Ted Cruz; Method to his madness? Kimberley Strassel writes that the Dems now own Obamacare;
After 16 long days of vowing to Republicans that they would not cave in any way, shape or form on , Democrats spent their first post-shutdown week caving in every way, shape and form. With the GOP's antics now over, the only story now is the unrivaled disaster that is the president's health-care law.
Hundreds of thousands of health-insurance policies canceled. Companies dumping coverage and cutting employees' hours. Premiums skyrocketing. And a website that reprises the experience of a Commodore 64. As recently as May, Democratic consultants were advising members of Congress that their best ObamaCare strategy for 2014 was to "own" the law. [New Hampshire Senator Jeanne] Shaheen has now publicly advised the consultants where they can file that memo.Along with other Democrats up for re-election next year, including those in Arkansas, Alaska, Montana, Louisiana, and North Carolina.
Not smart, Harry (and Patty). Not very smart.
