    start reporting the same results for themselves and it becomes national knowledge, the Democratic brand will skyrocket!! This (hopefully) will get the same favor for Dems as Social Security did for them.

      since 1993.

      The sum of all GOP fears

      Passage of the...health care plan, in any form, would guarantee and likely make permanent...the largest federal entitlement program since Social Security. Its success would signal a rebirth of centralized welfare-state policy at the very moment we have begun rolling back that idea in other areas.

      But the...proposal is also a serious political threat to the Republican Party...It will revive the reputation of the party that spends and regulates, the Democrats, as the generous protector of middle-class interests. And it will at the same time strike a punishing blow against Republican claims to defend the middle class by restraining government.
