On Oct. 14, Breitbart News recalled that Congress once repealed Ronald Reagan’s “signature” health law.
The article was inspired by the spurious arguments then being made by Democrats that President Barack Obama could not accept any changes to his own “signature” legislation. One month later, Democrats are desperate to change Obamacar–and the New York Times is exploring repeal, citing the Reagan precedent.
Monday’s article by Carl Hulse covers old ground but draws a new “lesson”: that Obamacare will not be as easy to repeal because it provides widespread benefits–unless “you get a few white-haired women to jump on the hood of someone’s car.”
