Why Ted Cruz should offer an ACA replacement plan

Though Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has been clear about his desire to repeal the Affordable Care Act, he hasn't offered many details about what his replacement plan would look like, according to Politico. Fleshing out those details could help the Texas senator in the winner-take-all primary in Wisconsin, as both the insurance and healthcare industries are powerful in the state and it's home to Gov. Scott Walker, who himself created an ACA replacement plan while running for president. Detailing an ACA replacement plan--which House Speaker Paul Ryan has urged his party do to--also could help Cruz differentiate himself from rival Donald Trump, whose own healthcare plan has drawn criticism from policy experts who say it lacks substance. Article
