The truth hurts...

... and doesn't poll very well either.

Democratic strategists commissioned focus groups, polls and researches to carve out strategies for the upcoming mid-term elections. Here's what they found:

The researchers found what they call a "challenging environment," which is a nicer way of saying "disaster in the making." Voters simply aren't buying the Democratic case that health care reform will insure more than 30 million currently uninsured people and save money at the same time. And when they think about their own health care, people worry that reform will mean less, not more, availability of care, and at a higher cost.

Faced with that bad news, the pollsters came up with several recommendations for Democratic candidates. When talking about Obamacare, Democrats should "keep claims small and credible." They should promise to "improve" the law. They should avoid talking about policy and stick to "personal stories" of people who will benefit from Obamacare. And above all, the pollsters advise, "don't say the law will reduce costs and deficit."

(italics, ours)

For the love of god, don't dare utter the very two points we sold the public on in order to slam this thing through!

Republicans should be in no need of focus groups or researchers - thanks to horrendous governance, this isn't rocket science:

1) The economy
2) ObamaCare
3) Process
