The latest shameful right-wing lie about Obamacare: Babies aren't covered. Sean Hannity let a right-wing activist claim that Obamacare rejected his daughter when he actually failed to list her on his insurance application.

I think it may be time to ask if Democrats are putting the cart before the horse. Are we missing a key part of the equation that must be met before people come out in support of the party?
