If you can’t meet your ene­my head on, you run a flank­ing maneu­ver.  It has long been a giv­en that any attempt to upend Oba­macare would be dif­fi­cult through alter­nate leg­is­la­tion, which has been proven many times.  The option, of course, is to let it die through bureau­crat­ic iner­tia or sim­ply by skirt­ing the pri­ma­ry objec­tives of the law.  Now 12 cities, which include Bal­ti­more, Chica­go, Cincin­nati and Colum­bus are suing the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment, claim­ing the Trump admin­is­tra­tion “is uncon­sti­tu­tion­al­ly seek­ing to under­mine Oba­macare by fail­ing to faith­ful­ly exe­cute the health­care law (and that he is) wag­ing a relent­less cam­paign to sab­o­tage and, ulti­mate­ly, to nul­li­fy the law”  All true…and Trump makes no bones about it.  But final­ly folks are push­ing back.
