Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

So the GOP, having lost two elections in a row that were based at least in part on wealth inequality, having lost in the Supreme Court are now going to screw over ACA at the state level.

By not setting up exchanges, they can use a loophole in the law to prevent its implementation - perhaps -  in their states.

Again, the question becomes: What does the GOP offer America?  What is their positive agenda?

ACA was effectively a GOP idea.  That they could derail it on the bases of some Federalist clap-trap is kind of outrageous.

But it also validates the idea of a public option, which could have come in real handy about now.
