Republicans love Obamacare!

Actually, yes, they kind of do. Just don’t tell them. Drum recently highlighted this series of polling results that shows that even Republicans strongly prefer virtually every single aspect of the ACA. Everything, but the individual mandate, of course.
And, of course, you simply don’t get the rest of these goodies without the individual mandate (or, some similar regulatory mechanism to insure healthy people are buying insurance). But, hey, let’s just pretend the whole thing is horrible and a massive government takeover because, in part, it helps less wealthy people afford health insurance by raising taxes on wealthy people. Oh the humanity.
