GOP hopes Obama heath care woes have staying power

For nearly five years, Republicans have struggled to make a scandal stick to President Barack Obama’s White House. One by one, the controversies—with shorthand names such as Solyndra, Benghazi, and Fast and Furious—hit a fever pitch, then faded away.

But some Republicans see the disastrous rollout of Obama’s health law as a problem with the kind of staying power they have sought.

The health care failures are tangible for millions of Americans and can be experienced by anyone with Internet access. The law itself is more closely associated with Obama personally and long has been unpopular with the majority of the American people.

The longer the technical problems persist, the more likely they are to affect the delicate balance of enrollees needed in the insurance marketplace in order to keep costs down. …

Who hopes - GOP or GOPe?

From what I’ve seen, the GOPe will do anything possible to make sure ObamaCare succeeds.

For millions, the heartbreak of Obamacare is only one letter from their insurance company away.

Save money, keep your existing plan & doctor..all L-I-E-S.

For years it was the Democrats who needed the American people suffering to win elections. Now the Republicans are sitting on their hands allowing a terrible law to cause great harm, while hoping the American people suffer enough to elect them to office.

What about the millions that do not have internet access?

Just for comparison...In 4 years..Roosevelt, Obama’s living God’ brought together CEO’s of all the major industries, paid them a dollar a year, and they produced 50,000 planes, a couple of thousand ships, countless tanks and trucks and supplies for all the men and equipment to take out two world class empires on both sides of the Pacific. Obama in the same time frame can’t produce even one web site that will handle his monstrosity of a “health plan”. Smartest man in the room? Hah!!!

OK, so how may “hopes” has the GOP relied on?
GOP “hopes” ObamaCare will fail under the force of various state lawsuits;
GOP “hopes” ObamaCare will fail because red states won’t join in forming exchanges;
GOP “hopes” ObamaCare will fail because Supreme Court will find it unconstitutional;
GOP hopes Obama heath care woes have staying power;
Any others?


The MSM will actually abandon their hero and tell the truth ....

IMO never happen. He got what he wanted, zerocare is now the law, for now. When zerocare fails, the next step is single payer system, no matter how long it takes, whether it’s in his admin or cankels.

Same thing happened with the Clinton scandals.

In the 90's Clinton & wife had a new scandal every week. Now all we hear is how glorious Madame Hillary is.

Disgusting.

There is no need to hope that 0bamaCare will fail. It will fail.

A great story by AP telling us the scandals went away, but they are not saying that they went away because AP and other Media ignored them.

Because Darrell Issa is really a buffoon who investigates until something else comes along and then drops it.

A scandal was Watergate, when u hear the word “Scandal” u think, sex, lies, and/or videotape. To even compare Benghazi, and Fast and Furious, where heroes were murdered, to a scandal, is typical liberal press B.S.

hit a fever pitch, then faded away

That's cuz the pitcher dropped the ball.

When the aging cretin "leadership" of the Republican party gets dislodged from office, then perhaps they will be able to make something of these crimes by the Obama gangstas.

The MSM definitely helps bury this stuff but, uh, Obama made them the victims too....shoulda been able to leverage that

This dribble was on the front page of our local small town paper today, I think I will cancel my subscription!

When we went to our Oklahoma State University bowl game in Arizona January 2012, at half time, the family of border agent Bryan Terry was honored. He was murdered by illegal aliens with some of the Fast & Furious guns that Eric Holder and Barack Hussein Obama sent to the Mexican drug cartels. This is not an issue that is fading away.

Benghazi murders leave blood on the hands of Barack Hussien Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton, and 60 MINUTES finally reported on that just last night.

ObamaCare ACA - caused our 29 year old HEALTHY son to lose his E-Health health care insurance policy, the one they offered him for next year is TWICE THE PRICE!

These are real problems, and the GOP is NOT hoping that people will lose their healthcare! I am GOP and I am trying to get health care insurance for our son.

I wonder what happened to teh SYLYNDRA 1/5 billion bucks?????? Obama must have an offshore bank account with billions in it by now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Several owners of companies that create websites similar to healthcare.gov said they could have created it in two weeks, for 1/2 million dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And it would have WORKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so just where did the $638 million go?
