"The GOP's Self-Defeating 'Defunding' Strategy"
The desire to strike at ObamaCare is praiseworthy. But any strategy to repeal, delay or replace the law must have a credible chance of succeeding or affecting broad public opinion positively.
The defunding strategy doesn't. Going down that road would strengthen the president while alienating independents. It is an ill-conceived tactic, and Republicans should reject it.I agree absolutely. It would be far better, as noted here previously, to try to delay it. There's ample precedent. And who could object to delaying just another year? Then one more year. And then another year . . .
