Within seconds of the United States Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act subsidies, the GOP released this attack ad. Don’t worry, Republicans, at least you now have Obamacare to treat the burn from SCOTUS.
But what GOP attack ad would be complete without firing shots at Hillary? In the ad, Republicans shift the blame for healthcare reform from President Barack Obama to Hillary Clinton in preparation for the 2016 presidential election.
In the 1990s, during the Clinton administration, Hillary was a strong proponent for healthcare reform. The ad flashes images of Hillary during a committee hearing supporting these reforms, while superimposed with quotes from Obama praising the Clintons for their involvement in the bill’s roots.
#SCOTUSCare Decision Puts Republicans on the War Path
Republicans have tried and failed over 55 times to repeal Obamacare in the U.S. House of Representatives and it may look like the odds are against them after this Supreme Court ruling. But the fight isn’t over, especially as we head into the 2016 presidential elections.
Jeb Bush stated that he was “disappointing by the ruling.” He asserted, “As President of the United States, I would make fixing our broken healthcare system one of my top priorities.”
Scott Walker stated, “Today’s #SCOTUSCare ruling means Republicans must redouble their efforts to repeal and replace this destructive and costly law.”
