Can't blame it all on the DFHs.

When this is your biggest legislative accomplishment, it's a problem:

As the US Supreme Court prepares to review President Barack Obama's healthcare reforms, more Americans want to it repealed than want to keep it, a poll released Wednesday shows.

A Gallup survey of more than 1,000 U.S. adults found that 47 percent favor the repeal of healthcare reform, versus 42 percent who want the law kept in place. Eleven percent had no opinion.

It was a given that the GOP was going to make shit up and scream SOCIALISM! -- so you needed to counter that with something everyone could a) clearly understand and b) really wanted.

Not enough people understand what the bill does, or how it helps them. As Atrios says, it's a Rube Goldberg device.
