After his stinging defeat in ’10 to Bobby Schilling, Phil Hare said “I know the Republicans are looking at a repeal [of Obamacare]. I think it’s shameful if they ever talk about it.”
Unfortunately for the Philster, Democrats are now dismantling Obamacare right along with Republicans.
“The House of Representatives passed legislation Wednesday afternoon [March 5] to make the fine/”tax” for violating Obamacare’s individual mandate $0 for this year, and it did so by a wide margin of 90 votes (250 to 160)…Moreover 27 Democrats voted for today’s legislation…”
Among those 27 was Cheri Bustos (D-NARAL). The individual mandate was at the heart of Obamacare but now even Democrats are running scared and away from the central tenet of the law.
How will Schilling counter this? Bustos is out GOPing the GOP when it comes to Obamacare.
