Ezra Klein makes a nice point about the GOP’s profound strategic stupidity:
It’s hard to overstate the magnitude of the GOP’s strategic failure here: Obamacare’s launch has been awful. More than a week after the federal insurance marketplaces opened, most people can’t purchase insurance on the first try. But Republicans have chosen such a wildly unpopular strategy to oppose it that they’ve helped both Obamacare and its author in the polls.
It takes a great deal to be more political inept than the Democrats, but the Republicans have somehow managed it.
