The progressive coalition Health Care for America Now fought hard to pass health care reform. Now it’s fighting hard to help reelect lawmakers who voted for the bill — even if it means not talking about it.
While polls show that health reform has become slightly more popular since passage, it’s still a polarizing issue, particularly in districts where Republicans and conservative groups have bombarded voters with negative ads.
Now, HCAN’s field crews are finding that the best way to support reform-friendly lawmakers is to talk about something else: jobs, the economy or other issues likely to resonate more with voters.
Yeah, that’s a good idea — re-direct voters’ focus from the Health Care Bill to something more upbeat, like jobs, the economy and “Recovery Summer.”
That’s a little like punching a guy in the face and then trying to calm his anger by changing the subject and making him aware that you also slashed his tires and slept with his wife.
