NATIONAL REVIEW autopsies the GOP's healthcare debacle.

The article is longish, and excellently written, but I disagree with the conclusion that Republicans now own healthcare and must do something. I'm sorry, but ObamaCare was broken before the election, and it's broken now: nothing's changed. The Republicans tried to fix it, and were obstructed in their efforts by the Democrats at every turn.

No, the Democrats own Obamacare. The Republicans should make that perfectly clear, and tell them "Now it's your turn. Propose legislation to fix ObamaCare and let the Republicans critique your legislation. You only need 12 Republicans in the Senate and 24 in the House to enact your legislation, assuming President Trump won't veto it."

Let them be condemned to their turn at being Sisyphus.
