Highlighting a survey by NPR & Resurgent Republic, Stan Greenberg and James Carville wrote a clear letter: "Democrats can win the health care argument", I'd argue that Progressives are the ones that will win the argument, not just because someone has a "D" next to their name.
Listen to this part by Stan Greenberg and James Carville:
- "This issue is dynamic. It went from a loser for Democrats to one where it is essentially tied on most measures nationally. Most of the debates in this poll on the basic idea of reform and taxes have achieved parity with the Republican arguments. And Democrats win the argument against repeal and replace by a lot. Republicans are advancing a losing argument and this could still move toward pro-reform positions in the coming months. It is important to talk about health care."
Those who have been talking about healthcare, the progressives, for a long time will really reap the benefits of this public awareness. These findings just prove that the issue of healthcare, that has such broad and life-saving implications of fairness and security for millions of American families, was the morally right thing for progressives to fight for!
- "It is important to prioritize the economy, but we gain by talking about the benefits, the need to make improvements that reduce costs, and above all, the argument that we should not refight the old battles over health care."
Celebrate your victories, Progressives! This law will protect millions directly, make sure they know who to thank. Healthcare was the right fight, But you will not reap the rewards by being a middle of the road "D" and wade in the shallow end of support, you must dive in and prove just how this law was the right thing to do, fixing healthcare is imperative and that Progressives offer the only concrete plans for fixing a clearly broken system!
