The birth of a new Dem talking point.
WASHINGTON — Senate Democrats on Wednesday predicted that Obamacare would not be a problem for their Democratic colleagues facing re-election this year.
“Over the next several months, the ACA is going to become less important as a Republican campaign issue,” said New York Sen. Chuck Schumer at a press conference, “because more and more Americans, from young adults all the way up through seniors, are realizing the benefits it has to offer.”
“In addition,” he added, “the parade of horrible stories trotted out by the haters of this bill have proved not to be true.”
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made a similar claim on the Senate floor Wednesday morning, saying “all” of the “horror stories” told by Republicans were “untrue.”
