Oh My: White House Wants Democrats To Campaign On Obamacare

In about two weeks or so, think back to this article by The Hill when Obamacare has disappeared from mention by Democrats and the White House. They will not want to campaign on Obamacare, much like they conveniently forgot that they passed Obamacare in the runup to the historic beatdown in 2010

The White House is encouraging congressional Democrats to go on the offensive after the Supreme Court upheld the president’s signature healthcare legislation Thursday, urging members on the campaign trail to “illustrate how the President and Democrats in Congress are standing up for the middle class.”

The memo, written by White House senior adviser David Plouffe and sent to the House and Senate Democratic caucuses, says the party should be happy to debate Republicans on taxes.

Oh, yes, please, let’s have a debate over the taxes in Obamacare. We’d love to see how Democrats spin a massive tax increase on the middle class.

“After over a decade of watching the security of the middle class erode, Republicans in Congress are determined to return to the exact same policies that led to the economic crisis,” Plouffe argues. “The President refuses to settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a growing number of Americans barely get by.”

What Plouffe is saying is that you should trade taxes for a (fictional) bit of health security. Even though most Americans already have health insurance. I suppose he thinks that it is good for people with health insurance to pay much more of their earned income to prop up a piece of legislation that is highly unpopular.

I wasn’t aware of a lack of health insurance leading to the current economic problems. That’s a new one. Though I do have to wonder if that quote was taken out of context by the Hill. It doesn’t seem to fit. But, then, Democrats do like to spew talking points that often make you wonder if you’re have the same conversation quite often.

    YEs, because illegals dont have gov’t approved health insurance, our economy suffers.

    Now, if we’d not have illegals, then our economy would be better?

    That’s easy to fix.

    Oh what a difference one week makes:
    1. Romney now slipping, Obama gaining, in the polls.
    2. ObamaCare Ruling is particularly problematic for Romney.
    3. ObamaCare Ruling plays particularly to Palin’s strengths.
    ROMNEY NEEDS PALIN TO SHORE THE BASE AND ARTICULATE OPPOSITION TO OBAMA!!!
    (Romney/Palin ’12 or else Romney’s going down to defeat)
