Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour predicts that the GOP will make Obamacare unrecognizable if it doesn’t repeal it completely over the next two years. A GOP win would be a referendum on President Obama, he said, and Republicans would first seek to cut spending next year, according to The Hill.
“They will make such big changes to it over the next three years that you won’t recognize it,” Barbour, the chairman of the Republican Governors Association, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Barbour said he would be “surprised” if Republicans don’t win back the House on Tuesday, though he was less sure about the Senate. A GOP win would be a referendum on President Obama, he said, and Republicans would first seek to cut spending next year.
“If Republicans win, that's what it’ll be, a repudiation of Obama’s policies,” Barbour said.
A potential presidential contender in 2012, Barbour said he would look at the race after the November elections. Kaine dismissed a poll that found nearly half of Democrats wanting to see a primary challenge to Obama in 2012. He said the president would be re-nominated and re-elected.
The thought of a primary challenge from the left prompted Barbour to quip: “Who is there to the left of him?”
