Debunking the “ObamaCare is Conservative” Myth, Part 3

For those of us who enjoy debating with leftists over the merits of ObamaCare, the most maddening argument to encounter is, “Why are you even arguing with me!? ObamaCare is a CONSERVATIVE law! The only reason you don’t like it is because President Obama proposed it, right? I bet if Bush signed it into law, you would LOVE it!” Obviously, this frustrating argument is grounded in the myth that ObamaCare is actually a conservative law.

As I argued in part one of this series, liberals are wrongfully asserting that all conservatives are Republicans, and that all Republicans are conservatives, and that therefore anything proposed or supported by Republicans is automatically “conservative.” Nothing could be farther from the truth. In part two of this series, I looked at the entirety of the myth and examined the merits of half of its claims in their own right.
