  •  AR-Sen; NC-Sen; LA-Sen - "if you like your plan, (0+ / 0-)

    you can keep it".

    If the GOP and its outside groups are continuing to run millions of dollars of ads hitting vulnerable Senate Dem candidates in red states with that "if you like your plan, you can keep it" Obama (inaccurate / false / whatever - you be the judge) reassurance to get the ACA passed into law, they must have polling showing that that moves voters.

    NC and LA ads have been running against Hagan and Landrieu for months on that theme.  I have heard them in travels to both states and they are brutal.

    Harry Reid needs to bring the Landrieu bill up for a vote in the Senate so the vulnerable Senate Dems can go on the record supporting the fix to the "if you like your plan, you can keep it" screwup and putting some actual political distance between themselves and that Obama statement.

    The ACTUAL number of people hurt by this inaccuracy may be small but the PERCEIVED number may be much larger - helping the GOP messaging.
