President Obama on Wednesday sought to assuage anxious Democrats who are worried that ObamaCares troubled rollout is going to come back to haunt them during the 2014 midterm elections.
Theres a lot of pent-up frustration among Senate Democrats who are facing voters next year, a party source familiar with the meeting told Fox News.
A Democratic source told Fox News Ed Henry that some of the senators in the room floated a delay of up to one year in the laws implementation an idea the president rejected. The source said, however, that senators left the White House feeling that it was a constructive meeting.
The meeting could suggest that momentum is building for Democrats to force changes to the law. A letter circulated in late October among Democratic senators urged the Obama administration to delay enforcement of the health care laws individual mandate, a recommendation supported by senators Mark Pryor, D-Ark., Mary Landrieu, D-La., Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., Mark Begich, D-Alaska, and Kay Hagan, D-N.C., all of whom were present at Wednesdays meeting.

Yes, and four of those five are retiring. The Dem senators up for re-election not retiring should get the message, 0bamacare is hazardous to their re-election.
Nov 5, 2014 is a year off.
I hope it is a day of great rejoicing.
“sought to assuage anxious Democrats”
Heh. I read that as “sought to massage anxious Democrats “
He probably would.
I hope it haunts them just before they get sentenced for fraud and sedition.
So, what lies did he tell them today?
Hang in there Barry, take the whole damn bunch over the cliff with you.
Amen to that!
From the 0care mess so far it well may be.
Personally I hope it’s a day of bloody carnage.
Don’t tell me.
1) Obamacare saves everybody money.
2) Obamacare provides better healthcare.
3) Anything more costly, would have cost more without Obamacare.
4) What does Obamacare provide? Return to 1)
It’s settled law. Take a hike you anarchists, hostage takers, terrorists with bombs on your chest, arsonists, etc etc.
You built it. You made it happen.
Hey fools, you should have listened to Cruz.
-Let the hangings begin.
he is a master at lip service
We don’t need an electin to get rid of Priebus ASAP.
Obamacare was supposed to save $2,500 on policies.
Obama lied. Period.
Reggie agrees. I’m sure.
My take: Caesar tells the Senators to pound sand.
The source went on to say, "we got our story straight and we're sticking to it. It was Bush's fault."
Every one of the Senators proposing a year delay voted to table (kill) the House bill providing for the same delay. They felt so strongly that a delay was unsound that they shut the government down over the proposal.
