Jim Demint on the road to defund Obamacare

Conservatives were right to fight Obamacare this month even if we didn’t get everything we wanted, Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint writes in the Wall Street Journal:

Forget the consultants, the pundits and the pollsters; good policy is good politics. If the Republicans had not fought on ObamaCare, the compromise would have been over the budget sequester. Instead, they have retained the sequester and for the past three months ObamaCare and its failings have been front and center in the national debate. Its disastrous launch was spotlighted by our defund struggle, not overshadowed, as some contend. With a revived and engaged electorate, ObamaCare will now be the issue for the next few years.

Obamacare is economically unstable, financially irresponsible, and harmful to hardworking Americans. This is why we fought so hard to get Washington to listen to the American people and take action to stop Obamacare.
