CAP President Who Helped Write Obamacare Says It’s a Loser for Dems


Center for American Progress president Neera Tanden, who has boasted about her role in crafting the legislative language of Obamacare, thinks the issue is a loser for Democrats in 2014.

“You don’t want the election to be about Obamacare,” Tanden told National Journal on Thursday.

Tanden was formerly a senior adviser to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, advising her specifically on health care reform issues and working with Congress to draft legislation.

“I helped write the bill,” Tanden boasted last year.
