Republicans On the Offensive Concerning Obamacare

Republicans aren't letting us forget the abomination of Obamacare, and well they shouldn't.

Senate Republicans are poised to try to reignite the health care debate by launching a coordinated political messaging offensive to target Democrats and the White House for what they contend are the new law’s onerous consequences.

A group of Republican Senators who played key roles in the yearlong fight over health care legislation met Thursday in Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (Ky.) office to discuss the strategy. Under the slogan “second opinion,” Republicans plan to communicate their message on multiple fronts, including on the Senate floor, in press conferences, via the Internet and through television and radio appearances.

A Republican Senate aide described the effort as intended “to draw attention to the consequences of the health care law that the White House hopes people miss.”

It's important to remind people of the horrendous effects of Obamacare, since most of them aren't poised to kick in until after Obama's re-election (or ouster, we hope). We're already seeing some of what was in the bill that Democrats didn't want us to see, but Americans must be reminded right up to November that Democrats passed this legislation even though a majority of Americans didn't want it.
