Democrats Run on Opposition to Obamacare
But do they favor repeal?

It's becoming increasingly hard to find anyone who's willing to express support for Obamacare publicly. Politico now reports that three times more money is being spent on anti-Obamacare ads as on pro-Obamacare ads – among Democrats. Overall, the tally is seven to one. Moreover, the movement is strongly in that direction: In May, the overall tally was two-to-one against Obamacare.
The Democrats have subsequently passed a health care overhaul that the pharmaceutical industry supports but which the vast majority of Americans oppose.
Now it's time to make the Democrats who are running anti-Obamacare ads publicly express their support for repeal.
