    You talk sense while a thousand chicken littles run around screaming "The sky is falling, the sky is falling."

    This foo-fer-all has given the market place more visibility for the exchange than any slick ad campaign could.

    It reminds me of the time during the 2008 campaign when the Repubs took up mocking candidate Obama's partial response to a question on energy conservation. He mentioned keeping your tires inflated properly to improve gas mileage, reduce use and save money.

    McCain et al decided to mock this by offering cheap tiny tire inflation measuring devices for only $35. Within a few weeks some garage owners were reporting see a lot of people using the devices. So, they mock, grow curious and then use. I wonder how many are still in use today.

    We must insist that people know that while the marketplace is/was screwed up, the ACA is ticking along and doing a lot of good even now.

    Let's add hopeful comments on news and TV websites.

    I'm asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about real change in Washington ... *I'm asking you to believe in yours.* Barack Obama
