The most popular ideas each party has are not actually intended to be implemented. They are the carrot on a string on a stick to goad the horse (voters) to move in the direction the party wishes them to go.

The Democratic Party, for example, has a superpopular idea in ending pre-existing condition exclusions. That does not require a mammoth bill to pass and it appeals to everyone except insurance company executives. It will sail through the Senate on its own. However, the politicians want pass the special interest crap buried in the thousands of pages of the bill because that's where their career incentives are.

Same thing for the GOP, just different set of fig leaves.
