Krugman: ObamaCare is becoming a "Benghazi-type affair" that "nobody cares about but the GOP"

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman informed his audience on Tuesday that the problem-plagued Affordable Care Act has turned a corner. Based on “upbeat” statements from the White House and a shift in the media’s coverage of the implementation of the ACA, Krugman sees the law’s roll-out evolving from a failure into an unmitigated success.

Krugman added that the problems will continue, but not in their present form. “Obamacare will turn into a Benghazi-type affair where Republicans are screaming about a scandal nobody else cares about,” Krugman predicts.

“White House officials are sounding increasingly upbeat,” Krugman wrote on Tuesday, linking to a Washington Post summary of Tuesday’s update from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. “They could be deluded or spinning; but after what happened two months ago one suspects that the last thing they want is to inflate expectations unduly.”
