Obamacare: Is it really political poison?

Posted By on Wed, May 14, 2014 at 1:36 PM

Story lines are important in politics. They tend to get repeated. So check Greg Sargent at the Washington Post, revisiting the notion that Obamacare is pure electoral poison for Democrats, particularly in the South. U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor's recent lead in polls and his insistence on touting the "private option" version of Obamacare in Arkansas as good bipartisan governance at work undergird Sargent's premise that the theory needs a retink to extremist Tom Cotton's view that repeal of Obamacare is a winning theme.

Sargent also mentions David Ramsey's article on the Republican primary fights in Arkansas that will test the Obamcare v. Nobamacare premise on an intraparty basis. Three Senate races could spell the survival of the private option in Arkansas.
