(Video) New RNC ad: Another Broken Promise - ObamaCare Is A TaxTopics:
The RNC has realeased a new one-minute ad intended for television that shows all of the denials from Barack Obama and other Democrats that ObamaCare was a tax, and reminds everyone that the Court now confirms that Obama broke his promise to the middle class ... and lied about it:
As Ed Morrissey aptly notes, this is probably the best attack that Republicans and Mitt Romney can muster from yesterday's SCOTUS defeat, and it's likely to be effective.
Whatever boost Obama gets politically from prevailing at the Court will dissipate when people start associating his two-year-long project with a massive tax increase (which it is, to the tune of $1.7 trillion over ten years, according to the CBO). The RNC doesn't mention another point in this ad, although I'll bet they do in later spots: when Americans left the workforce by the millions in despair over a lack of job creation in 2009 and 2010, Barack Obama spent his time focused not on job creation but on raising taxes on the middle class.Meanwhile, Mitt Romney's campaign says 42,000 donations worth $4.2 million has been raised since the decision came out, and Team Obama resorts to hijacking wedding registries and hawking "BFD" t-shirts.
