As Obamacare turns four years old on Sunday, the White House and congressional Democrats are activating "healthcare strike teams" to defend the unpopular health care law on Twitter using the hashtag #healthcare4all.

The Hill reported on Saturday that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is disseminating Obamacare talking points to Democrats and has joined White House staffers in tweeting a series of six Obamacare memes touting the benefits of the unpopular law. Other Democrats, like Rep. Sam Farr (D-CA), joined in the Obamacare birthday party with tweets like: "#ACA is turning 4. To celebrate pick one of the 4 ways to find an affordable plan."

That Democrats need to defend and explain Obamacare's alleged benefits after being the law of the land for four years speaks to Obamacare's deep unpopularity. According to the RealClearPolitics average of polls, just 39% of Americans now support Obamacare. And according to Gallup, President Barack Obama's approval rating is down to just 40%.

Many Democrats, however, will not be publicly celebrating Obamacare's four-year anniversary. As one Democratic member of Congress told the New York Times, President Barack Obama has become "poisonous" to Democrats running in the November midterm elections.

Voters will render judgment on Obamacare when they head to the polls in 226 days.

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?
