Dear Lord: Democrats Being Urged to Praise ObamaCare on House Floor Both Before and After Votes

Who said this wasn’t a cult? Hell, this sounds like what goes on in North Korea.

After weeks of Republican attacks against the failed ObamaCare rollout, Democrats on Tuesday launched a campaign on the House floor to defend the law by describing how it’s helping constituents.

The effort is being coordinated by House Democratic leaders, who are encouraging Democrats to praise the law, both before and after votes.

And thos who don’t are probably being threatened. That’s how they roll.

A late Monday email from the office of Rep. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) said Democrats need to counter the “negative spin” about ObamaCare in the last few weeks.

“We want to highlight the positive reactions to the law in an effort to drown out some of the negative spin from Republicans and coverage in the media,” that email said.

They need to “drown out” the truth? Oh, sorry, I mean negative spin.

“It is critical that we stay on message, so we are asking all who plan to participate in floor speaking opportunities this week to talk about the ACA [Affordable Care Act].”

Notice they’re not calling it ObamaCare.

Republicans countered by saying the law is proving to be a disaster. Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.) reacted to Courtney’s comment that Republicans are “hysterical” over the law.

“My constituents are hysterical about these broken promises,” Harris said, citing a letter he received saying a man’s son cannot get a job because of the health law.

    Boy do these jerks have nerve. “Spin” typically means that something is being portrayed in some light, whether good or bad, which is not really what it is.

    When something is bad and is called out as bad, it’s not spin.

    They know that there are still people who will buy-in to this freak show. It’s the same people who bought “Yes, We Can” and “Forward.” So talk it up like it’s the best thing ever, even though it’ll destroy us ultimately.
