Free stuff

Thinking today about conservs' claim that Obama won because he handed out free stuff. Wouldn't it be great if that were true? Suppose instead of spending half a billion dollars on stupid campaign ads, a candidate would just say, "If I'm elected, I'll pay for the health insurance of everyone making under $200,000 a year for the next four years."

Unfortunately, it isn't even close to being true. You posted this in the other place, where I read it but didn't comment on it. I'll post a reply there if I can think of something totally brilliant to say about it, but unfortunately I haven't come up with anything so far.
