from whoever whispers sweet nothings into his ear.

The only people who say otherwise are Republicans who are doing everything they can to destabilize the market by hacking at the ACA and attempting to blame it on the ACA.
...
This is a party that has no solutions, never has had them, and attempts to make it seem like they have something in their back pocket and just need a repeal to pull it out.

Ssh. Packman is listening. If Drump said 6 pencils and 3pencils would be 12 pencils, Packman would spend 3days looking up his ass for the other 3 pencils.
