On Sunday something extraordinary happened. The Democratic party went from being a party that couldn't get anything done (why is another topic) to a party that passed the most sweeping overhaul of health care since the 1960s.
I believe most of the pundits are wrong about what's going to happen in November.
If you remember, all of these dire predictions in November were made in the aftermath of the surprise win by Scott Brown in MA. The Democrats at that time were seen as failures by not being able to pass Health Care. They were on the way to a "Waterloo."
Well - this Sunday. Everything changed.
Here's how we're going to win big in November (or at least stave off loses):
STEP 1: Find a "Natoma" in EVERY district in EVERY state.
STEP 2: Shoot a powerful advertisement that will go something like this:
"My son had a Neuroblastoma and thanks to my health care through my job we were able to treat him. But I lost my job. I had to find insurance on the individual market. We couldn't get insurance because he had a pre-existing condition. Without treatment he was going to die.
Thanks to my Democratic Congressman, my son can now get the treatment that will save his life.
The Democrats voted to save my son's life. The Republicans in congress voted to end my son's life.
STEP 3: Play this ad ALL THE TIME.
Real stories from real people on how this bill has changed their life for the better, got them the treatment they needed, and actually saved lives.
There's nothing to beat that. Nothing. It's a choice between a political party that chose the American people over their careers vs a political party that chose their careers over the American people.
I'll take that fight. I'm going to fight like heck in November. Are you?
