Landrieu touts ObamaCare fix

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) is tackling issues with ObamaCare with her first ad of her reelection fight, which seeks to distance herself from the president.

The ad, which is backed by a $250,000 buy, touts a bill she produced that would allow Americans to keep their insurance under ObamaCare.

Obama's now-erroneous promise that people could keep their plans if they liked them has become a major thorn in the sides of vulnerable Democrats as news reports have revealed thousands of Americans losing their coverage as the law takes effect.

The ad features a trio of clips of Landrieu urging the president to fix the law, interspersed with news clips touting her work on the fix.

"I'm fixing it and that's what my bill does and I've urged the president o fix it," she says in one clip.

In another, she says to Obama: "This is a promise that you made, this is a promise that you should keep."

It's an attempt from the Landrieu campaign to distance the candidate from a deeply unpopular president and what's widely believed to be one of the biggest flubs of his presidency, the botched rollout of the Affordable Care Act.

Multiple polls in recent weeks have shown Obama's popularity at an all-time low, and Republicans taking the lead over Democrats in the House and Senate.
