Washington Post, June 1, 2010

In closing the deal on healthcare reform, Democratic leaders assured wavering legislators that the plan would grow more popular with time as its benefits became clear.

But after a brief bump, support for Democratic health reform has declined, writes Michael Gerson in this column published by the Washington Post.
