McConnell: We’ll defeat Obama with repeated attacks on health care

I’m glad the President didn’t make a serious push for the public option, otherwise the Republicans might try to repeal it and deny it funding. Oh wait…

“On health care that means we can – and should – propose and vote on straight repeal, repeatedly,” McConnell will add. “But we can’t expect the president to sign it. So we’ll also have to work, in the House, on denying funds for implementation, and, in the Senate, on votes against its most egregious provisions.”

The administration had better fire whoever is in charge of its messaging, and hire someone who actually knows how to sell things in this town and this country. If they think health care reform is the be all and end all, then prove it to people. Because they haven’t so far. A point we’ve been making for a very long time.
