Obamascare tactic probably won’t work in 2014. But GOP will try it anyway.
By Robert Mann
It was an article of faith among some Republicans that President Obama’s reelection was doomed because voters would stampede to the polls in anger over Obamacare. So, how’d that turn out? Election results notwithstanding, Republicans believe Americans hate Obamacare. That presumes, of course, they understand it, which they don’t, because Obama so poorly communicated its provisions. In the House, however, Republicans have voted 40 times to repeal it (even though it was originally their idea).
In the Senate, David Vitter and other conservatives threaten to shutter the government if Obamacare isn’t abolished. Gov. Bobby Jindal cheers them on, although responsible GOP leaders argue that’s a suicide mission to kill their chances of regaining the Senate.
