    "tax raises" for people who can't afford to buy insurance they can't afford to use, be my guest.  I'd prefer not to see the Republicans riding into office on this talking point.

      and besides I'll take the "your healthcare coverage actually provides coverage" talking point over the "you don't need healthcare coverage because you can always walk into the emergency room" one you think is going to sweep Republicans into office.

        •  the Sunday talk shows aren't moving any needles (0+ / 0-)

          What gets Republicans elected:

          - "likeability" and "relatability" and other personal opinion crap.
          - Commercials on the tv & radio
          - Campaign workers to help people get to the polls.
          - Voter suppression.
          - Lawyers

          What the politicians say doesn't matter nearly as much as how much they say it, how often, and how loudly.

            I was referring to the talking points of republicans all said in concert during 2010.

              please refer to my previous comment.

              It doesn't matter what they say just how they say it, how often and how loudly.
