    ...I doubt there was/is anybody who'd be able to deflect those attacks. They were going to come anyway, and will continue to come whether the GOPhers take the Senate back or not. All the Teahadists have left is hate. Yes, the rollout was a train wreck, but they overcame it because the idea was simply too good to fail, no matter how many people believe single-payer should have been Obama's first, last, and only option. In this climate, ACA was the best we could get.

    Burwell's still a temporary fix, no doubt, and I wonder how much pressure there'll be on Red-state Dems like Pryor and Landrieu to block her nomination. Whatever happens, the key is to hang onto the Senate and chip away more Teahadists from the House, which I believe can still be done -- particularly given the GOTP's assaults on women and minorities becoming more and more blatant. If we do that, we can start implementing the fixes ACA needs to work better and bring in those who live in states where Medicaid expansion wasn't/isn't happening.
