Why Democrats aren't running on health care

Full story: Washington Post - The Fix

Why Democrats aren't running on health care The White House has launched a public relations onslaught to coincide with today's enactment of a handful of popular provisions in the health-care law , but there remains deep skepticism among the party's political class that candidates can -- or will -- run on health care at the ballot box this fall.

3. Most still have no clue what is actually in the Law so than can not run on it.

2. Those who have read it sure as hell are not going to run on it.

And the Number ONE reason Democrats aren't running on health care?

1. They want to WIN!

The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009 it was actually January 3rd 2007 the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, the start of the 110th Congress. The Democratic Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.

For those who are listening to those propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this:

January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress:

AT THE TIME:
* The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77

* The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%

* The Unemployment rate was 4.6%

* George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB CREATION!

REMEMBER THE DAY...
* January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the
House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the
Senate Banking Committee.

The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what
part of the economy?
BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!!!

THANK YOU DEMOCRATS for taking us from 13,000 DOW, 3.5 GDP and 4.6% Unemployment... to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOS!(BTW: Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy).

And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac????
OBAMA

And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie???
OBAMA and the Democratic Congress

So when some one tries to blame Bush...

REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007.... THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!" Bush may have been in the car but the Democrats were in charge of the gas pedal and steering wheel they were driving.

Set the record straight on Bush! Place responsibility where it belongs.

If you really want to stump the progressive parrots on the left asked exactly what policies did Bush push through that caused the crisis.

Several polls have shown that, when responders are asked about individual portions of the health care bill, they always favor it.

They have been convinced by millions of dollars of insurance company lobbying that the health care bill is something it is not.

They say they are in favor of each part of it, but then say they are against the bill, because they don't know what is really in the bill.

Foolishly, opponents say things like "keep your government hands off my social security and MediCare." Social Security and MediCare are government programs. The confusion on this issue, and others, is sad.

I can shoot fish in a barrel...
Your attempt to fool others into believing they support the bill is ludacris.

Selectively pulling out a few of the good things in the bill and ignoring the REALLY BAD things in the bill is myopic.
