Leaked Memo: National GOP Tells Daines How to Scare Voters, Act Like He Cares — Because Republicans cannot win on the merits of their positions, they have to do things like this.
Tom Coburn: Campaign to defund Obamacare ‘dishonest,’ ‘hype’ — Republicans, having failed to win control of the White House and Senate in 2012, do not have the votes to cut off Obamacare funding. Given that, he sees the defunding proposal as not just wrongheaded but also an effort to mislead conservatives across the country who long to see Republicans stop Obamacare. Weird. Coburn is such a GOP fruit loop that it’s odd to see him being realistic. And as every conservative knows, providing cost-effect access to healthcare for more Americans than ever is profoundly unpatriotic and destructive to our national interests. Or at least destructive to GOP electoral interests.
