Get along, little dogies. It’s branding time in Washington. Obamacare repeal or not, it’s time to mark all the congressional rumps so we can decide next election who keeps his or her job and who doesn’t.

The highly anticipated vote Wednesday to repeal the health care reform bill will make headlines and count as a promise kept by House Republicans.

But in the end, it’s really just for show.

The real work begins immediately afterward, with Republicans using every legislative and political tool at their disposal to wage a two-year campaign against the overhaul. And there won’t be anything subtle about this slow-drip strategy as Republicans aim to erode public confidence in the law and, they hope, make it so politically unpalatable that even some Democrats turn against it.
