One of the biggest congressional tacticians, McConnell’s efforts to either repeal and replace the ACA or get rid of it altogether has fallen on thankfully rough times. As attempt after attempt fails and will continue to do so, the American right will have to confront the distinct possibility that government subsidized healthcare will become as permanent a staple of the social safety net as the provisions outlined in the New Deal, the likes of which not even the most conservative politicians would even hint at a jettison.
Joe Biden said it well in the 1980’s: change of attitudes precedes change of policy, and healthcare coverage is a battle that will be won by the continued change of attitudes.
But until then, progressives and the politicians they support need to be ever on their guard because we know the extent to which the GOP likes dirty tricks.
