Krauthammer: Losing Your Plan ‘Hurts You in a Way That Losing on an Abstract Issue Doesn’t’
The Republican Party scored its first major victory of 2014 last night when David Jolly beat Alex Sink to fill a vacant Florida House seat.
So what does this GOP win mean? Charles Krauthammer was on “Hannity” tonight to discuss it.
“This is a very important victory for Republicans, and it was a very important indicator of what’s gonna dominate the midterm elections,” Krauthammer said.
He said many Democratic candidates are now rethinking their stance on ObamaCare.
“You lose your plan, you lose your doctor – that hurts you in a way that losing on an abstract issue doesn’t. And that’s why they’re in such trouble over this – there’s no way to run away from this,” he said.
Obama recently suggested that families may be spending too much on their cable and cellphone bills instead of ObamaCare.
“He’s stepping into your living room, he’s stepping into your kitchen table, and saying you’re overspending here and there, and this is why I say it’s the embodiment of this hyper-liberalism. It’s the perfect example, it’s as if Republicans couldn’t have invented something that would be more demonstrative of what this kind of nanny-state liberalism is about,” Krauthammer said.
