I love that Politico writes this sort of thing without any apparent self awareness. The good news is that he’s vastly expanded medical coverage in a state that really needs it. It’s going to save a lot of lives. BUT of if he ever wants to run for President, there might be some angry Republicans. So, on one hand, competent governance and thousands of lives saved. On the other hand, maybe an awkward explanation to some angry people. It’s tough to balance this sort of thing.
In 2013, some parties reward denying access to medical coverage and some don’t.
