What Neither the Republicans Nor the Democrats Understand About Obamacare

The 2018 Elections Were Not About Obamacare--They Were About Health Insurance Security 

 

The 2018 midterm elections weren't a tsunami for Democrats--more like a blue wave hitting a red wall.  

 

Democrats are claiming the election vindicated Obamacare because they were successful in gaining control of the House of Representatives by criticizing losing Republicans for their votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act--including its key consumer protections.

 

My sense is that both Democrats and Republicans have missed the critical point.

Both sides don't understand that this was not about Obamacare. It was about health insurance security.
