Strategy on Obamacare: Wishy-Washy Won’t Work

Eugene Robinson recommends an aggressive approach to promoting Obamacare: “Here is what Democrats should learn from their party’s loss in a special House election in Florida last week: Wishy-washy won’t work.”

“Democrats will be better off if they push back hard — really hard — rather than seek some nonexistent middle ground.”

“Democrats facing close contests this fall should play offense on Obamacare, not defense. They should tell voters that the ACA is a landmark achievement — the biggest expansion of access to health care in decades, fulfilling a long-held progressive dream. They should accuse their GOP opponents of playing voters for fools by cynically pretending that repeal is just around the corner.”
