Quote of the Day

“Still, here’s what it seems is about to happen [as Obamacare goes into effect]:  millions of Americans will suddenly gain health coverage, and millions more will feel much more secure knowing that such coverage is available if they lose their jobs or suffer other misfortunes.  Only a relative handful of people will be hurt at all.  And as contrasts emerge between the experience of states like California that are making the most of the new policy and that of states like Texas whose politicians are doing their best to undermine it, the sheer meanspiritedness of the Obamacare opponents will become ever more obvious.”

Paul Krugman, “The Obamacare Shock,” NYT

Not just people who lose their jobs, but people who have stayed in jobs they hate just for the health insurance, and people who have worked full-time for health insurance who would rather work part-time.  To a lot of people, Obamacare will equal Freedomcare.
