‘I voted for it before I campaigned despite it’

“A strangeness of many Democratic campaigns leading up to the 2010 midterm elections was how so many of them ignored their party’s magnum opus, the new health care law.

Typically, when lawmakers and a president enact major new legislation, it goes high on the list of accomplishments that is their case for re-election.

But the health care law was so unpopular in so many quarters, many Democrats seemed to prefer to avoid the subject if it was at all possible.”
