Healthcare: They're not convincing anyone

The election is seven months away, but for Democratic Rep. Steve Driehaus it may as well be tomorrow.

Surrounded by a cheering crowd at a health clinic in southwestern Ohio, Driehaus is speaking on an issue he and other vulnerable Democrats will have to address every day until November: health care. The freshman lawmaker in a swing district was one the last holdouts to support the bill and now he needs to explain his vote.

"People are going out of business because of the outrageous increases in premiums," Driehaus says at an event packed with supporters of the law. "The biggest thing accomplished by this bill is peace of mind."

As a general rule, if you have to tell everyone how awesome something is, it isn't.
