Democrats won't let Trump "Explode" ACA!!!

Trump's tantrum over his failure to pass his TrumpCare health plan may be over, but Democrats aren't waiting around to find out.

Democrats are attacking Trump for saying he would let the ACA blowup/fold. And they're not going to let up.

With Republicans in retreat from their aborted effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Democrats are now in hot pursuit, demanding that the administration cease any effort to “explode” the health care law … proposing tweaks to the ACA and calling on GOP colleagues to put forward their ideas … extending subsidies for people who have higher incomes but don’t qualify for tax credits; restoring risk corridors; enabling the health and human services secretary to negotiate lower prescription drug prices; fixing the individual market; and extending reinsurance.

The most aggressive proposal so far has come from Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Keith Ellison. They’re calling for party members to embrace a Medicare For All program.
The researchers at The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities aren't going to let Trump undermine the ACA without keeping the public informed:
Sabotage Watch: Tracking Efforts to Undermine the ACA: Following the failed Republican attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), President Trump said that, politically, the best thing to do would be to let the ACA “explode.”
Below is a gif that shows what happened to ACA signups that were well ahead of last years signups when Trump pulled the ACA signup ads (click to enlarge):
