  2. I never ate dog crap either but am pretty sure that I never want to based on all of the anecdotal evidence!

    Valid point, Michael Haltman, except for the fact that there is virtually NO anecdotal evidence in relation to the ACA. There has been plenty of disinformation and lying (death panels!), but that is not evidence, just propaganda. In fact, the little bit of evidence that has come in so far has been positive. States such as New York and California are seeing LOWER average premiums as a result of setting up the exchanges.

    It’s been hard to avoid clips of this silly man as he does his pointless grandstand.

    When I heard him pronouncing “Obamacare” a total failure — months before it even starts up — I had a vivid flashback to 2008, when both ends of the political spectrum were announcing that Obama’s was “a failed Presidency” — before he was even inaugurated, while Dubya was still in the White House.

    I’m not sure what has happened to our understanding of temporal sequence, or cause and effect. But I have the vague feeling that there’s a common thread to crazy Mr. Cruz and the “speed of light” profiteering described in your second article!

    He also seemed to be telling his version of Green Eggs and Ham as if the law were already in full effect. I heard him say Americans were (currently) suffering under Obamacare at least once.

    Westomoon, the GOP strategy of announcing things as failures before they even get started is not crazy at all. In fact, it is perfectly rational. There has been plenty of work done in the social sciences that show first impressions matter more than critical thinking. If you can repeat the claim of failure often enough before the program starts, it will be that much harder for the other side to change the narrative later. That’s how you get comments like Michael Haltman’s.
