Oregon House Republicans launched a new website today with a mash-up video poking fun at the Cover Oregon failure and its handling by Democratic leadership, including Gov. John Kitzhaber and House Speaker Tina Kotek (D-Portland).
The House GOP are looking to overcome the 34-26 edge now held by Democrats. The Republicans' press release calls Cover Oregon "the poster child for government incompetence and failed leadership." The web site, takebackor.com, features a video that documents the unraveling Cover Oregon as it unfolded in the national media.
At 1:16 the video riffles through sound bites such as "doomed to fail... doesnât work... glitchy." The video also includes outtakes from the popular outrage segment by John Oliver on his HBO show Last Week Tonight that savaged the state's handling of Cover Oregon.
