When it comes to forming a winning message for health care reform, how should Democrats and Republicans in Congress (and President Obama) talk about it, and what should they absolutely stay away from? What messages will go over well with the public, and what could kill health reform?
Recent news reports note that GOP strategist Frank Luntz is cautioning Republicans to avoid going against Obama's efforts because polls show that Americans support health care reform. However, he also advises that Republicans should make a distinction between being for health reform and putting government bureaucrats in charge of health care.
Democratic pollster Celinda Lake, meanwhile, suggests that Democrats can make a case for the public plan and government in health care, but that they need to emphasize the concept of choice.
