Ronald Reagan has the answer to GOP’s ObamaCare riddle
At NYPOST | by B. McCaughey
When President Ronald Reagan was asked why he settled for a 5 percent tax cut in 1981 when he had proposed cutting taxes by twice as much, he answered: “Half a loaf is better than none.”
That’s advice the Republican Party should heed right now.
The Senate’s failure this week to repeal ObamaCare is a bitter disappointment to the 18 million people in the individual market struggling with unaffordable premiums and deductibles. It’s also bad news for another 8 million who are opting to pay hefty penalties rather than buy those unaffordable plans.
