They didn't pass a UHC bill because this isn't part of the GOP plateform. Republicans tend to expect people to take care of their own. Repubs don't believe in big government or a nanny state. She is just saying that, if there is to be a bill, the repubs. should have seized the opportunity then. It would have been the same.
