Politico is in the tank for Dems, and yet some conservatives are just taking Politico's word about the GOP keeping parts of ObamaCare.—

What part of “UNDO OBAMACARE” don’t the Beltway Republican leaders understand? Yes, this is a Politico story. But 1) Republican crapweasels leak to Politico all the time; and 2) grass-roots activists on the Right have been let down and kicked down by the Beltway GOP leadership enough times to be justifiably worried.
If the law is partially or fully overturned they’ll draw up bills to keep the popular, consumer-friendly portions in place — like allowing adult children to remain on parents’ health care plans until age 26, and forcing insurance companies to provide coverage for people with pre-existing conditions. Ripping these provisions from law is too politically risky, Republicans say.
