Carville says, “I think this will be the best thing that has ever happened to the Democratic Party,” since health care costs are only going to go up and the Democrats can say that, unlike the Republicans, “we tried, we did something.” (Not that the Democratic effort delivered much in the way of cost control.) — PZS
