Botched ObamaCare rollout tops Democratic fears for 2014 election
The Hill ^ | May 1, 2013

Posted on 05/01/2013 12:02:09 PM PDT by SMGFan

Anxious Democrats fear a botched implementation of ObamaCare could dash their hopes of controlling the House and Senate for President Obama’s last two years in office. At his press conference Tuesday, Obama acknowledged “glitches and bumps” in the law’s rollout, but some congressional Democrats fear much worse. One high-ranking Democrat told The Hill that it is his leading concern.

Well if the attempt at Hillary care sank Democrats in 1994, I hope the GOP can sweep the Dems out of Senate control next year with key open Senate seats. But can any incumbent Dems Senators lose?

Can’t we drag them, screaming & yelling, into a Senate majority like we got them the House after 2010? Plenty of open Senate seats. And maybe win Alaska?

I don’t think they have much to worry about. At this point the NAMBLA Party could probably beat Republicans. Obama is going to get every thing he wants for the last 2 years of his administration. Lame duck nothing.

It seems to reason that the number of persons who will benefit from this Democrat doctrinaire desiderata will be so small and so much a normal part of the inevitable Democrat vote (the folks who get the walkin’-around money on election day) that it won’t be enough to offset the number of people unhappy and who’d previously been very content to pay their own way after working long and hard all of their lives for the sake of their health and their families health.

That’s the MSM spin — its a botched “rollout.” They actually are giving the Dems cover to say that the law is great but its the “rollout” that’s a problem. The reality is that the law is horrible and that when it is rolled out correctly, it will impose misery on the population. Ironically, the botched rollout has delayed the misery that the law will inflict.

Be confident and secure in the knowledge that this law CAN NOT be implemented. If all we believe and hold true is correct, it is destined to fail. Everything in the article states that the Administration is in complete denial of that.

Then we must be prepared to fight the battle of Free Market vs. Single Payer as the solution.

“BOTCHED” is the new ObamaCare meme. It is not that the program is pernicious, conceived with evil intent and put into law duplicitously. It is that it is being poorly implemented. This excuse is of a piece with the apologias offered in the wake of every other communist failure - “communism isn’t bad, it was just badly implemented this time. Let’s try again.”

It’s not the rollout that’s got it doomed, it’s the legislation itself.

The bastards should be afraid.

But as more people wake up to the damaging impact to each and every one of us, the D’s may wake up to civil unrest related to them and the POTUS.

This is a piss-poor time for Sandford to be running as the Repub nominee in South Carolina’s senate election. Election is May 7th, and Sanford is behind in the polls because of his lack of judgement.

Stupid. Stupid. Stupid!!!

When they complain, the ‘rats will blame it on republicans blocking enough funding to do it right.

Sooner or later, the rubber's going to meet the road; i.e., come January 1, 2014, people are going to expect to get healthcare of some sort. The second wave of rubber hitting road will be when healthcare providers offer a service, and expect payment. This might happen sooner, like in October, when everyone has to make their healthcare choices for the upcoming year.

My question is this--what happens then? What happens when people can't get a healthcare plan under Obamacare? What happens if it's just too expensive, regardless of whatever subsidies might be offered? What happens if doctors say, "we can't treat you, because we won't get paid?" What if pharmacies say, "we can't fill that scrip, because we don't know when we'll get paid?" (Or worse, "we can't fill that scrip, because we haven't been allocated enough of that particular medicine?")

Rollout?

Miss Piggie with lipstick will be flying around the White Hut before ObamaCare flies. It will be dead on arrival and they intended it to be that way.

It will implode under it’s own weight (cost).

Well that's their job. That's the corrupt "Two-Party Cartel" doing it's usual.

Maybe, but what’s the point? They’ll just squander it and use it to pass amnesty.

Not sure how it’s a problem for the dems. 42% aren’t even aware Obamacare is law yet.

America is blissfully basking in a stupor of ignorance.

Exactly. "Communism really is a good thing... we just need to try HARDER to implement it!"

Denial, he!! it's supposed to fail allowing them to "fall back" to plan "B" which is "single payer" that was their intent all along.

There’s only one thing a politician fears: losing his job.

And that's what the GOP would do once they're accountable as the majority. Imagine the fun stuff they'll do to us when they team up with the dems in the lame-duck session like many of them did in 2010 with the repeal of DADT and the ratification of NEW START.

Rinos nominating the father of Obamacare/Romneycare in 2012, destroyed it as an issue for republicans in the presidential election.

Maybe now, the GOP base can get back to trying to beat it in the mid terms.
