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.

This Is A Big F-ing Deal

If Matt Bevin discovers that he can't eliminate the Medicaid expansion in Kentucky, that will go a long way towards proving that ACA is here to stay.  Republicans can still screw it up if they get complete control of the national government - making it an even bigger giveaway towards insurance companies, for instance, or ruining its finances because the GOP don't do math - but this is a possible big test of the survivability of the act.

Turns out it works. Turns out it's popular.
