Description

Political momentum has shifted so fast over the last week that it has given Republicans whiplash. Democrats are heading into the two-week Easter recess in high spirits after passing the most sweeping domestic policy reform since Medicare was enacted four decades ago. President Barack Obama on Thursday dared Republicans to make healthcare reform a campaign issue. “They’re actually going to run on a platform of repeal in November,” Obama said. “Well, I say go for it.” But even as some Republicans talk of using healthcare as a cudgel, others are questioning the hard-line opposition strategy that limited their input on the substance of healthcare reform and may deny them any chance of shaping financial regulatory reform later this year.
