Wonder what you would find if you frisked the Democrats’ advertising strategy for the upcoming mid-term election?
Answer: Their self-proclaimed “historic” vote for Obama-Care is nowhere to be found.
Honestly Democrats, what’s wrong with millions of Americans losing their current health insurance? Or the individual mandate that will erode our liberty and increase taxes? Or the fact that it’s not paid for? Or better yet, creating a complex one-size-fits-all health-care system that will eventually centralize America’s health-care decisions in Washington? What could possibly go wrong?
Perhaps that’s why Democrats are avoiding the subject all together – besides the few Democrats who just-so-happen to be running against the new health-care law. Politico reports:
At least five of the 34 House Democrats who voted against their party’s health care reform bill are highlighting their “no” votes in ads back home. By contrast, party officials in Washington can’t identify a single House member who’s running an ad boasting of a “yes” vote — despite the fact that 219 House Democrats voted in favor of final passage in March.
One Democratic strategist said it would be “political malfeasance” to run such an ad now.
Democrats have taken that advice to heart; it appears that no Democratic incumbent — in the House or in the Senate — has run a pro-reform TV ad since April, when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) ran one.
I have one word for Democrats: Meow.
Here’s a suggestion, how about you liberal cowards “man-up” and back your record if Obama-Care is such a great thing for the United States? (Democrats’ reaction: click here) Yeah, that’s what I thought.
