Republicans couldn't stop Democrats from passing the health care reform bill Sunday. Now, they vow to make the bill – and big government spending – the core issue of the 2010 elections.

Republican lawmakers and activists had no trouble segueing to their new mantra following the passage of health care reform: “Repeal it.”
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich e-mailed his supporters Monday with his take on the “corrupt health care reform bill,” and solicited suggestions for how to repeal it.
“Repeal it” is a nice snappy slogan that fits on a bumper sticker. And in the short term, Republicans can make hay with the just-passed reform, especially during the immediate period before the benefits start to phase in, which is in six months.
