What's the Democrat ACA line today?
This is a fun read from Mickey Kaus. You'll recognize these laughable "lines" as the same ones the true believers post here every day, in their zeal to ensure we all understand how GREAT obamacare is!
FTA: "I’d like to toe the party line on insurance cancellations, but it keeps changing!
Old line: These are all “junk” plans! They deserved to die! People are better off without them!
Problem: There are lots of people on plans that seem reasonable that they were happy with.
New line: Aha! Yes, it’s true, “some of the people getting cancellation notices had generous coverage.“** But if they only could go on the web site they’d see they’ll wind up paying less!
Problem: No,a big chunk"maybe the whole 40% or so who won’t get any subsidies, maybe an even greater share"will be paying more.
New line: Of course they will! Who said they wouldn’t? They should pay more! They’ve unfairly “benefited from … discrimination’ because, for example, they don’t have preexisting conditions. They deserve a premium increase. Anyway, they’re disproportionately “younger, healthier, and richer.” Screw ‘em!"
He ends with this: "We’re the people who thought Obamacare would save us! Now Cohn & Ezra Klein tell us we’re the people Obamacare is out to punish.
Freelancers, always the suckers."

PS Popcorn time! The president will appear on TV today at 11:30 EST. The believers will tune in to get their marching orders, and whatever he promises will be their new line! Whether it makes sense or not.
