How right-wing media saved ObamaCare

Source: The Atlantic
by Conor Friedersdorf

[T]the GOP didn't honestly acknowledge the hard tradeoffs inherent in health-care policy before making the case for a market-driven system. Republicans tried to hide the fact of tradeoffs …. And it helps explain how Republicans could win a presidential election and lots of congressional elections on the promise of repealing and replacing Obamacare, only to produce bill so wildly unappealing to voters. Once Republicans commenced governing, the tradeoffs couldn't be elided any longer. Still, even the insight that Republicans spent years willfully obscuring the tradeoffs involved in health-care policy doesn't fully explain the last week. Focusing on GOP officials leaves out yet another important actor in this debacle: the right-wing media." (03/27/17)
