Greenberg's Health Care Predictions

Alex Roarty reports at National Journal:
On Thursday, senior Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg told reporters that the Republican focus on hitting Democrats over Obamacare was a political "trap." Citing a new Democracy Corps poll he helped conduct, Greenberg said if Republican dwell on repealing the law while Democrats focus on fixing the economy, Democrats will come out on top.
In November 1993, Greenberg said:  "Health care will prove to be an enormously healthy project for Clinton, for labor and for the Democratic Party." (Ann Devroy and Dan Balz, "For President, Coalitions Are In Constant Flux," Washington Post, November 18, 1993)

In the 1994 midterm, Democrats lost control of both chambers of Congress for the first time in 40 years.
