Why Why Why Won't These Americans Surrender To The State?

I came across this piece in the BBC which is all about Americans and how they don't recognise their own interest when it comes to the healthcare bill, and how it's because they're being conned by the "stories" of the Republicans rather than the rational facts of how much better off they'd be, the poor dears.

Let's consider what experts they went to:-

Dr David Runciman: A former Guardian Journalist
psychologist Drew Westen: "an exasperated Democrat"
Thomas Frank: "an even more exasperated Democrat"

So, 3 left-wingers. Very fairly balanced coverage, BBC.
