Today, my comment on Paul Krugman’s terrific Op-Ed, Lousy Medicaid Arguments, didn’t make it because the New York Times closed out comments just as I was ready to publish it. I feel that this is one of my best!
Krugman intentionally did not name any party, brilliantly realizing that naming a party drastically limits the field of Obamacare’s enemies.
I feel it is crucial to understand why the enemies of Obamacare rabidly oppose it, and the reason is not primarily “Sheer spite — the desire to sabotage anything with President Obama’s name on it — …”
The enemies cannot afford another Social Security or Medicare that, once used and appreciated, will elect Democrats, as Social Security and Medicare continue to do.
The hatred and anger of the party electorate – tragically acquired by base appeals and disingenuous arguments exposed in this article – is used by the leadership, both sane and insane, to motivate the project to destroy Obamacare.
At the core of it all is the life of a party and the advantages of those whose bread is buttered by that party!
