Once again, a Republican challenge to former-President Barack Obama’s signature health care law has failed.
There is no shortage of personal stories like this out there. The Democrats should be actively seeking such stories and presenting them to the public. Vetting the stories will be important, to avoid the egg-on-face nature of many of the anti-Obamacare ads, but this shouldn't be all that hard to accomplish.
I am a 57-year-old with a pacemaker who takes blood pressure medication. I am not exactly the kind of person the health companies enter into bidding wars over.
Clint Murphy, a 38-year-old former GOP staffer, offered a surprising message to his conservative peers last week. He now supports Obamacare.
As America's children grow up and enter into the health insurance marketplace on their own, they will be the first generation who simply will not understand what the terms 'pre-existing condition' and 'lifetime cap' mean.
