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.

A Potentially Big Deal

Obamacare was designed to be too good of a deal to pass up for the states.  And yet many did because Obama.  Perhaps the overwhelming incentives have finally sunk through.  Perhaps the lack of a need to obstruct Obama relentlessly since he's no longer on the ballot has given some GOP members leeway.  Perhaps the states really are more practical than the national government.

But if Texas and Florida do adopt the Medicaid expansion, this could drop the uninsured rate well under 10%.

Thanks, Obama!
