  •  HCR benefits delayed to 2014 (9+ / 0-)

    If people only vote based on their actual benefits not on legislative wins, then delaying the main benefits of HCR until 2014 was utterly crazy from a political standpoint.

    I'm not exactly sure if that matches your point, and I'm not sure it would have changed this campaign season because "it's the economy stupid", but it seems like the HCR delayed benefit was a prime example of the political junkie fallacy, assuming non-junkies would give credit for an abstract plan where they can't see any benefits (yet).
