Obama, in Maine, needles Republicans over calls to repeal healthcare overhaul

New York Times, April 2, 2010

On Thursday, President Obama traveled to Maine—represented by two moderate Republican senators who balked at his healthcare overhaul—to dare the opposition party to run against it this fall, the New York Times reports. Obama ridiculed Republicans for apocalyptic predictions about the healthcare program and needled them about their campaign platform calling for repeal, repeating the "Go for it" challenge he issued in Iowa recently. Supporting repeal, the president said, means Republicans would take away tax credits for small businesses and tell some Americans they would have to face a lifetime of debt again, the Times reports.
