There are very few things that piss me off more than Democrats running away from The Affordable Care Act (cough... Claire Mccaskill). Far from perfect, it will none the less change the lives of 80% or more of the 30 million Americans without health insurance. Democrats voted for it because it was the right thing to do, and when they refuse to own it -- and their vote -- they are telling voters that the Republicans must be right.
I despise politicians who won't stand and fight. Every Democrat seeking election should be defending the ACA with gusto and demanding that Republicans answer for wanting to appeal it. The stump speech writes itself.
Citing the AP, TPM reports that the President is embracing 'Obamacare' on the campaign trail.
"And recent polls suggest why. Health Reform is more popular than it’s been in two years. And it’s been steadily getting more popular over the course of the summer."
TPM has more.
