The Washington Examiner‘s Byron York interviews an anonymous Democratic political strategist to help answer some questions that have been nagging me, too:
To some observers, the Democrats’ race to pass national health care seems irrational — even suicidal. Don’t party leaders understand how much the public opposes the bills currently on the table? Don’t they know that voters are likely to take their revenge at the polls next year? Given that, why do they keep rushing ahead?
We already had a notion of this folly from our junior U.S. Senator appointee Michael Bennet. Yet even if the Democrats are going to be headstrong about trying to force through any particular kind of this terribly unpopular legislation, it can’t hurt to remind them why at today’s Code Red Rally near you.
And take a little time to check out the entire Byron York piece. It’s good to get inside our opponents’ minds as we continue to craft not only a bold, but also a smart, resistance to the Democrats’ terribly misguided efforts to lead us toward government-controlled health care.
