Kimberley Strassel in the Wall Street Journal explores the lack of the response by Republicans to Obama’s health care initiatives.
The president has a plan, and he’s laid it on the table. The industry groups that once helped Republicans beat HillaryCare are today sitting at that table. Unions are mobilized. A liberal umbrella group, Health Care for American Now, is spending $40 million to get a “public option,” a new federal entitlement that would kill off private insurance. Democrats passed a budget blueprint that will allow them to cram through that “public option” with just 51 votes.
Republicans? They’re trying to figure out what they think.
