8. Ah yes. Romneycare.

We all opposed it back then. Massive tax dollar giveaways to private insurers...saddling the middle class and the young with the costs of the program...the crazy notion that the GOVERNMENT was forcing you give YOUR MONEY to the insurance megacorporations...blah, blah, blah. Opposition to it was nearly universal.

Then someone came up with the brilliant idea to take it national, "Romneycare" became "Obamacare", and suddenly it's the greatest idea since sliced bread. To us anyway. To the Republicans, who once hailed it as the "private sector solution to the healthcare crisis", it became the worst idea that any President had ever had. And yet, the only thing that actually changed was the scale.

Politics is funny sometimes.
