“Being Like Romney Is A Good Thing, Right?” — Jeb Bush, Probably

Yesterday morning, Marco Rubio joined his mentor Jeb Bush in criticizing the “free stuff” strategy. Apparently Jeb saw that as an opening to double-down on his “free stuff” rhetoric last night. After being asked by Fox News’s Sean Hanity about the Affordable Care Act, Social Security, and Medicare, Jeb told Hanity that “offering free things to people [is] not working.”
Unfortunately for Jeb, not only are the ACA, Social Security, and Medicare important programs that provide necessary safety nets for millions of Americans, they’re also a whole lot more popular than the former front-runner.
