Accelerationist GOP

The Republican response was predictable: a resounding “we told you so.” All along, they insisted that the ACA wouldn’t work, that it would raise costs — and when reality didn’t match with their scary stories, they took deliberate action to make the bad outcomes they fervently wished for more likely. In the case of the subsidies, which are helping real people get coverage, it took an extensive lawsuit, some friendly judges, and some twisted legal reasoning to undermine them.”

(How different is that, really, in intent, from the idea from the opposite end of things that Obama should have pushed for national health and have it fail, so as not to compromise?)
