As he continues to deal with the fallout of revelations that he sponsored bills in the legislature that contained provisions similar to the Affordable Care Act, Rep. Bill Cassidy’s (R-06) office put out a statement on Thursday criticizing the Obama administration for spending $12 million to advertise for the law. Cassidy: “Good policy is good politics. If Obamacare were good policy it would sell itself without increasing our debt by spending millions of dollars to promote it.” (release)
That’s one of Cassidy’s most forceful statement on the law to date, and it marks a shift in tone for a campaign that’s been relatively easygoing so far. But Cassidy’s statement also serves as a reminder of his own health care legislation, which he has yet to specifically address.
