Remember how we suffered through months and months of accusations of being Nazis, mobsters, racists, and all kinds of other niceties simply because we didn’t want the federal government controlling our most intimate and critical health care decisions? Remember how the liberal Dems in Congress fled from their constituents, who knew more about the various versions of the unread, multiple-thousand-page bills that were released just days before critical votes? Remember how they finally passed DemCare on a Sunday evening in late March with the promise that we’ll love it once we get to know it?
Moe Lane helps illustrate how that promise was exactly like all the others the Dems used to try to make up political cover for themselves (meaning, it was a total load of crap):
Rich with symbolism and ceremony, the White House event provided clues about how the administration plans to sell the measure to a skeptical public: as a moral necessity of historic proportion. Obama told his audience of allies that “we are not a nation that scales back its aspirations.” But his central challenge remains convincing an anxious nation that it can afford to help all, even at a time of rising debt, high unemployment and two distant wars.
White House ramps up health care messaging
Washington (CNN) – The White House announced Thursday that veteran Democratic strategist Stephanie Cutter will lead communications and outreach strategy efforts for the implementation of the new health care reform law.
White House health-care campaign begins
The Obama administration’s campaign to sell the new health-care law to a skeptical public is beginning to take shape, with a focus on short-term changes that kick in before the November midterm elections.
White House and Allies Set to Build Up Health Law
WASHINGTON — President Obama and his allies, concerned about deep skepticism over his landmark health care overhaul, are orchestrating an elaborate campaign to sell the public on the law, including a new tax-exempt group that will spend millions of dollars on advertising to beat back attacks on the measure and Democrats who voted for it.
And yet, strangely, DemCare is even more unpopular now that it was before it passed.
Moe offers the following rhetorical question:
Apparently, the President’s plan involves saying the exact same thing over and over and over again and hoping that he’ll get a different result this time.
I trust that I don’t need to elaborate that further?
I would add the same thing conservatives were saying when Obama launched the first effort to persuade America that the crap they just rammed down our throat really was chocolate: if you have to sell it to us after the fact, then you’ve clearly done something wrong.
The American people agree, and repeal is in the air. Let’s hope it stays.
There’s my two cents.
DemCare closes insurance companies (already)
You have a duty to die, cheaper
94% of businesses believe DemCare will increase their costs
Competence on display: DemCare milestones are already being missed
