Democrats have thrown everything at Obamacare including Alex Sink. She felt Obamacare was fixable. But the Democratic candidate for Florida’s 26th Congressional District lost yesterday. And she’s not the only Democrat running on a “we can fix it” (with no solutions) campaign. Stay tuned as Cato’s Michael Tanner observes:
The same purposeful vagueness can be found in Kentucky where Allison Lundgren Grimes, who is seeking to oust Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), allows that she is “concerned with some aspects of health reform.” Beyond her “concern,” the only fix she offers is to delay the employer mandate for a year. That’s a pretty risk-free position since President Obama has already delayed it for longer than that.
Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.), considered by many observers to be the most endangered Democratic Senate incumbent, has been aggressive about challenging Republicans for their lack of ideas about how to replace the Affordable Care Act. He recently challenged his opponent to “put your money where your mouth is….You’re identifying all these things, let’s go ahead and try to fix them.” Yet, neither Pryor’s Senate page nor his campaign page even mentions the Affordable Care Act, let alone offers any proposal to fix it.
