The pressure is on for congressional Democrats working to fend off Republican efforts to defund President Obama’s signature health care law — especially now when the public’s approval of the law is is floundering. To that end, Obama’s campaign-turned-advocacy group Organization for Action has released this video ad as part of a reported seven-figure advertising blitz unleashed over the summer.
Hot Air’s Erika Johnson responds:
Hurt job growth and undermine our economic recovery? Hey, you know what else is hurting job growth and undermining our economic recovery much more than anyone’s opposition to ObamaCare? ObamaCare. There is a direct correlation between the endless stream of regulations and wasteful spending coming out of this administration and our pathetically low labor force participation rate and weak economic growth. ObamaCare has caused employers across the country to cut jobs, hours, and benefits before it’s even out of the gate, and the law is still terrifically unpopular with only 12 percent of Americans convinced that it will have a positive impact on their families — but it’s leaving no stone unturned in trying to stop or delay the law that’s the real root of the problem here. Riiight.
Brace yourselves: Obamacare’s health insurance exchanges open for enrollment in just two weeks.
