Many Americans still don't understand the basics of the ACA. Jonathan Bernstein wonders if Republican congressmen are any better informed:

What I'd love to know? How many Members of the House Republican Conference have any idea at all of what ACA — what they call "Obamacare" — actually consists of. I don't mean the details; I mean a broad outline: exchanges, subsidies. Hey, maybe they really are reasonably well-informed; just because politicians use over-the-top or focus-group-tested rhetoric certainly doesn't prove that they really believe that junk. But I'd love to know.
