The partisan debate over Obamacare was accurately summed up in one simple tweet Thursday by the National Republican Congressional Committee.
It came immediately after President Barack Obama announced that 8 million Americans had signed up for private insurance on Obamacare’s exchanges, and called on Republicans to give up their quest to repeal the law.
No, we can’t. RT @ZekeJMiller: Obama: “I think we can all agree that it’s well past time to move on.”

Nope! Republicans have absolutely no intention of letting go of Obamacare, their No. 1 campaign issue in 2014. The positive new sign-up figures unveiled by the White House — including 5 million on non-exchange private plans, 3 million on Medicaid, 3 million young adults on a parent’s policy — won’t change that because the issue animates the conservative base like none other.
