Not only did they do nothing about Obamacare, the GOP when in control of both houses of the legislature did nothing period. There was little in the way of substantive legislation passed in that entire era, beyond a half-hearted and temporary tax cut, and sanctions on Russia (the only near-unanimous legislation in recent times). Trump as president did everything he could to ensure that the untenable Everything Bubble went on. In addition, he and the entire GOP looked the other way while domestic surveillance and censorship expanded, and then made excuses -- I interpret this as tacit support for all of that stuff. The best way to regard the situation is that, if there is a nationalist-populist rebellion against the political system of the USA still ongoing, the GOP is a declared enemy of that rebellion and wants more than anything for it to go away. Those of us who want reforms are foolish to trust people who show by their actions everyday that they are against them.
