The New York Times editorial board makes an important point: the 2006 health care reform bill that then-Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney signed has become increasingly popular over time and as the bill has gone into effect. The board argues that since the national law is modeled on this one, we can expect the Affordable Care Act to get less controversial with time.
Of course, “Obamacare” doesn’t go into effect until 2014, and this time around Democrats can’t count on the support of sensible Republicans like … Mitt Romney. [New York Times]
