Obama Prepares to Screw His Base

Ben Smith: "President Obama's enemies often accuse him, in the starkest political terms, of crudely acting to shift resources toward his political base: green-energy donors, single women, Latinos, African-Americans."

"But the next 12 months are likely to reveal the opposite. Imminent elements of Obama's grandest policy move, the health-care overhaul known as ObamaCare, are calculated to screw his most passionate supporters and to transfer wealth to his worst enemies."

But Ezra Klein disagrees: "Universal health-care systems in general, and Obamacare in particular, move money from the rich to the poor."
