Absolutely essential, and thank God.  Ignore for now whether it will work:  the Republican leadership had to show the country — 2/3 of which thinks Obamacare will make health care worse — they meant what they promised when they ran.  They also had to show the Republicans and conservatives who voted for them that they could be trusted.

Making this vote stick will be hard.  But Ted Cruz and company have a plan.  It looks pretty good.  And even if they fail, it won’t be because they didn’t try, and any Republicans who defect (only one so far) will be marked for primary challenges.

It’s about time.
