Quote of the Day: Obamacare is Practically a Stealth Initiative These Days

From Republican up-and-comer Marco Rubio, talking to Hugh Hewitt about the upcoming vote in the Senate on the continuing resolution to fund the government through the end of the year:

I think it’s coming next week….and I think it’s a perfect opportunity for us to have a debate once again on Obamacare. I don’t think there’s been enough attention paid to it

Right. Obamacare hasn’t gotten enough attention from Republicans who want to repeal it. What planet are we talking about here?
