Democrats plan to hammer Republicans over Obamacare in the upcoming 2018 mid-term elections

Oct 2, 2017

Even though Republicans failed to repeal Obamacare, Democrats believe Republicans did enough damage to themselves that Republicans will sink in the polls. Tyler Law, spokesman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said, “I think the message is really simple here: As long as Republicans control Congress, your health care is on the chopping block.” Democrats are planning to argue that if voters keep Republicans in power, millions will be at risk of losing their healthcare. “Every one of our targets in the midterms — every single vulnerable Republican — voters know that their health care is less safe if that person is re-elected. And that is an incredibly strong message that we will carry through the midterm elections,” said Tyler Law. One Republican strategist was not too worried saying, “To me, it’s like everyone has ammo in this fight.” Republicans plan to point out that Obamacare is failing and that Democrats want a single payer program that will cost trillions of dollars. 23 Senate Democrats are defending seats and an additional two independent senators who caucus with the Democrats. Only eight Republicans are defending their seats.
