I’m not sure this is one of the times where leadership should take the blame. The President made a campaign promise that the core regs of the ACA (can’t be turned down or cancelled, on your parents plan to 26, and preexisting conditions) would stay in place. Seems the Freedom Caucus was demanding that those regs be killed.

That put the AHCA in an impossible place.
