We Pay for 'Free' Health Care, Obama Gets the Thanks

As the 2012 election approaches, the mainstream media is crawling back into the tank for their guy. How do I know this? Because of a new round of articles touting the "unappreciated benefits" of President Obama's health-care law. It is an obvious attempt to build support for the unpopular legislation and rehabilitate Obama with the independent voters who have abandoned him.

Exhibit A: the Los Angeles Times just published an op-ed by a lady with the improbable name of Spike Dolomite Ward. She's a California artist (which explains the name, I suppose) who offers her apology to President Obama because she was dissatisfied with ObamaCare until she benefited from one of its provisions, a federally funded program to provide health insurance to people with pre-existing conditions.

Apparently, this is the kind of person Nancy Pelosi had in mind when she said we had to pass the bill so we could find out what's in it. Ward is already being touted as proof that "the public's opposition to the Affordable Care Act is almost entirely the result of a misinformation campaign."
