Reader comment on: Reaction to ObamaCare Passing

Submitted by Dan D (United States), Mar 22, 2010 10:31

Valid points, however it does not consider the reality of mainstream politics among the general, non-political public. When Republicans again gain control of Congress and/or the White House, the failures of health care will be attributed by the press (obviously!) and the public at large to them. Always the failure of Democratic overreaching, big-spending programs during Republican governance is attributed to faulty administration and especially starving of resources.

If only the Republicans had spent three time the money on the program it surely would not have failed!

Just look at the constant refrain that education requires ever greater amounts of money, rather than new features of accountability or restructuring of incentives.
