I recommend looking at the charts that David Leonhardt presents in his latest New York Times column. I found them interesting and revealing. Take this one, for example, which illustrates the changes in the number of people with health care insurance since 2008:
about which he writes:
Since taking office, Trump has tried to undermined the Affordable Care Act, causing a rise in the number of Americans who do not have insurance.
I think he places a lot more stock in intentions than I do. A stronger message might be that quite a few people won’t purchase health care insurance unless compelled to do so. Or that a relentless advertising campaign (one of the things funded by the Affordable Care Act and which ended in June 2015) has an effect.
At any rate read the whole thing. I don’t think the charts are quite as damning of Trump as he seems to and a lot harder on Obama.
