WASHINGTON – Democrats have repeatedly said how proud they are to run and win on ObamaCare next year. However, with the law in shambles, premiums rising, plans canceled, and the website still a technical mess, it won’t be easy. Therefore, the NRCC is distributing a pamphlet to House Democrats and candidates, including Alex Sink, with some advice on how to sell government-run healthcare.
It first informs Sink that she is not alone. Folks like Tom Perriello, Kathy Dahlkemper, and Mark Critz were in this spot years ago. It goes on to suggest ways for her to convince voters why government, not patients and doctors, should be at the center of their healthcare.
“Democrats have repeatedly said they’re looking forward to running on the disaster that is Obamacare in 2014,” said NRCC Communications Director Andrea Bozek. “If Alex Sink thinks that canceled plans and rising premiums are something to be proud of, then we look forward to seeing her on the campaign trail.”
DNC Chairwoman Wasserman Schultz Said Democrats Will Run And Win On ObamaCare In 2014. “Democrats will be able to run on ObamaCare and win in 2014, the party chairwoman’s insisted Friday. Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said the troubled rollout of ObamaCare’s enrollment website, which has frustrated thousands trying to enter the site and bruised the administration, won’t hurt.
