Another Democrat runs political advertisement apologizing for Obamacare

"Another day, another Democratic apology for Obamacare," writes Beth Reinhard at the National Journal today.

Rep. Joe Garcia did not have much of a choice, as the conservative group, Americans for Prosperity has been running attack ads highlighting his support of the Affordable Care Act. So Garcia is working to nip the criticism in the bud, by saying that he wants to "fix" Obamacare in an ad to air in Florida on Wednesday (click on the video to watch).

Garcia's advertisement also says that he "voted to let you keep your health plan," and "took the White House to task for their disastrous health care website."

Far from embracing the embattled Affordable Care Act, Democrats are running away from the health care legislation that they once touted. Considering that under Obamacare, people have lost their health insurance, oftentimes cannot choose their own doctors, and are forced to pay higher premiums and deductibles, it is no surprise.

Neera Tanden, president of the left-wing Center for American Progress said, "You don't want the election to be about Obamacare," as reported by Daniel Greenfield at FrontPageMag. Last year, Tanden bragged, "I helped write the bill," as reported at RealClearPolitics.

Sen. Chuck Schumer isn't too worried, however. He instructed Democrats to focus on "income inequality," a divisive phrase that only reminds people that current policies are pushing people further into poverty.

Schumer told Politico last month,

“Issues like job creation, minimum wage and unemployment insurance are going to weigh on the minds of voters far more than Obamacare by the time the 2014 elections roll around.”

It is unbearable.
