Paul Krugman is not one to exhibit irrational exuberance, so his saying this gives me hope:
I suggested yesterday that weâ€™re probably heading for a turning point in the health reform discussion. Conservatives are operating on the assumption that itâ€™s an irredeemable disaster that they can ride all the way to 2016; but the facts on the ground are getting better by the day, and Obamacare will turn into a Benghazi-type affair where Republicans are screaming about a scandal nobody else cares about.
And itâ€™s already starting to happen.
A CNN poll indicates a majority of Americans still have an open mind about whether the ACA will work, which is remarkable considering the relentless screaming coming from the Noise Machine.
Just to show it isn’t just righties who can be irrational — I give you Lambert and his readers, who still believe we’d have a single-payer health care system today if Obama hadn’t sold us out. Scott Lemieux snarks back.
