Republicans' Health Care Plan Is To Repeal And Cackle
Republican Health Care Plan?
Trick or Trick
"[C]onservatives want this moment to represent something more than a political victory. They sense an ideological victory: the discrediting of the Affordable Care Act as a policy model, a new opportunity for them to substitute their own vision. And there they are not only mistaken but deluding themselves in the fundamental way they have deluded themselves all along...What conservatives have never fully acknowledged is that its lack of popularity reflects not a broad agreement with the right's ideological critique but a deep aversion to change." Jonathan Chait in New York Magazine.
