Election year politics won't save OH Dems

Mandi Merritt - August 9, 2018

Good afternoon, 
 
An article today by Cleveland.com points to a common trend in Ohio's Democrat candidates. The more they feel the heat from their Republican challengers, the more they try to distance themselves from far-left ideas embraced by their national party. Medicare for all is just the latest example. 
 
According to the article: 
 
"Ryan, Brown and O'Connor represent a common theme -- the more competitive the race, the less likely Democrats are to fully embrace an issue whose popularity in a moderate state like Ohio is unproven at best." 
 
But election year politics can't hide where these Democrats truly stand on the left's latest liberal scheme. 
 
For years, Tim Ryan and Sherrod Brown​ have unequivocally voiced support for this controversial program.  And while Richard CordrayDanny O'Connor and Aftab Pureval desperately try to avoid the question, national liberals like Bernie SandersElizabeth Warren, and Nancy Pelos​i - who set the party's agenda - are coalescing towards a single-payer system.  There's no question they would just fall in line. 
 
The left's liberal darlings can't even defend their own proposals.  Just today, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez​ tried to claim that Medicare for all would be paid for based on savings from funeral expenses​? And Bernie Sanders' claim that government-run healthcare would actually save money have been repeatedly fact-checked
 
Ohio Democrats can't keep dodging the question of Medicare for all. Ohioans deserve to know where they stand: If faced with a vote on government-run healthcare today, would they support it?
 
"Election year politics won't save Ohio Democrats from the far-left ideas of their party. Ohio can't be the laboratory for the liberal's government-run healthcare experiment that would cost $32.6 Trillion dollars. A vote for Ohio Democrats would be a vote for massive tax increases on hardworking Ohioans." - RNC Spokesperson Mandi Merritt ​
