Obamacare: The Comic Book -- Really

Watch your back, Justin Bieber -- there's a new craze sweeping America off its feet.  Introducing the Obamacare comic book:

The MIT economics whiz who crafted President Obama’s national health-care overhaul now plans to explain the complex and controversial plan to the masses — in one long comic book.

Jonathan Gruber, a nationally recognized health economist who devised the economic underpinnings of Obamacare (Gruber hates the term), said his three comic-loving kids encouraged him to use the hip format of the graphic novel — basically an expensive comic published in book form — to tell the story of the complicated plan to 300 million Americans.

Now Gruber is breaking down the president’s 2,400-page legislation into illustrated, bite-sized panels for non-wonks who either don’t understand or don’t like the national plan.



Democrats have long deluded themselves into believing Obamacare's enduring unpopularity is primarily attributable to their own "messaging" shortcomings

Problem solved!

UPDATE:  Rasmussen's latest poll shows Americans' zeal for repeal hasn't dimished, especially among independents.  Cartoons to the rescue.
