Obamacare and the Midterms
While you're enjoying Christmas leftovers, don't miss this little piece of news.
The Hill reports:
The GOP has the advantage heading into 2014's midterm election, according to a new poll from CNN.
Republicans lead Democrats on CNN's generic congressional ballot by 49 percent to 44 percent after the tumultuous start of ObamaCare.
That's a huge 13-point swing from October, when Democrats had the edge following the government shutdown. At that point, Democrats were up by 50 percent to 42 percent on a generic ballot test.
Obamacare, Obamacare, Obamacare. It was a huge problem for Democrats in 2010 and it's starting to be a huge problem for them when it comes to 2014.
It's also a problem that a fixed website won't mend, as the website is one small part of an enormous policy disaster. People are losing their insurance, their doctors, their freedom, and their options. That goes well beyond "website glitches" or "bumps in the road."
Health is personal. Mess with people's health care and I assure you that they will make their voices heard--in speech, in writing, and in votes.
