Foes Launch Nationwide Anti-Obamacare Campaign

Ad Feedback

Although members of Congress are on summer break, many expect to get an earful about Obamacare when they visit their home districts.

As an October budget deadline approaches, opponents are ramping up a nationwide campaign to defund Obamacare.

The commercial, sponsored by the Young Guns Network, features a group of ad execs trying to figure out how to sell Obamacare to Americans.

Meanwhile, a new Tea Party Patriots poll found that 66 percent of likely voters agree Congress should defund the Affordable Care Act, while 26 percent disagree, Breitbart News reported.

Eight-six percent of Republican respondents say it should be defunded, and 48 percent of Democrats agreed.

Even a Washington Post-ABC News poll found that moderate Democrats are starting to turn against Obamacare. Only 46 percent support it today compared with 57 percent last year.

And Freedom Works is launching a campaign urging supporters to burn their Obamacare card.

But Obamacare opponents aren't the only ones trying to rally their forces.

Organizing for Action, formerly part of President Obama's presidential campaign, is spending more than $1 million defending the health care law.

Critics of the plan say small businesses are already reducing worker's hours because they can't afford to provide them with costly insurance. They say this means Obamacare will create a part-time American labor force.

Only nine legislative days will remain once Congress returns from recess, so passing a new budget by Oct. 1 may be unrealistic.

Most Capitol Hill observers expect a vote on another continuing resolution to keep the federal government running -- and Obamacare temporarily funded.
