Trump promised to repeal & replace Obamacare with "something cheaper & better that covers everyone." Why did he fail so badly?

Trump's most consequential campaign promise, replacing Obamacare, was supposed to happen in the first 100 days, yet he never even released a PLAN for the replacement. No, the famous McCain vote was against repeal WITHOUT replacement.

Update:

@888: The "obstructionists" didn't block him from coming up with a plan.  Lack of a plan is the biggest part of his failure.  Since republicans controlled the House the Senate & the presidency, there was no impediment to issuing a plan.

Update 2:

@kitty: WRONG!!!  Obamacare was signed into law March 23, 2010.

Update 3:

@not: Obama reduced unemployment from a Bush high 10% down to 4.5%. Trump has pushed unemployment back up to 8.7%  Obama also cut deficits from a Bush high $1.4 trillion down to $585 billion; Trump doubled those deficits BEFORE the pandemic.

Update 4:

@rap: please explain!?  It's a law like any other law - passed by an act of Congress and can be repealed the same way.  The only thing that makes a law difficult to repeal is when people really LIKE the law!  The truth of the matter is the majority of citizens found the preferred Obamacare.

Update 5:

Alas alas @rap.  When challenged to defend his comment, @tap realized it was indefensible and deleted it.

    Yea he is failing just like Obama. Tough thing taking down an empire that makes so many people rich. Surely that is why the Democratic party dislikes Sanders, he would burn them all to get single payer thru.
