So, where does the GOP go now that the AHCA is effectively dead? Sen. Lindsey Graham has some thoughts:

It seems Trump’s already done that:

From the AP:

President Donald Trump says he would be willing to reopen negotiations for a health care bill with Democrats if the Affordable Care Act fails.

Trump told reporters Friday that he would be “open to it” if Democrats wanted to work on a bipartisan measure. He predicted the current law would soon collapse.

Here’s the thing, though: Would the Democrats honestly be open to “bargaining” with Trump and the GOP for a halfway-decent Obamacare replacement?
