If they stop to think about their own interests, moderate Democratic Senators might agree to defund Obamacare. Frankly, it’s a gift they’re being handed on a silver platter, should they choose to accept it.
Obamacare is a disaster. To say that it’s a train wreck is a ridiculous understatement. Obamacare is to a train wreck as a train wreck is to a lazy Sunday brunch. It’s more like the Hindenburg times a thousand. Everybody hates it. People are losing their employer sponsored plans, having their hours cut, losing jobs, private plans are being canceled, labor unions hate it, … America hates it.
What better way to demonstrate one’s moderate credentials than by breaking with a decreasingly popular President over the single worst public policy enacted in living memory?
I mean, is Obamacare really the hill you’re willing to die on?
Worried about being kicked off the “team”? You shouldn’t. Do you really want to be associated with the Obama-crats when some of the scandals start to really kick in?
How about when it becomes public knowledge that the administration was running an illegal gun smuggling operation through Benghazi?
How about when people start going to jail over the IRS scandal? Or when Eric Holder finally has to fall on his proverbial sword over any number of likely criminal activities he’s been involved in, from Fast and Furious to multiple commissions of perjury? Or when it becomes politically unsustainable that the administration is providing weapons to Al Qaeda affiliates in Syria? … Or any number of other absurdities that this administration has perpetrated.
There aren’t a lot of scenarios where Obama gets more popular in his second term, and realistically there are a few where he could even be impeached.
Still want to hang on to the job-killing, economy-killing, person-killing Obamacare?
Could be a career-killer.
