LIVE BLOG: Chait Needs to Re-engage with Reality

John, I’d add (for now) a few points to your response to Jonathan Chait. Isn’t it interesting that Americans are siding, in overwhelming numbers, with “people who reply either on debunked claims at best and talk-radio-level slogans at worst”? And if Mr. Chait is proud to claim such articulate advocates as Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, John Dingell, Louise Slaughter, and all the rest, he is free to do so.

This was a dispiriting day for the president, for the Democrats, and for their health-care plans. I think ObamaCare will die; and it will die because liberals are badly losing the arguments on the merits. The sooner liberals like Chait accept that unpleasant truth — the sooner they re-engage with reality — the better off they will be.
