Obamacare is better than the status quo for millions of people like my uncle who can't get private insurance. Republicans ONLY answer is the status quo. Well at least now that they turned on their own idea when it became Obamacare. I guess they learned their lesson to never actually propose new ideas wrt to healthcare - democrats might just take them up on it.
No, I don't know that it's true that none of them would trade their health system for ours.

I also reject the idea that Republicans don't have any answers to the status quo. They aren't in much of a position to focus their myriad answers into a single, unified proposal like the democrats were when they controlled WH, Senate and House, but that's a different story.

Pre-Obamacare status quo was universal healthcare, btw, so I'm not sure what your graphic is supposed to be about.
