Today the RNC released a t.v. ad hitting Obama on his denials that Obamacare is a tax:
This is probably the best attack that Republicans and Mitt Romney can muster from yesterday’s defeat — and it’s likely to be effective. Whatever boost Obama gets politically from prevailing at the Court will dissipate when people start associating his two-year-long project with a massive tax increase (which it is, to the tune of $1.7 trillion over ten years, according to the CBO).
With the economy foremost among Americans’ concerns, the ad associates government-run health with its ultimate impact: your wallet. But they might take it beyond the wallet, to the economic burden this places on our infrastructure, security, and children’s future. I’m sure that’s to-come.
