Heh! The Democrats are hoping to retake the House next year in the mid-term elections. There’s just one big problem for them – Obamacare. It’s a real doozy.
Democrats hope to retake the House of Representatives in next year’s elections. They won’t — and they’ll have themselves to blame, because 2014 is when ObamaCare kicks in.
With a vengeance.
The authors of the Obama health law postponed the pain until after the 2012 election. Some popular provisions went into effect immediately, such as allowing children to stay on their parent’s plan until age 26. And the White House granted 1,472 waivers to various companies and unions, exempting them from insurance reforms so they wouldn’t drop coverage for employees and members before the presidential contest.
Yet a majority of voters on Election Day still opposed the health law (though, obviously, it wasn’t the deciding issue in the presidential race). And opinion will only sour more as the law takes full force starting in January.
People in their 20s and 30s will be clobbered — their health-insurance premiums will double (or more), insurers report.
Read the whole thing, and then remember this image when 2014 comes along.
Voters gave them a drubbing in 2010 because of Obamacare. But that was before the worst of it kicked in, and many may have put it out of their minds in 2012. Next year nobody will have the luxury of not thinking about this dreadful law. If the Dems lose big like they did in 2010, they’ll have nobody to blame but themselves.
