Policy and Politics

These things do not always line up.

But I have been finding it very strange that the obviously good tactical political position ("People don't want to be forced to buy shitty, expensive health insurance") corresponds to the obviously good policy position ("Everybody should be able to get sick and not go bankrupt.") creates difficulties for our elected officials.

FWIW Joan has been great on this. The proper policy decision has been clear, for some time.
