    Straightforwardly true here and true elsewhere in the world as well. (New Labour in the UK is to the right of the Thatcherites.) Neoliberalism reigns.

    This is akin to suggesting that "the sky appears blue" is an unsupported generalization.

    DLC and Third Way?

    The ACA is a great example of this shift.

    This would have been a right-wing piece of legislation in the 80s and 90s. Individual mandate is Milton Freidman and Heritage Foundation stuff. Bob Dole and GWB the elder supported it. It's one of the reasons why many of us were not so thrilled about it, thinking that it wasn't a very progressive proposal.

    The liberal position is universal coverage, perhaps through some sort of single payer system. Despite the fact that the majority of the country supports this (and the majority of doctors support it), the majority of Democratic politicians do not. This is because of the lurch to the right.

    The plural of anecdote is not data.
