Washington, D.C. – ObamaCare is a train wreck; so much so that the Obama Administration – in unprecedented fashion – last week delayed the implementation of a key provision in the law, the employer mandate, until 2015 (conveniently just months after the midterm elections). Selective implementation of the law aside, where does Bruce Braley – who spent the last four years championing ObamaCare stand today? Week after week, families, workers and businesses learn more about the disastrous implications that ObamaCare will have upon them and the economy. Bruce Braley didn’t care.
Now that the ObamaCare reality is far from Bruce Braley’s promise of “legislation [that] will provide much-needed relief for thousands of businesses,” he’s silent.
After four years of celebrating ObamaCare, Washington Democrats face a choice of two political evils ahead of the 2014 midterms: implement the train wreck or, delay it – and desperately try to protect weak Senate candidates from the political backlash over the taxes, fees, mandates and penalties scheduled to take effect the same year voters will head to the polls.
In hopes of pulling their trial attorney pal Bruce Braley up to the Senate, Washington Democrats have chosen the latter. And after his now ludicrous assessment of ObamaCare, it’s no wonder Bruce Braley seems so uncertain.
“If Bruce Braley was a man of his word, he’d be up-in-arms that ObamaCare, which he promised would help families and businesses, is being delayed,” said NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen. “Bruce Braley ignored experts and constituents who warned that ObamaCare would hurt the middle class by raising costs, not allow people to keep the care that they have if they like it, and be a bureaucratic nightmare that hurts small businesses. Now even Democrats are beginning to recognize the law is a train wreck. The fact is that the only way to dismantle ObamaCare is by electing a Republican Majority – not Bruce Braley.”
