Jennifer Stefano: Obamacare Fight Must Begin at 'Street Level'

By    |   Friday, 23 Aug 2013 05:03 PM

Forget about defunding Obamacare — the better way to get rid of the Affordable Care Act is to show Americans how the law negatively affects their lives, Jennifer Stefano of Americans for Prosperity says.

"[We’re] going door to door with our activists . . . talking about how this law affects our lives as a wife, as a mother, as a worker, and what it really means for the future," Stefano told Charles Payne, guest host of "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"And that is where we're winning. We're winning not just conservatives . . . not just tea partiers . . . we're winning moderate Democrats and others."

She said her conservative political advocacy group based in Arlington, Va., is basically copying President Barack Obama’s strategy of getting out into neighborhoods and selling ideas.

"They're very shrewd at this, they're out knocking door to door, talking about enrolling people in Obamacare and really playing up the benefits in a door-to-door fight," she said.

"While there might be one or two things that are positive about Obamacare, that's about three pages of a 2,700-plus-page bill and I've got . . . to make the connection."

Stefano likened the different ways to fight Obamacare with the decisions Gen. Dwight Eisenhower made during World War II when he mulled the best plan to launch a D-Day invasion and storm Europe.

"In order to take the continent, he had to go in and invade France and he had to liberate Paris first. One … [way] was up from the south through Marseilles, and amphibious landing that way, and the other way was from the north through Normandy Beach," she said.

"Overall, it didn't matter because the end goal was liberating Paris, freeing France, and winning the war. He just had to decide which approach was the best. He chose Normandy. The work I'm doing, and other grassroots activists, is storming Normandy Beach."

Stefano added that the idea of defunding Obamacare on Capitol Hill not a generally wrong principle. Just let's focus on where the fight is at.

"Don't storm a hill and die on it to find out nobody's at the top. The fight is on the street level."
