Found this today as support for an argument. It’s ASTONISHING.
Progressives, PLEASE take 10-15 minutes asap to read this statement by Republican president/career military man/mid-century conformist/privileged old white dude Dwight D. “Ike” Eisenhower in 1955. Apparently, the Affordable Care Act is the fulfillment of a SIXTY-year-old policy prescription from the then- No. 1 Big Boss Republican, who presumably reflected the mainstream GOP (and his re-election would suggest he was popular in the party and the nation as a whole).
Contemplate how VERY dramatically the political landscape has shifted to the right in just a very few generations.
Then share this repeatedly with your Republican relatives and friends and see how they react. Should make for some very interesting conversations, and maybemaybemaybe some mental adjustments all around.
