Women & Health Care

The White House has released a new "fact sheet" that looks at some pressing issues relating to women's health issues and how the Affordable Care Act will help to address those issues.
The more people learn about the actual law - not the overheated caricature of the law found on certain right wing sites and at Fox News - they are going to see the value in it.
Still, the administration has to understand that for all the good policies in the law, their sales effort needs a human face. They need to find the five year old with a pre-existing condition who had previously been denied coverage and let him become the face of health care reform. Let him do for health care what Ryan White did for AIDS funding. And, not unimportantly, then make it seem like the GOP is not attacking this proposal or that, they are attacking that little boy.
