When Medicare plan D was rolled out on line a less than a decade ago, it took 4 months for the website to function; all the loudest critics of the ACA rollout now were calling for patience and singing from the same hymn book about the virtues of the program. Democrats by and large were against it as too much was given to big Pharma and a massive donut
Instead of deriding the Medicare rollout, Democrats took the time and effort to work with Republicans to sort out the programs shortfall. Now Republicans are trying to make capital out of a 3 week old program as if the website is all the ACA is, there is no effort being made to improve the program, no Republican is looking for cost savings. They’ve made the website the issue.
This is low politics at its worst and shows just how fallacious and spurious Republicans have become when all they have is a manufactured message while expecting the electorate to be so detached from the recent past that they forget that Medicare plan D also had a 4 month long rocky start. The Democrats worked to improve the Republican plan as they saw that even though it wasn’t great, with some tinkering it would help a lot of elder constituents.
Republicans don’t want to try to even suggest how the ACA could be improved, they have no plan of their own and like Medicare D, the ACA is not perfect but it will help a lot of people in America. That anyone could support this duplicitous political noise machine as they do the opposite of what they did a few years ago is both astounding and mind boggling.
They really do think America lacks the intelligence to see how dishonest they are being over a website with rollout problems. Where are the honest adults in the Republican congress that were there championing Medicare D through its teething problems? Why are they deliberately masking the recent past as if cooperation and compromise didn’t exist?
And why are they fixated on selling nothing but false narratives? It’s as if the whole lot of them don’t think that video archives and sound archives don’t exist that shows them in their full and glaring dishonesty.
