  •  Nice that one guy says he might go Democrat... (8+ / 0-)

    but Dems can't sit back.  They need to hammer home the message that folks who now have coverage they didn't before, have it because DEMS passed the ACA...not Republicans...not a one of them and it was the GOP which has voted to kill the entire bill nearly 50 different times.

    Any attempt by the GOP to claim ANY kind of credit for this legislation should immediately be put to rest with hard facts on how the party and how specific members of the party voted when push came to shove.

    And on top of it, Dems should continually point out any instance in which specific members of the GOP lied to them about features of the legislation and what it will do for them.

    You can't wait for them to sit back and say, "I may now vote Democratic Party."  You have to educate them because believe me, the GOP has already said it plans to lie its a..s off between now and the next election to convince people the ACA is a disaster and the Democrats are to blame.

    Free markets would be a great idea, if markets were actually free.

    •  Especially in KY (5+ / 0-)

      I'm so glad they keep highlighting how wonderfully the ACA is working here, but many people who are being signed up HAVE NO IDEA that KYnect is the dreaded "Obamacare." If they did, they might not sign up! So, we should tell them AFTER they enroll! :-)
