So I Said This Three Years Ago….

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 7.236% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

…and holy crap, does it resonate now for the Republicans.

Time and time again, the Democrats march out a hell of a lot of compelling evidence that the other side is Messed Up, but then bobble the question when people ask, “…So what will you do when you get there?”

And I gotta say, this pretty much sums up the conservative take on health care.  I don’t know many Democrats who are double-fists in the air “HOO-AH!” about Obamacare. Most of us are praying it works better than we think it will.  But we also see that it stops insurance companies from yanking care for pre-existing conditions, and gets insurance to some people who don’t need it…
…and when we ask, “So what do you have that’s better?” the answer is, “Well, not much.”  (I’ve seen a counter-proposal or two, but lost me when they had several goals, and none of them were “Keep sick people insured.”)
So that’s my new political rule: the party that does the better job articulating what they’ll do, wins.
Remember that, Democrats.
