What does Obamacare have in common with a soft drink and a ‘70’s compact car? According to Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., all three are outright “mistakes,” the Washington Times reports.
Rubio hit Obamacare hard on the floor of the Senate Tuesday, comparing it to marketing flops like New Coke and the Ford Pinto.
Editor's Note: ObamaCare Is About to Strike Are You Prepared?

“What did Coca-Cola do when New Coke began to flounder?,” Rubio asked. “They didn’t say, ‘Well, we’re just gonna continue to make more of it.’ They backed away from it. In the real world, Ford stopped producing Pintos.”
Rubio questioned the administration’s thinking in pursuing Obamacare.
“With all these problems why would anyone want to continue with this failed experiment?,” Rubio asked. “Only in Washington do people double down on their mistakes.”
