Ongoing ACA Rollout Is Building On Successes

Why do stories like this one in the LA Times which is getting a lot of attention today in progressive circles, reporting rapidly rising ACA enrollments in November and about more and more states meeting or even exceeding their enrollment targets in these early weeks of the ongoing rollout -- and, by the way, the article doesn't even mention the extraordinary Medicaid expansion, or the multiplying lives saved by new regulations, also vital success stories, you know -- inevitably still begin with the words "despite the disastrous rollout"? You're reporting on the rollout. You're demonstrating it's not disastrous before our eyes. Why circulate right-wing anti-reform spin at one and the same time as you debunk it?
