    This is why the Republicans are being so bold - there's another year before they'll have to face the voters.  They're counting on that time to obfuscate exactly whose fault everything is.

    That's also why they want to delay ACA for a year.  That would put its implementation close to another election, so people wouldn't be so used to its benefits and happy about finally being covered.

    •  Theory helps to explain something (0+ / 0-)

      If people like Ted Cruz thinks that eleven months or so is plenty of time for voters to forget Republican opposition to ACA, that helps to explain why these guys launched their hare-brained idea at the same time the marketplaces open.

      Maybe they do think they'll just take credit for ACA next November.

      I think it will be bad news for many Republicans, though. Eleven months with the new insurance in place will give many people the chance to find out what it offers, and to enjoy the extra bucks in their pockets. (Which will help the economy grow by November, as well.)
