    On their side. We'll never be able to reason with many of them, but we can prevent their poison from spreading.

    We need to simplify the message - for every one person they bring like this we need to bring 20 who are thrilled with ACA.

    Money should be treated like any other controlled substance; if you can't use it responsibly then you don't get to use it.

    •  Yes. And also, this will be less theoretical. (1+ / 0-)

      When people are enrolled in insurance through the ACA, their personal story will be what drives their opinion, not a story from a T.V. commercial.

      You make an important point about messaging and keeping it simple - for all issues, not only the ACA. The GOP knows how to keep it simple. They just make it simple and false.

      If we could get to simple and true, we'd have the advantage.
