I don't read widely on the web much anymore, mostly picking articles and then just trolling back and forth with commenters, but...
The article from 'BetaPsi' is actually by Francine Kiefer writing for the Christian Science Monitor. The article itself is fair enough, but after pointing out that Bobby Jindal wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act, it immediately goes to:
“The overarching theme is: Let’s lower costs. The overarching theme is: Let’s create real portability and consumer choice. The overarching theme is: Let’s protect the most vulnerable – those with preexisting conditions and those that have trouble accessing health care,” said Jindal, whose son has been diagnosed with a medical condition.
Somebody needs to tell Governor Jindal that you can't really have three different "overarching themes". Obamacare is the best compromise of those three things (or any other three things) you want to try to balance, the only better balance is public health insurance, along with the private health insurance and private health care we already have.
Honestly, I thought I was being a tiny bit excessive when I started saying that the Democrats are going to take over both chambers of Congress completely in 2014, but I had no idea that the Republicons were seriously going to go with the "tenuously reported scare stories about Obamacare" strategy all the way to the election, which seems to be the case. Jindal is talking about not just getting rid of Obamacare, but Medicare. And that's the kind of rhetoric he uses, a reiteration of Obamacare's basic premises.
Thank you, President Obama, for being so much better than all of these other Politicians.
