Ezra Klein: In Conservative Media, Obamacare Is A Disaster But Not In Real World

Alan: Obamacare signifies irreversible commitment to the "socialized" Capitalism long manifest in Europe.
The upshot?

As currently constituted, The Republican Party cannot survive.

Whether consciously or unconsciously, American conservatives realize that passage-and-implementation of Obamacare sounds the death knell of their political movement and even more fundamentally, their identity. 

What's more, their children - soon to be persuaded by science - will abandon "the faith of their fathers."

"St. Thomas Aquinas, Natural Law And The Common Good"


In conservative media, Obamacare is a disaster. Not in the real world. "Obamacare isn't by any means a perfect law and not everything in it is going right....On the whole, though, costs are lower than expected, enrollment is higher than expected, the number of insurers participating in the exchanges is increasing, and more states are joining the Medicaid expansion. Millions of people have insurance who didn't have it before. The law is working. But a lot of the people who are convinced Obamacare is a disaster will never know that, because the voices they trust will never tell them." Ezra Klein in Vox
