The Obamacare Campaign Kicks Back in Gear...Again

BERLIN, GERMANY - JUNE 19: U.S. President Barack Obama gives a joint press conference on June 19, 2013 in Berlin, Germany. Obama is visiting Berlin for the first time during his presidency and his speech at the Brandenburg Gate is to be the highlight. Obama will be speaking close to the 50th anniversary of the historic speech by then U.S. President John F. Kennedy in Berlin in 1963, during which he proclaimed the famous sentence: 'Ich bin ein Berliner'. Credit: Getty Images

As delays and frustrations from former supporters have further slowed momentum behind the President's signature healthcare reform law, Obama delivered a speech from the White House Thursday trying to sell the benefits of his plan.

"Every day, across the country and certainly here in the White House, there are people who are working as we speak to implement the Affordable Care Act and to deliver the security of quality, affordable health care to more Americans," Obama said.

The plan received another blow late Wednesday as the Republican controlled-House voted, with the help of some Democrats, to delay both the employer and individual mandates of Obamacare.

With the President's renewed enthusiasm to argue his reforms from the stump and his followers planning a large campaign renew public support for the law, the "Real News" panel Thursday discussed the ongoing politics of Obamacare.  How do conservatives combat a feel-good campaign message about the helping hand of government with a more boring but more important reality about economic destruction? Watch the team debate below.
