Christie says "not even Democrats" would have passed law if they'd known truth.
Americans for Prosperity, a conservative outside group backed by the Koch brothers, is launching a $4 million ad blitz attacking six vulnerable Democrats on ObamaCare.
The ads attack three senators and three congressmen for the program's disastrous rollout and accuse them of breaking voters' trust. All use female narrators and are aimed at persuading women voters.
The targets: Sens. Mark Begich (D-Alaska), Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and Kay Hagan (D-N.C.), and Reps. Ron Barber (D-Ariz.), Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) and Patrick Murphy (D-Fla).
Democrats believe the outcome of the Louisiana 5th district special election indicates Sen. Mary Landrieu (D) can use ObamaCare as an advantage in her reelection fight.
Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) said in op-ed that he warned all along that ObamaCare wouldn't work.
YG Network, a conservative advocacy group with ties to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), is out with another round of web ads parodying the company behind the ObamaCare website, as Republicans dig into Democrats for the site's glitchy rollout.
American Crossroads, the Karl Rove-backed super PAC, is launching a series of paid web ads hitting three vulnerable incumbent Democratic senators with the erroneous claim made by the White House that Americans could keep their current coverage under the health care law if they preferred it.
Conservative groups are piling on ObamaCare's struggles ahead of a congressional grilling of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, releasing new polls and web ads to push for a delay in the law's requirement that all individuals buy health insurance or pay a penalty.
Americans for Prosperity, a well-funded conservative group backed by the Koch brothers, is launching a major ad campaign attacking two vulnerable Senate Democrats on ObamaCare.
The federal government won't shut down again because of ObamaCare, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Thursday. McConnell told The Hill that there's nothing to be gained from another shutdown in January, when the federal government's funding is set to expire again.
“One of my favorite old Kentucky sayings is there’s no education in the second kick of a mule. The first kick of a mule was when we shut the government down in the mid-1990s and the second kick was over the last 16 days,” McConnell said. “There is no education in the second kick of a mule. There will not be a government shutdown.
“I think we have fully now acquainted our new members with what a losing strategy that is,” he added.
Rep. John Fleming (R-La.) said Monday that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius should lose her job because of problems with the rollout of ObamaCare.
"Secretary Sebelius has been a governor and a state insurance commissioner; she must know better," Fleming said in a statement. "She was warned repeatedly by all of us who called for a one-year delay of Obamacare’s implementation and taxes to prevent this chaos. Now, it’s time for her to resign or be fired.”
Fleming joins Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), who called for Sebelius's resignation last week.
