White House Switches to the Offensive on Obamacare

Or rather, returns to the talking points they had prepared before the site collapsed

|

The White House has shifted from defense to offense on ObamaCare, adopting a much sharper tone with the media while chastising Republicans as wanting to revert to the troubled policies of the past.

The aggressive tactics suggest the White House now sees the best defense of the healthcare law as a swift attack against its critics.

It follows weeks in which the administration was accused of reacting passively, frustrating congressional Democrats worried ObamaCare will cost them their jobs in next year's midterms.

  1. …”The aggressive tactics suggest the White House now sees the best defense of the healthcare law as a swift attack against its critics.”…

    Yeah, that’ll work. Get nasty with people who point out that it’s NWS rather than (try to) fix it.

  2. “the troubled policies of the past”

    compared to what? yes there were problems but the system worked much better than its working now or will in the future.
    The biggest problems began when the federal government got involved with its “programs”.
    The solution always was to allow shopping across state lines and tort reform.
    if there needs to be a “safety net’ It needs to be run by state and local governments – the larger the government administering the program, the more slop waste and abuse in the system.

    1. healthcare also needs to be divorced from employment
