Obamacare Cures the Republican Party

Obamacare has been a boon for Republicans. It’s been the ultimate Christmas present, beyond Republicans’ fondest wishes.

President Obama’s signature program may not be bringing affordable health insurance to the middle class but it has cured what was ailing the Republican Party.

Two months ago, following the government shutdown and Republican histrionics, Democrats led Republicans 50-42 in the generic congressional ballot.

Today, according to CNN/ORC, the Republicans have a 49-44 advantage over Democrats.

Obviously, these polls only show a trend, but the change is radical.

Now, Republicans need to find a way not to self-destruct with primary races. They need to nominate candidates that the electorate can take seriously and to formulate a positive agenda, something like the Contract with America.

Is that too much to ask?

It isn't too much to ask, but unfortunately, it may be too much to hope for. I'd really like to be wrong on that.
