But thinking these Democratic electoral wipeouts were a result of Americans secretly wanting socialized health care is like Hollywood arguing its terrible summer box office was because “Boss Baby” wasn’t showing in enough theaters.

It’s probably true that voters are skeptical of Republicans’ ability to fix the mess that is health care, especially when the party is led by an unpopular president whose knowledge of medical procedures seems to be limited to the plastic surgery performed on television personalities. But the public saying, “I’m not so sure it’s a good idea to write and pass a bill in a week after Republicans had seven years to fix Obamacare” is far different than “I want the federal government fully in charge on my health care.”
