Much is being made about the manner in which Republican conservatives are trying to stop health care insurance reform, by selling fear, by making you afraid of it. "Death panels, euthanasia." "They'll kill your grandmother."
But what are Obama and company selling? "Costs will continue to rise." "Pretty soon you will be paying half your income for health insurance." "You can lose your insurance if you lose your job." Democrats are trying to make you afraid not to do it.
Whatever happened to the kind of leadership that says, "We need to step up and be the great nation that we claim to be."
