P 4996 医療保険改革その後:保守派のまきかえし

Economist 2010.05.20

JOHN BARRASSO, the junior senator from Wyoming, is one of millions of Americans who think that Barack Obama’s health-insurance laws must be overturned. Two months after those reforms squeaked through Congress, polls suggest that many Americans still dislike them. Seizing on that unhappiness, the Republican Party is now boldly attempting to unravel Obamacare altogether.

At the federal level Republican leaders in Congress have jumped on every bit of negative news—for example, a recent report from the Congressional Budget Office suggesting that the reforms will cost more than originally forecast—as just cause for overturning them. Dr Barrasso, an orthopaedic surgeon by training, calls this the “second-opinion” strategy. His party has even set up a second-opinion website to gather all the anti-reform developments in one place.
