The Odds Obamacare Critics Face
Conservatives almost all oppose the misnamed Affordable Care Act (ACA)--Obamacare--but they are frustrated to distraction by their inability to get their points across to the public. The case against Obamacare is objectively clear and (to me) persuasive. The problem is, So What?
Facing media that are 80-90 percent unfriendly (about the odds faced by dissidents in Russia or Venezuela), conservatives in general and Republicans in particular cannot hope to explain a complicated story to the public and get support for a government shutdown as a solution. It's tactics that are driving the Republicans crazy.
