These are the same people who insisted Benghazi wasn’t a terrorist attack. But running ads against ObamaCare? Terrorism, obviously. We eagerly await Harry Reid’s next Senate floor jihad against the Koch Brothers in which they are labeled domestic terrorists.
HealthCare.gov’s crash and Obama’s unfulfilled promise that people who liked their healthcare plans could keep them have stoked widespread hostility toward the law.
This has broken Democratic hopes of enacting other parts of Obama’s agenda, and incumbents do not have time for any more “wait and see.”
Republicans have again made Obama-Care their top campaign issue, and are hammering Democratic Sens. Mary Landrieu (La.), Mark Warner (Va.), Mark Pryor (Ark.), Kay Hagan (N.C.) and Mark Begich (Alaska) for their support of the law.
A Democratic strategist who spoke to The Hill on condition of anonymity said ObamaCare has been “terrorized” by millions of dollars in hostile advertisements that have been left unanswered. The counterattack has yet to materialize.
“That’s unfortunate and it’s a big problem,” the operative said. “You have to put some money behind it and that hasn’t been done the last two years and the other side has taken advantage of that. There just hasn’t been a similar effort on our side. That’s really frustrating, and I think Democrats were expecting a better counter-offensive.”
Because the nonstop ads from Team Obama just haven’t done the trick.
