Framing The Response To GOP Talking Points Re The ACA In 140 Characters Or Fewer

We've been asked to provide some "tweetable" rebuttals to the Republican talking points about The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Here they are:

For those concerned about calling the penalty for failure to become self-insured a "tax," it's important to keep in mind whom we're tarketing with this message: moderates who sometimes think like conservatives and sometimes think like liberals. (Hello all you moderates reading this! We love you!)

For moderates who have already decided this is a "tax," that's okay, we're just putting the "tax" aspect into perspective (and into our own frame!): Public Protection Is Paid For By The Public.

We accept every other "tax" to pay for public services that protect us from potential catastrophe so we don't have to hire our own private contractors to stand guard on our property. It is now the same with healthcare, only better! You actually can hire a private contractor to protect your person if you choose .. even if you don't have the means! And then you don't even have to contribute to the public pool!

But if you prefer to let the public pick up the responsibility for saving you from your "burning house" (your body) when you fall ill, well, the public will have the funds to provide you the necessary services to put out your body fire now. How cool is that? And responsible. Win/Win/Win
