As the NYT recently put it:
[Some] involved with the passage and repeal of the Medicare Catastrophic Coverage Act see clear parallels with the current situation, in which a very vocal segment that views itself as harmed by the new law has joined with highly organized political operations to rally opposition to it.
Eventually, MCCA was repealed and sent to the dust bin of history, where Obamacare belongs. To read the rest of the column, click here.
