Democrats Try New HealthCare Message: We’re “Improving” It

It has really gotten to a point where allies in the media cannot even avoid the idiocy of the Democrats, as witnessed by this Ben Smith article

Key White House allies are dramatically shifting their attempts to defend health care legislation, abandoning claims that it will reduce costs and deficit and instead stressing a promise to “improve it.”

The messaging shift was circulated this afternoon on a conference call and PowerPoint presentation organized by Families USA — one of the central groups in the push for the initial legislation. The call was led by a staffer for the Herndon Alliance, which includes leading labor groups and other health care allies. It was based on polling from three top Democratic pollsters: John Anzalone, Celinda Lake and Stan Greenberg.

The confidential presentation, available in full here and provided to POLITICO by a source on the call, suggests that Democrats are acknowledging the failure of their predictions that the health care legislation would grow more popular after its passage, as its benefits became clear and rhetoric cooled. Instead, the presentation is designed to win over a skeptical public, and to defend the legislation — and in particular the individual mandate — from a push for repeal.

Once this information hits the mainstream, provided it does, we should see the ObamaCare ratings tank even further. Remember, 60% already want it repealed. It has not gotten more popular: just the opposite, as people learn more and more about it, thanks to a media that failed to truly inform the public about the legislation during the 8 months it was debated.

    I guess by not paying your bills, they are improving the system. All doctors, including myself, are having a good bit of difficulty at this time as the government and many of the private insurance carriers have decided that they don’t have to pay. I know of at least one physical therapist that is almost out of business. The result is that doctors are packing in appointments and spending far less time than usual with patients.

    If Obama and the Dems are not trying to destroy our country, please tell me what else they might do to accomplish the job.
