    New Dem message: 'Improve' health care, don't talk cost - Ben Smith - POLITICO.com

    I thought they had already fixed it, does that mean that we were right to think it is a disaster waiting to happen?

    This is based on a PowerPoint by Families USA?

    Do you dispute the facts, or just the fact that Democrats are admitting they have failed to sell health care?

    As opposed to the Republican plan of "attack the Hispanics, attack the gays, attack the president, attach the unemployed, attack the poor". Is there a "theme" here?

    Where is the part where Republicans help the Middle Class? Oh, sorry, "Attack the Middle Class". Well, at least Republicans are consistent.

    Maybe you could get Cass Sunstein or Valerie Jarrett to give us a PowerPoint that would be oh-so much more credible. :rolleyes:

    Savor this moment in US politics my fellow Conservatives. For now is the time when the American People have finally awoke to what the Democrat Party is, and what it stands for.

    This Crap is what Moderates in the Republican party have been pushing for Republicans to be more like. The next 2 Election cycles are going to be about Reducing Spending, the Deficit, and the Power, size and influence of the Federal Government.

    Most like not again in our life times will we be able to witness such an utter collapse of the Lefts agenda in action. Like I said. Savor it.

    I'm not disputing that Families USA apparently made a PowerPoint, I'm just wondering where the rest of this is coming from. It looks like the PowerPoint offers messaging suggestions and the focus here seems to be on the 13th slide:

    Use transition or bridge language to meet public where they are and relax their defenses. "The law is not perfect but it does good things and helps many people. Now we'll work to improve it."​

    And the 24th slide:

    Don't:
    • assume public knows the health reform law passed or if they know it passed understand how it will affect them;
    • list benefits outside of any personal context;
    • barrage voters with a long list of benefits;
    • use complex language or insider jargon;
    • use heated political rhetoric or congratulatory language;
    • say the law will reduce costs and deficit.

    So in reference to their PowerPoint, I suppose I'd have to ask: so what?

    Sounds like any other group that wants a political agenda advanced
