      but that wasn't really the point I was making.

      Frankly, I’m getting more than a little tired of hearing from angry America. I’m also less than fond of knee-jerk America. And when you combine the two with the Internet, you too often get stupid America, which is really annoying.

      •  Doesn't actually undermine their argument if they (0+ / 0-)

        made it right.

        The right tag line would be "Imagine how many more people would be insured if we didn't have Obamacare but had all the jobs it cost."
