Support bold proposals that have broad popular support to draw distinctions between you and your opponent........... NOPE!
That was last year, specifically August of last year, which if you'll remember, was a moment of chagrin when Republicans left Washington for summer break after they could not muster sufficient votes to finally usher in TrumpCare, and could only barely break the mandate.
They were expecting to ride the wave of Trump's popularity into a full repudiation of the ACA and much more, and they failed.
Pelosi was "opting to preserve the Affordable Care Act" because she thought that there would still be some semblance of the Affordable Care Act to preserve.
She made the "hypocritical claim" earlier this year in which she said, “The comfort level with a broader base of the American people is not there yet. It doesn’t mean it couldn’t be", mostly because she still believed that there was a chance to preserve and save the ACA.
It is now fifteen months later and even the preexisting conditions rule is endangered. I daresay that Pelosi is not only aware of the increasing "comfort level", she is also aware of the new mood in the House.
Pulling up an article from what is, in political terms, "eons ago" isn't impressive.
