I know who to credit


nudge here. Push there.

When there was an attempt to make the ACA bipartisan, there were many concessions made to get th party of "NO" on board.

After it was passed, with many plans and coscessions made to support the introduction of the plan, there was a lot of pressure to sessen the impact of a mandatory plan.

And there was a serious attempt to make the final plan NOT work, that impacted more then HALF the states. Don by the Party of NO.

Refuse to allow the plan to pay for the impact happened in 28 states. NEARLY ALL GOP controlled, for the purpose of not making the plan popular for the states that needed it MOST. REjection of the ACA support that was designed to lessen the impact.

Kind of a "kill it by inches", nudge here, push there. No Medicaid support, rejected! No universal signups, REJECTED! No plan in OUR state, REJECTED!!

Did that help? Or did it cause a screwed up compromise work a LOT worse?

Well, I think a person would have to LOOK at what happened and SEE what happened, wouldn't they?
