Quote of the Day: 'Obamacare' and 'Meanspirited' Republicans

"... here’s what it seems is about to happen: millions of Americans will suddenly gain health coverage, and millions more will feel much more secure knowing that such coverage is available if they lose their jobs or suffer other misfortunes. Only a relative handful of people will be hurt at all. And as contrasts emerge between the experience of states like California that are making the most of the new policy and that of states like Texas whose politicians are doing their best to undermine it, the sheer meanspiritedness of the Obamacare opponents will become ever more obvious."

--Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman on the Affordable Care Act's prospects (here)

  1. My partner, chair of District C Montgomery County Democrats, is a registered nurse who works at Montgomery Regional Hospital, usually in mammography but other places too. Once she described to me the day-to-day influence Obamacare has had I was amazed. I don't know how anyone could be an opponent if they saw the positive influence it's had. I had doubts at first, but knowing that lives are being saved trumps any and all other concerns.
