Republicans and tea partiers are beside themselves with an anger that you can smell, which means the media will be busy for quite some time covering the squeaky wheels. It will be a challenge, just like the first time, for Obama to get any message out on Obamacare. Our media is largely lazy and it's easier to cover the person having the temper tantrum. Mitch McConnell on Fox News this morning:
“I just want to ask what specific steps are you going to do to provide universal coverage to the 30 million people who are uninsured?” Wallace pressed. “That is not the issue,” McConnell insisted. “You don’t think the 30 million people who are uninsured is an issue?” Wallace wondered. Raw storyTo learn more about the Affordable Care Act, which I affectionately call Obamacare, this is an excellent, non partisan site. Let's be frank, republicans really don't care about the uninsured. As McConnell says, that's not the issue. Republicans fail to see how the uninsured drive up costs.
Another fact: Obamacare isn't the biggest tax increase ever.
