GOP and Obamacare
“I understand the difficulty of repealing a welfare entitlement program. I don’t think it’s ever been done. Yet I foolishly believed the Republicans promising to do away with Obamacare. Shame on them and shame on me. There is plenty of shame to go around. Of shame there is no shortage.”
If shame attaches to Republicans, what about the Democrats? They are, as always, shameless. They celebrate the debacle. Yet the status of Obamacare is inherently unstable. The Hill’s Peter Sullivan and Jesse Heilmann argue that the instability has moderated, but insurers have left the market in droves. Premiums and deductibles first escalated and then skyrocketed.
