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.

Might Want To Look Into This

The website is glitchy, but getting much better.

If your health care plan sucks, you won't be able to keep it.

But the central biggest factor in the struggles of the law - why the website is glitchy having to cover so many constituencies, why a throw-away political line has become a national outrage - is because the GOP is doing everything it can to destroy this law.

If we had a functioning press corps, we might be having a discussion as to why we should believe anything the GOP says about the law.  If we had a functioning press corps, we might be asking why GOP governors want their citizens to be without health insurance.

But we don't.


This is the reality.  For all the talk about "disaster" and "debacle", the fact is the ACA is rolling right along with a lot of its reforms.  The desperation that the GOP feels is that by the time 2016 rolls around, ACA will be impossible to get rid of.  Hell, by March or April, it will likely be hard to get rid of.

Any jackass can tear something down.  It takes a man to build something.
