Invisible Reform

Ohio’s Republican Senate candidate, Rob Portman, goes extremely off-message talking about the GOP’s health care reform plan:

“I will tell you, I don’t think there is a Republican alternative at this point,” he said. He said he reached that conclusion after talking to Senate leaders and lawmakers about the GOP’s position. “There isn’t one,” he said.

You heard it straight from the elephant’s mouth: the Democrats have a health care reform plan and the Republicans don’t. So not only is the GOP the Party of No, they’re also the Party of No Ideas.

But hey, they have talking points. Because there’s the modern GOP for you, putting hollow messaging over real reform.

No wonder these guys are in the minority.
