A growing chorus of conservative Republicans say the current fight over how to reopen the government has little to do with President Obama’s healthcare law, raising new questions about what the GOP wants to end the current fiscal standstill.
Republican officials have insisted for days that they just want a chance to negotiate with Obama and Senate Democrats, in an effort to find a solution that’s currently nowhere in sight.
But with polls showing the GOP bearing the brunt of the blame for the current shutdown, fewer Republicans are demanding that changes to ObamaCare be part of any deal. Some Tea Party-backed lawmakers are even saying that the now five-day old shutdown could actually hurt Republicans chances to roll back the law.
Rep. Dennis Ross (R-Fla.), one of the dozens of House Republicans elected in the wave of 2010, said Saturday that the GOP’s only real chance to get their way on the healthcare law is at the ballot box in 2014.
“If we were just focused on the implementation, the American public would see just how bad it is,” Ross told reporters, pointing to glitches with ObamaCare’s launch this week.
