Young Launches Early Attack on Obamacare

Thursday night, Todd Young came out with this ad during the Republican Presidential Debate on CNN.  It's the first ad for the Senate seat Dan Coats intends to vacate come 2017 and the first ad of the 2016 season for Young.

It's not a particularly strong ad.  It also identifies something that's going to be nearly impossible to do as one of Young's top priorities: repeal Obamacare.

As much as Republicans keep trying to do it, the Affordable Care Act is going to be law.  Time after time, Republicans have been trying to get the votes to repeal the legislation, and it just hasn't happened.  Besides, too many Americans are now dependent on the coverage.  To pull it now without anything to replace it would be foolish and bad policy.  Plus, unless the Republicans pull 60 votes in the U.S. Senate, it's just not going to happen.

Thus, this was wasted money for Young spent well too far in front of the election cycle for many to remember.
