Something unusual seems to be happening--a major government program has been introduced and seems to be working well. I refer, of course, to President Obama's health care plan...ACA or Obamacare.
I guess they blew the introduction in a pretty big way; the newspapers were full of stories about blunders. But have you noticed how the tone has changed lately? Stories now are about enrollment beyond predictions – seven, eight million or nine or whatever. I’m guessing it's the kind of publicity for the kind of program that a president concerned about the government's social role would have liked from day one.
And while it's true that the US is very up to date in lots of things, we are the only major industrial power whose people do not have some kind of national health insurance…until now
Maybe, just maybe, the times they are a'changin'.
