  •  Heard something interesting today (7+ / 0-)

    It seems that the only ones spending more money than the Koch brothers attacking the ACA are the insurance companies spending promoting health care.  Anti Obamacare will soon be religated to "Get off my lawn" status. May actually help the midterm elections for the Democrats since it makes the GOP look stupid, OK stupider.

    Never promote men who seek after a state-established religion; it is spiritual tyranny--the worst of despotism. It is turnpiking the way to heaven by human law, in order to establish ministerial gates to collect toll. John Leland

      By the time people are signed up, pay their premiums, and start getting the deferred health care they need, or start experiencing the health care needed for rehab, or for more expensive treatment (cancer, surgery, etc.), their own factual personal experience will begin to trump the spin they're being fed. Especially if they start to see loved ones benefit.

        Perhaps, at some point, individual experiences could/will reach a critical mass and produce a phase shift 100th Monkey Event in the popular paradigm.  Next thing you know.... we all wake up one morning "knowing" that quality, universal health care for all is just basic s.o.p. for any civilized society worthy of the name because the truth of that reality is in evidence everywhere around us.
