Who Cared First?

Some recent history, Abbott and Costello style. . .

Krugman: Strange as it may seem, health care plans nowadays have very peculiar names.

Blitzer: Funny names?

Krugman: Nicknames, nicknames. For instance, now we have Hillarycare, Romneycare, and Obamacare.

Krugman: I’m telling you. Hillary invented Hillarycare, Romney invented Romneycare, and Romney invented Obamacare.

Blitzer: So Hillary invented Hillarycare?
