Social Security was not supported by both parties initially and even when GW Bush took office a large faction in the Republican Party wanted to abolish it. It took several changes to get SS right, which is what would have happened with ACA if Republicans hadn't stonewalled. Never been a piece of major legislation that didn't have some flaws to be fixed in the next few sessions of Congress. Even the Constitution wouldn't have been adopted without the promise of the Bill of Rights to quickly follow. Difference today is the two parties spend more time hating each other than trying to accomplish something useful.
