With President Barack Obama telling fellow Democrats Thursday they "should forcefully defend and be proud" of the Affordable Care Act, at least one Republican is cheering them on.
"I hope they take the president's advice," Sean Spicer, communications director for the Republican National Committee, said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union."
Democratic Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu produced an ad
in December distancing herself from Obamacare, and politcal analyst Stuart Rothenberg, agreed that defending the unpopular Obamacare is a "dangerous game" for vulnerable Democrats in red states.
Mo Elleithee, communications director for the Democratic National Committee, put a happier face on the issue for his side, saying that the only places that anyone believes Obamcare is the top issue among voters are at RNC headquarters, the National Republican Congressional Committee headquarters and the National Republican Senatorial Committeee headquarters.
"You guys and your consultants are the only ones," Elleithee said.
"I really hope you believe that's true," Spicer responded, saying that such an attitude from Democratic strategists will put Republicans in control of both the House and Senate in November's midterm elections.
