GOP Reminding Voters of Obama’s Broken Promises
The Obama Administration’s broken promises on Obamacare will play a big role in the GOP’s “I told you so” campaign. Arizona Speaker of the House Andy Tobin this week put up radio ads featuring President Obama saying we could all keep our health insurance plans. Another broken promise. Democrats Sinema, Barber and Kirkpatrick all still support Obamacare, and voters are going to hold them accountable in 2014 for their party’s lies. Real the Roll Call report here.
CNN Poll Puts GOP in the Lead
Obamacare has been every bit the disaster Republicans predicted, and now CNN is acknowledging the impact of Obama’s failures is having on others in his party. While Republicans control the U.S. House, there is a real opportunity for the GOP to become the majority in the U.S. Senate in 2014. Of course we’d all like to add “former” to the title of Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid just like we did to former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after the 2010 election.
