Time to change the narrative.
We've been hearing for so long about the disasters and catastrophes of the exchanges. (For good reason-- the rollout was a disastrous catastrophe.)
Everyone wrote the exchanges off. They could never meet the goals. The ACA was limping.
But then, in the last minute, when nobody thought they could do it, when obituaries were being written, when the goal had been modified because the initial goal was impossible-- the plucky underdog triumphed!
Everybody loves an underdog that wins. This is our narrative. This is what we need to take to November. Grasping victory from the jaws of defeat.
In your face, Republican naysayers! Democrats need to trumpet this victory from the skies. Embrace our victory, Democratic candidates.
