Trump is no more incoherent on health policy than any other Republican

It's amusing for the Times to quote all these Republican health care experts who characterize Trump's health care proposals "an incoherent mishmash that could jeopardize coverage for millions of newly insured people," But are the GOP experts' own ideas any better?

Since the ACA was passed, I haven't seen any coherent alternatives by the Republicans. They keep yelling "repeal and replace" without telling us "replace" means. (The one time they tried they hilariously proposed replacing Obamacare with Obamacare). Maybe the Times should do a similar article looking at Ted Cruz, John Kasich's or any other Republican politician's plan to see if it fares any better.
