Skip to comments.Embattled Democratic candidates promise to fix Obamacare
Posted on 01/04/2014 3:00:42 PM PST by lowbridge
For months, Sen. Mary Landrieu had been honing her message on Obamacare in advance of a tough 2014 re-election bid in Republican-leaning Louisiana.
Then, in November, Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group funded by the billionaire Koch Brothers, ran a scathing ad accusing Landrieu of backtracking and avoiding accountability in her support for Obamacare. The ad buy was big and aired widely, and Landrieu's team felt compelled to offer a more full-throated explanation of where she stood on the new health care law.
So Landrieu launched her first ad of the mid-term elections in December nearly a year ahead of election day portraying herself as someone prepared to fix, rather than abandon, the health care law. The ad includes news clips of Landrieu talking about legislation she introduced to allow millions of Americans who had health plans canceled to keep those plans indefinitely.
Im fixing it, and thats what my bill does, and Ive urged the president to fix it, Landrieu said in the ad. Seemingly turning on President Obama, a fellow Democrat, Landrieu added, This is a promise you made, this is a promise you should keep.

Congress is no better than the worst Reality TV program.
Does she explain what her ‘fix’ is? Or will she sign that too, to find out what’s in it later...?
End it, don’t mend it.
To paraphrase Bill Clinton: “End it, don’t mend it.”
Oh, yeah! His name was Vladimir Illyich Lenin.
Ya can’t fix stupid.
It’s a secret fix, much like John Kerry’s secret plan.
Anyone but a LANDRIEU.
She’s fixing it? Really?? How many democrats will vote for her Bill? Has she really brought anything before Congress?? She can SAY anything she wants and the LIV will believe and vote for her. Without concrete action, she has done nothing. Hey Mary, PROVE IT!
She learned to lie from Benghazi Barry.
"Democrat" and "Democratic" have nothing to do with each other.
I believe the RAT Charter says “Democrat Party”.
“Congress is no better than the worst Reality TV program.”
Yeah, every evening I have this conflict, Congressional hearings or Duck Dynasty!
If you like your Senator, you can keep her.
Sorry, the Democrats had their chance...they blew it bigger than life.
She will win re-election because her people vote and Conservatives have better things to do than vote.
