Este es un tema que veremos repetido mucho camino a Noviembre...

Mensaje por Charlie319 el Lun Feb 17, 2014 9:58 am

Es interesante que la ley conocida como Obamacare, que fue pasada exclusivamente con votos Democratas ( http://www.healthreformvotes.org/congress/roll-call-votes/s2009-396 y http://www.healthreformvotes.org/congress/roll-call-votes/h2009-887 ) es hoy dia el Coco de los politicos Democratas que buscan revalidar su cargo en Noviembre. Esto es algo que veremos hacer al Partido Cultural Marxista (Uno en el cual sus proponentes jamas han vivido bajo el Marxismo, pero apoyan sus conceptos) a medida que se dan cuenta de que el bodrio de ley que pasaron es un veneno politico y social.

On Health Act, Democrats Run to Mend What G.O.P. Aims to End
By ASHLEY PARKERFEB. 16, 2014

Reframing ‘Obamacare’

WASHINGTON — The ad supporting Representative Ann Kirkpatrick, Democrat of Arizona, opens with a montage of Americana Main Streets, followed by the green fields and dirt roads of the West — the “small towns and wide-open spaces,” the narrator explains, where Ms. Kirkpatrick “listens and learns.”
His voice remains tranquil even as he turns to a more cutting message about President Obama’s signature health care law: “It’s why she blew the whistle on the disastrous health care website, calling it ‘stunning ineptitude’ and worked to fix it,” he says, before adding, “Ann Kirkpatrick: Seeing what’s wrong, doing what’s right.”
As Democrats approach the 2014 midterm elections, they are grappling with an awkward reality: Their president’s health care law — passed almost entirely by Democrats — remains a political liability in many states, threatening their ability to hold on to seats in the Senate and the House.

As a result, party leaders have decided on an aggressive new strategy to address the widespread unease with the health care law, urging Democratic candidates to talk openly about the law’s problems while also offering their own prescriptions to fix them. The shift represents an abrupt change from 2010, when House Democrats tried to ignore the law entirely and “got their clocks cleaned,” said Senator Christopher S. Murphy, Democrat of Connecticut, referring to the more than 60 seats that Republicans picked up to regain control of the House.

Part of what we learned in 2010 is that this is a real issue of concern to voters and you can’t dodge it, you have to take it on, and I think Democrats are much more ready and willing to do that in 2014,” said Geoff Garin, a Democratic pollster who has done surveys for Democrats on the law. “We certainly have enough evidence now that this is not a fight you can win if you are in a defensive crouch.”

Democrats will need plenty of offense as they face a multimillion-dollar advertising assault from Republican-aligned interest groups and candidates that want to make the midterm elections a referendum on the Affordable Care Act, using the law as an exemplar of the government’s ineptitude in managing a vast national program.

The lesson of 2010 is not lost on Senator Mary L. Landrieu, Democrat of Louisiana, who is considered one of this cycle’s most vulnerable incumbents. In her first television spot, she looks directly into the camera and addresses the botched rollout of the health care law: “I’m fixing it, and that’s what my bill does, and I’ve urged the president to fix it,” she says, referring to legislation she sponsored that would allow individuals to keep their insurance plans even if the plans did not meet the minimum requirements of the health law. (Eso no empieza a "arreglar" el desmadre que ha ocasionado, ni lo que va a costar este zombie legislativo)

A memo from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee distributed to candidates and consultants suggested possible lines of attack, such as accusing a Republican who voted to repeal the health law of wanting “to go back to the days when insurance companies could charge women more than men for the same coverage, and treat pregnancy as a pre-existing condition.”

Democrats say their new approach is consistent with polling data that shows Americans would prefer to try to improve the law rather than repeal it.
In a CBS News poll conducted in January, 56 percent of respondents said that the health law contained some good things, but that changes were needed to make it work better, while 34 percent said the law needed to be repealed entirely. (O sea que un 90% del publico encuestado esta en desacuerdo con Obamacare)

A new ad by Alex Sink, a Democrat running to fill the open Florida seat previously held by Representative Bill Young, a Republican, embodies the “fix, but do not repeal” message: After a narrator warns that her opponent “would go back to letting insurance companies deny coverage,” Ms. Sink addresses the camera and says, “Instead of repealing the health care law, we need to keep what’s right and fix what’s wrong.” (Esperense...No esa la postura Republicana en el 2012? http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/magazine/january_february_2012/features/obamacare034478.php?page=all "Republicans will probably retain some aspects of the law the public clearly likes, such as the narrowing of the Medicare prescription drug “donut hole” and the provision that allows adults under age twenty-six to stay on their parents’ insurance plan. Republicans can try to quietly pocket other money-saving ACA provisions, such as Medicare cost controls, whose savings Republicans want to use to finance other legislative objectives.")

Similarly, in a Senate Majority PAC advertisement supporting Representative Bruce Braley, Democrat of Iowa, who is running for the open Senate seat there, the narrator praises Mr. Braley for his willingness “to fix the health care law, make it work for Iowa, and hold insurance companies accountable.”

The White House seems to understand the political necessity of allowing congressional Democrats to criticize the error-riddled rollout of the president’s health care law.
Many Democrats are reluctant to let Mr. Obama campaign for them, in part because of his low approval ratings.
At a recent retreat of Democratic senators, the president said he understood that there would be times when they needed to distance themselves from him.

Not all Democrats say an attack on the law is advisable. “Democrats have been way too defensive about the health care bill, and as the website becomes fully operational and the cost savings numbers continue to mount, I think we should essentially be letting our guard down and start talking about the fact that this is working,” said Mr. Murphy, who recently appeared in an ad noting the successes of his state’s health care exchange. “We’ve really let the Republicans define the conversation over the last six months, and it’s time for that to change.”

But that will not be easy. The dominant issue in political television advertising in January — the first month of the midterm election year — was health care, according to data compiled by the political advertising monitoring firm Kantar Media/CMAG, which also found that the vast majority of health care ads were critical of the law.

Among more than 1,000 health care-focused commercials airing for House races, for instance, the group found that only seven did not contain negative messages about the law.
Moreover, not all congressional Democrats are talking about the health care law in their advertising or their routine stump speeches — and even some of those hoping to explain their support are being far from laudatory. The commercial for Ms. Kirkpatrick, the Arizona Democrat, by the House Majority PAC refers to the “disastrous health care website,” as does a spot the group did for Representative Joe Garcia, Democrat of Florida.
If Democrats are being forced to spend resources in February attacking Obamacare, then this is a very grim foreshadowing of what November will bring,” said Andrea Bozek, the communications director for the National Republican Congressional Committee.
Indeed, the Republicans are hoping to use the law’s bungled initial implementation as a way to discredit their opponents on an array of issues.

The same Democrats who promised that if you like your health plan or doctor you could keep them now claim they want to ‘fix’ Obamacare, but it’s simply not credible,” said Brad Dayspring, a spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
Trusting a Democrat like Mary Landrieu, Mark Begich or Kay Hagan to fix Obamacare would be like buying a bridge from George C. Parker,” he added, referring to the con man who famously “sold” the Brooklyn Bridge more than once. Senator Begich is from Alaska, and Senator Hagan from North Carolina.

The Democrats say they must try to blend criticism and optimism when talking about the law. “You have to acknowledge there were problems,” said Representative Steve Israel of New York, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “You can’t sugarcoat it. If you sugarcoat it, you lose all credibility.

“But,” he quickly added, “once you acknowledge it, you have tell voters that you want to fix it and improve it — but not repeal it — and remind them specifically of how a Republican repeal will hurt them.”
