The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) is turning up the heat on vulnerable Senate Democrats who are now running away from Obamacare after a disastrous rollout and millions of insurance cancellations with a devastating new video.
The minute long video begins with one of the instances in which President Obama promised Americans that they would be able to keep their health plans under Obamacare. It then shifts to news coverage of the insurance cancellations that people are experiencing because of the law.
The video then goes to show some vulnerable Senate Democrats — Sens. Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Mark Begich (D-AK), and Kay Hagan (D-NC) — repeating the same false promise made by President Obama, which was part of the campaign to deceive Americans on Obamacare.
Not only did these vulnerable senators lie to Americans about the law, they tacitly approved the narrowly written regulations responsible for the insurance cancellations in September 2010 when they voted against a resolution that would have rejected them. That’s why the panic from these Democrats over the law is so strange. They ostensibly endorsed the cancellations and constantly voted protect Obamacare.
Re-electing the same people responsible for Obamacare on the promise that they will “fix Obamacare,” whatever that means, may be too far a proposition for voters in their home states. Landrieu, Pryor, Begich, and Hagan already had that chance, and they missed it.
