AP reports that Representative John Boehner is touting the Republican healhcare plan, and that it is in some ways better than the Democratic plans. The laugh is that every resident of the United States is living the Republican healthcare plan right now. The Republicans had 12 years to offer a healthcare plan, and while they did create a drug plan for Medicare, that was only an earlier cynical attempt to stave off more sweeping legislation, that will actually make a difference to the 46 million people who have no coverage.
You don’t get to cry about other peoples’ ideas when you’ve been given an opportunity to test your own and chose not to. That’s called taking pot shots, which is what the Republicans and the WSJ have been doing.
