    Medicare are  working. I've said it before, the don't have to be truthful. Half truths and lies will do. All they have to do is put doubts in the minds of both the elderly and others.

    Just muddy the waters. It works like a charm especially if our side doesn't loudly and continuously counteract it.

    People aren't that into the weeds as some of us. They know bits and pieces. They know their own experiences.

    They still  don't like ObamaCare (cause they don't know much about it - thanks, Dems!) so the R's are tying Obama's Medicare cuts to the health care Act.

    Progressives will win only when we convince a majority that they, too, are Progressive. And... It’s the Supreme Court, stupid!

      Obama should be front and center with an Oval Office televised speech every time a new benefit comes due - as did the recent rebate checks insurance companies making more than 20% came due.

      The Rs lie and the Ds don't promote themselves or their policies.  It's making me crazy.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

      mud, simply wiping of our face doesn't work.  

      We have to fight back and hit their lies hard.  Part of the huge "Obamacare" issue is that Democrats haven't tried very hard to explain  the changes to the American people. And that includes the White House.

      The Democrats should, well, you know, actually stand for something too.  Just being "not Republicans" isn't a very good sales pitch.  When was the last time anyone saw a Democrat do a loud, hard, fiesty defense of working people versus corporations and "landlords" (the very wealthy)?   A long time right?

      That's because the Democratic politicians are equally owned by corporations.  We need our politicians to stand for the people over the abusive powerful in every capacity.  When they learn to do that well, we'll win more elections.
