Will health reform be an issue in the elections this fall?
According to Democrats, it will be… as a positive, as a way to draw a favorable contrast with those who opposed reform and now seek to repeal it. Here’s a new TV ad from the Democratic Party that puts the case starkly:
In California, where the Field Poll confirmed that supporting health reform is the majority position, it will be interesting to see if those Congressional Representatives that opposed health reform will embrace the “repeal and replace” agenda, or if they hedge their opposition. This will be most interesting to see any evolution of opition for the Republicans running for statewide office–gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman and Senate candidate Carly Fiorina–who have previously endorsed “repeal” positions.
