  •  But the Dems can highlight Medicaid signups! (10+ / 0-)

    And translate that into lives saved, number of people and families who will receive affordable health care -- and personal bankruptcies that will be avoided.

    Remember, the Republican Party’s message is: Medicaid signups don’t count.

    Bullshit! That’s why it’s so important for Brainwrap to be running a tally of Medicaid signups at his Obamacare site:

    In 2014, Democratic candidates should go for the jugular vein of the Republican establishment in all those states that denied their citizens Medicaid expansion!

    •  I think this demonstrates support for.... (0+ / 0-)

      single payer.  LA demonstrates that people want the hc coverage but they don't trust the ACA (probably because it comes from a politician and very few people express trust in any politician).  The support from the duck calling stars (I suppose it's no stranger than a has-been family of a drug addled Rock star being popular) was partly derived from the same concerns.  They are part of the greater community and that was a pretty decisive win.
      It also gives Dem's a good deal of cause for hope in 2014.
