The NR­SC “raised $5.1 mil­lion last month, the com­mit­tee’s best off-year Feb­ru­ary fun­drais­ing in the past 16 years.” It has nearly $10.3 mil­lion cash on hand, after tak­ing in $9.3 mil­lion so far this year.

The DSCC has not re­leased its Feb­ru­ary totals. (The Hill)

HEALTH CARE TALK. “For Demo­crats, the polit­ics of health care ‘have flipped,’” said Minor­ity Lead­er Chuck Schu­mer (D-NY).

“It was easy [for Re­pub­lic­ans) to be crit­ic­al of Obama­care when you thought it would stay in place. Now that the chance of re­peal is real, people are much more wor­ried,” Schu­mer said in an in­ter­view. “We are on of­fense and united. They are on de­fense and di­vided, the op­pos­ite of what people would have pre­dicted a month or two ago.”

“In­tern­ally, Sen­ate Demo­crats have de­cided to keep things simple. In­stead of high­light­ing their own solu­tions, the party is merely go­ing to con­cen­trate on the neg­at­ive con­sequences of the GOP’s war on Obama­care.”

“Pub­lic sen­ti­ment is against blow­ing up the Af­ford­able Care Act,” said Sen. Chris Van Hol­len (D-MD), the chair of the DSCC. “That’s go­ing to be­come clear­er and clear­er.” (Politico)
