Now, Mr. President, do a better job of explaining the damn healthcare future!
That’s what the Prez needs to do: a clear, simple explanation that all Americans now will have access to health care, regardless of their income, regardless of their pre-existing conditions, etc.
If he does that, and points out clearly that the other guys want to take it all away, people will see it’s a winner and he’ll be reelected easily (and Dems will do better, because the other guys don’t actually have a healthcare plan). The exchanges and the subsidies should do the rest, and we may eventually get to single payer.
This was a big loss for the GOP, although they get a chance to screw poor people via Medicaid on the state level.
For the poor, it will still depend on where you live and the states will race to the bottom for a while.
For everyone else, this is the biggest positive thing to happen in America since Medicare and the Voting Rights Act, a truly big deal!
