Seriously? The media decides to compare the rollout of Obamacare to Dubya’s handling of Hurricane Katrina?
But if that isn’t insane enough, the media had to take it one step beyond that and try to make it sound unfair to Bush to compare Obamacare to Katrina. Naturally, the Daily Show makes quick work of that:
Do Republicans really want to remind anyone about Hurricane Katrina at all? Do Americans have memories that amazingly bad that the GOP feels it can bring up Bush’s monumental failures and compare them to a botched website rollout? Or have Republicans just rewritten history in their own minds so completely that they don’t remember?
UPDATE: More good news for Obamacare. The increase in cost for health care for the last three years is the lowest ever recorded. For a while, critics attributed this to the depressed economy, but the fact that cost increases have stayed down even as the economy recovers shows that the change is also due to structural changes — namely the implementation of Obamacare, which contains provisions to reduce costs.
