Why on earth do you think they want it repealed?

For the same reasons they made it dysfunctional to start with: they work on incentive programs based on short term profits.

We wouldn't have scores of millions of uninsured Americans if the insurance industry wanted it any other way.

The ACA will, for the first time in my adult lifetime finally be based on the ability to competitively shop. The GOP House tried better than 40 times to repeal it in the last year alone. They wouldn't engage in that kind of repeated effort unless their paymasters wanted it repealed. Their paymasters in this case are the insurance industry, the same industry that fought Hillary 20 years ago, and fought so hard and spent so many millions to stop it from becoming law and who financed appeal to the supreme court level.

I may not know all the reasons, but actions speak very loudly.
