I lost count of the number of straw men President Obama burned during his absurdly premature ObamaCare victory lap on Tuesday afternoon — because Republicans literally don’t want people to have health insurance or something, dont’cha’ know — but as Axelrod even admits in this segment, the real debate over whether ObamaCare is really going to “change the attitude that government can’t do anything” has hardly even begun. Yes, the (currently dressed-up) 7 million enrollment figure (which the administration first said was their goal, then walked back, then put forward again) might mean that ObamaCare will be insanely tough to ever really undo, but the country is only just barely embarking on discovering the glories of a government-dominated healthcare market and the costs and limitations that will come with it:

Well, I think there was also an element of relief. … I’m sure it was an exhilarating thing to see the demand for this insurance and the way it all came together at the end. I think that what’s clear is that the people who hoisted the “mission, demolished” banners were a little bit premature in their doomsday forecast. So, I think it will help change the attitude that government can’t do anything, that the system can’t work, and that will be positive. There’s still a long way to go in the public debate. I do believe that this is not going to be repealed, I don’t even think, Steve, the Republicans believe it’s going to be repealed, it’s too rooted now…
