Dems to GOP: We Dare You to Run on Healthcare Repeal
June 10, 2010
ChattahBox)—The Republicans led by House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH), are still determined to make repealing healthcare reform part of their mid-term campaign strategy. Repealing the bill, is our No. 1 priority, said Boehner. Well, DNC Chairman Tim Kaine, says “Bring it on!” The Democrats are premiering a new national cable TV ad today, highlighting the benefits of the new reform law that are kicking in now, such as the $250 Medicare rebates, to make up for the so-called prescription coverage “donut hole.”
The ad entitled, “We Can’t Afford To Go Back,” points out that Americans finally have healthcare reform, after years of Republican obstruction. And the spot derides Republican solutions to our healthcare system, as a “plan only insurance companies would love.”
The DNC’s Brad Woodhouse, said Democrats plan to target the districts of vulnerable Republican lawmakers, to ensure that their constituents are fully aware of “what they would lose if their members’ effort to repeal reform is successful.”
The ad touting the immediate benefits of the healthcare overhaul, is accompanying a series of town halls for seniors, explaining the new reforms.
