Republicans Don't Need to Sabotage Obamacare

I don’t believe conservatives should discourage young people, or anyone else, from buying health insurance.

David Morgan, who reports on health care at Reuters, could teach a class on how to spin a story. The Obama administration, he tells us in the lead of a recent article, is "poised for a huge public education campaign" about the health-care law. Opponents, however, aren't "educating people" when they argue that the law is flawed. No, they're engaged in "political maneuvers," following a "political playbook" and trying out "ploys."

But not to worry! "Political analysts say the Republican onslaught could prove short-lived" once people start experiencing the wonderfulness of the new law.
