Health Care Reform: Still a Hot Potato

Politico has a great piece today on the fact that the health care reform law enacted last year remains a source of great contention among the electorate.
The Obama Administration has done a very poor job promoting the new law.
They need to put a face on this reform. They need to find a five year old who had been denied coverage for a pre-existing condition but who now has that coverage because of the law. As I have pointed out previously, when America was introduced to Ryan White, the entire debate about AIDS funding changed. The Obama Administration needs to find their Ryan White for this new law. Not five faces. Not policy explanations. Not out-year deficit projections. A Human face.
