WASHINGTON—In a strategic announcement that has reportedly left Beltway observers both shocked and stunned, Republican lawmakers revealed Monday that they were planning to go after Obamacare. “This may surprise many Americans, but myself and my colleagues do not like Obamacare and have been planning to gut the bill for quite some time,” said House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, adding that one of the GOP’s strategies going forward will be to attack those politicians who voted for and supported Obamacare, including the president himself. “I won’t say that we’ll use the upcoming debt ceiling increase as leverage to repeal the law, but let’s just say everything is on the table. The gloves are coming off.” Washington officials later confirmed that Democratic leaders would soon announce their plans to defend Obamacare.
