Republicans Divided on Obamacare Strategy

David Drucker: "To repeal or dismantle? That is the internal debate roiling House Republicans as they plot their strategy on the landmark 2010 health care law, as its implementation accelerates."

"House GOP leaders are pushing their conference to embrace a series of messaging bills altering or dismantling pieces of the law to publicize for voters what Republicans argue are the statute's many failed and damaging policies. Their goal is to turn the law into an issue they can use against Democrats in the 2014 midterms."

"But rank-and-file Republicans, particularly freshmen and sophomore members, worry that any legislation to repeal a portion of the law could be interpreted by their constituents as strengthening it."
