Fresh Attack Angles on Obamacare To Keep Issue Alive
As the GOP opens the legislative year attacking the lack of security surrounding the Obamacare website sign-up process, a broader list of attack angles to be employed by GOP lawmakers is being reported by Politico.
This signals a months-long assault on Obamacare with a panoply of new storylines — and good news for Republicans who rightly believe keeping a primary focus on Obamacare problems, not extraneous issues — is the way to optimize Senate and House pickups in November.
Some of the new angles include attacks on unfair IRS implementation, ongoing confusion with the tax code for individuals, confusion surrounding employers’ responsibilities, and other bureaucratic nightmares sure to occur as the new law in implemented.
The GOP attacks will, by their very nature, require rebuttals and clarifications from the White House and vulnerable 2014 Senate and House Dems doing all they can to avoid talking about Obamacare — thereby guaranteeing it remains a front and center issue back home.
