Obamacare Is Now a Political Winner

Washington Post: “Biden’s celebration and Trump’s grudging acceptance of the ACA underline a striking reality: a law once derided as ‘Obamacare’ and demonized as a big government power grab is becoming a politically untouchable part of the American safety net, like Social Security and Medicare before it.”

“More than 45 million people now rely on the ACA and its provisions for health coverage, according to a federal report released last week, and the law’s protections for people who have preexisting conditions have transformed many Americans’ experience of health care. Yet for nearly a decade, Republicans like Trump successfully ran on pledges to ‘repeal Obamacare’ — and Democrats sometimes ran from it, scarred by the law’s bumpy rollout, the constant political attacks and the struggle to communicate its benefits.”

Playbook: “In Nov. 2013, just 33 percent of Americans held favorable views of the ACA, according to KFF. Today, 59 percent of Americans hold favorable views of the law.”
