In their Obamacare opposition, Republicans are now reduced to anecdotes based on misleading or false reporting, and in so doing, they are deceiving themselves. Because millions of Americans have now signed up for health care coverage under Obamacare, that means Republicans are left with their loose evidence and their bad intentions. And in many cases the evidence Republicans present is bad because it has been tainted by their own rhetoric, repeated ad nauseam on Fox News. It’s a self-fulfilling feedback loop. Tell people Obamacare is bad, and the people who listen to you will offer you the “evidence,” even though they never gave the process a good-faith effort.
