Health Care Policy and Marketplace Review A Health Care Reform Blog——Bob Laszewski's review of the latest developments in federal health policy, health care reform, and marketplace activities in the health care financing business.
Democrats are claiming the election vindicated Obamacare because they were successful in gaining control of the House of Representatives by criticizing losing Republicans for their votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act--including its key consumer protections.
My sense is that both Democrats and Republicans have missed the critical point. Both sides don't understand that this was not about Obamacare.

Why would a law that has so devastated the individual market be a winner?
And, why would it be a winner in the Virginia 10th? Because the Republican incumbent voted for the Republican House bill to repeal and replace Obamacare. In passing the House bill, Republicans were health care tone deaf.
