Washington Post article:

New health-care law raises concerns about respecting providers' consciences

good article

given negative poll results on reform, one of my concerns is that the democratic party is not doing enough to communicate with the public on the advantages of health reform and debunking the myths.  I have some thoughts on this, such as ads by key players on tv, radio, newspapers, among others, and some brief summaries. have not seen much on this.  any thoughts on how I might pursue these concerns at the national level.
