OFA ad: “Enough already” with the ObamaCare opposition, silly Republicans

posted at 1:21 pm on September 16, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

President Obama’s campaign-turned-”advocacy” arm Organizing for Action has apparently been busying itself this summer with organizing poorly attended rallies concerning such political duds as climate change and gun control, but their most mainstream effort has gone toward helping the Obama administration with the oncoming “soft launch” of the Affordable Care Act by spreading the news about how totally awesome the whole thing is. They’ve already run a series of pro-ObamaCare commercials this summer as part of a seven-figure ad buy, but this latest ad out today pivots slightly to the current budget battle and attempts to rip Republicans for even thinking of involving ObamaCare as part of the fight:

Forty times. That’s how often a group of Republicans have voted against Obamacare just to prove their allegiance to their party’s right wing. Okay, they’ve said their piece. But now they’ve gone even further, threatening to shut down the government if ObamaCare isn’t dismantled. It could disrupt Social Security and veterans’ benefits, hurt job growth and undermine our economic recovery. Tell these House Republicans: Enough already.

Hurt job growth and undermine our economic recovery? Hey, you know what else is hurting job growth and undermining our economic recovery much more than anyone’s opposition to ObamaCare? ObamaCare. There is a direct correlation between the endless stream of regulations and wasteful spending coming out of this administration and our pathetically low labor force participation rate and weak economic growth. ObamaCare has caused employers across the country to cut jobs, hours, and benefits before it’s even out of the gate, and the law is still terrifically unpopular with only 12 percent of Americans convinced that it will have a positive impact on their families — but it’s leaving no stone unturned in trying to stop or delay the law that’s the real root of the problem here. Riiight.

I think these leftists really do believe that any victory on their part should be permanent while any victory on the right should be quickly fought or declared raaaaaaaccccccist.

It’s so good everyone in DC wants out of it. Many corporations bought out of it and the unions want out. It’s so good employers redefined jobs to part time positions and let people go to avoid the costs.yeah totally awesome

‘It’s the law…Enough already!’

Like ‘It’s the law!’ stopped the Left when the statement was true of DADT & DOMA.

Another direct appeal to the low information voter – an advert loaded with low information and other assorted misrepresentations.

So, low information voters – how are your job prospects? You keeping your health insurance or dr? How are your wages doing – able to survive with the cut from 40 hours to under 30 courtesy of the (Un)Affordable Care Act? or are you one of the 90 million plus who dropped out of the labor pool? Or perhaps one of the 48 million on food stamps – more than the entire population of Spain? Perhaps you’re one of the more than 13 million on disability – more than the entire population of Greece.

Ah, that’s right, let’s give up on liberty, personal accountability and responsibility, because its hard….it’s far better to let the government control things. That’s worked so well elsewhere.

What we are dealing with here with ObamaCare and overall the last 5 years under this regime,

Trickle-down dumba$$.

Gird your loins…..hit pieces coming this week and next on Mike Lee and Ted Cruz.

The left thinks The Constitution was a mistake. They think the Magna Carta went too far.

Right on the heels of the headline thread about Congress exempting itself from this disaster.

So you lefties, tell me, how do you feel about your reps running like hell from a plan they told us was the greatest invention since the wheel?

Bishop on September 16, 2013 at 1:35 PM

Tell these House Republicans: NOT Enough already.

Fixed …

Bishop on September 16, 2013 at 1:35 PM

And the unions. Don’t leave them out. Any Democrat constituency group with any clout is also clamoring for an exemption from the royal court.

gwelf on September 16, 2013 at 1:39 PM

“seperate but equal” healthcare.

Just like seperate but equal pensions, insider trading rules, loan repayments and tax reporting.

acyl72 on September 16, 2013 at 1:41 PM

Many Democrats now hate the Obamacare that ate the 40-hour work week.

22044 on September 16, 2013 at 1:41 PM

Said their piece?

Try “peace” you ignorant fools.

Jeez, 57 states, corpsemen . . .

These idiots can’t read. No wonder they vote Democrat.

“Enough already”

Close, but no cigar…

The correct phrase is:

Taxed Enough Already

ITguy on September 16, 2013 at 1:53 PM

Conservatives need to release an ad, also entitled “Enough Already,” featuring the mile-long list of entities that have gotten waivers or other protections against this mess from the regime.

“Enough with the exemptions. Enough with the waivers. Enough with two sets of rules.”

CurtZHP on September 16, 2013 at 1:57 PM

Since when is 63% of the Country Republican!

PappyD61 on September 16, 2013 at 1:33 PM

Pappy, they are opposed to O-care; for themselves. So long as they have secured theirs from the federal trough, they couldn’t care less about the rest of us. They are the same in that regard as then Dems. In fact, I no longer call them RINOs but Republicrats. All hail the ‘Ruling Class’.

part of a seven-figure ad buy

A seven-figure ad buy (i.e. $1,000,000 to $9,999,999) is peanutes on a national scale – even in just some major markets.

The actual figure is a ten-figure buy – $1,000,000,000+ – which is how much is being spent to push obamacare. That makes obamacare the nation’s third-largest advertiser, right up there with AT&T ($1.59 billion) and Verizon ($1.43 billion) and bumping Chevrolet (a mere 0.958 billion) down to fourth place.

It’s bad enough when the left practices fact-free reporting; our side should know enough to do better.

“If it’s so great why did they exempt themselves and their staff from it?”

I have yet to get an answer from any lib I asked. I believe it has stopped the conversation every time.

DanMan on September 16, 2013 at 2:07 PM

Call their bluff.

If it’s not a bluff…

Shut it down!
Guess what. Govt shuts down every weekend and the earth doesn’t come to an end.

OFA, Obama and Pelosi live in an alternate universe.

GarandFan on September 16, 2013 at 2:35 PM

They may be too clever by half. If between now and the next election Obamacare starts putting the crimp on more and more people, this could become an ad for the GOP. “The GOP has voted 40 times to stop Obamacare and been blocked by the democrats. Meanwhile the president’s cronies and Congress get to escape the pain. Help end Obamacare once and for all, vote republican.”

Thought we went over this during the last shutdown threat?

Entitlement checks are NOT affected by the shutdown.

And “hurt job growth and slow our economic recovery”? Are you serious? Like it could be any worse?

Typical left wing pack of lies from the 1st sentence to the last.
