For the "some problems" that it solves, does it offer the best solution?
If not, is it more likely that (a) a better solution will be pursued, or (b) there will be a sense of "meh, good enough"?
It's more likely that a better solution will be worked out if we leave the ACA in place. Incremental improvements happen in steps. Repealing the ACA makes it less likely that an ideal solution will be put into place.
Let me ask you this, regardless of whether you're willing to acknowledge it can or will happen:
If, three years from now, millions of Americans have lost their employee-subsidized healthcare and end up on the exchanges with higher out-of-pocket costs and less benefits, will you think it was good that the ACA was left in place?
