Skip to comments.Are Nervous Democrats Starting to Eye Obamacare Repeal?

And the Obamacare debacle could very well grow worse. Also complicating the Left's messaging are conflicting and shifting explanations of their lies. President Obama claimed that there was no lie, then attempted to re-write his infamous promise, then half-assedly 'apologized' for it. Skittish Democrats like Mary Landrieu and Jeff Merkley are insisting they had no idea that millions of Americans would lose their coverage because of Obamacare, while others breezily admit that everyone knew. How is it possible that Landrieu was totally in the dark, while the truth was blatantly obvious to her Senate sisters? (Hint: It's not). Will Mary Landrieu and company take '100 percent' responsibility for their feigned ignorance?

Let’s not forget that their control of Education is linked to Obamacare. If one goes, so goes the other.
Watch them start talking about “partial repeal” so they get to keep the good stuff (the oppression, the power, the moral high ground, etc.)
of course it will get worse! the employer mandate was put off for a year, and when all these new policies are renewed next year expect rates to triple.
It would be smart politics, in my opinion, for the Democrats to say, this is such a mess, let’s repeal and start over.
Democrats are going to continue to get hammered through Election Day 2014 and beyond with all of the issues with Obamacare.
If that happens, it would put us back to square one. But, we never had a good honest debate in this country about healthcare. Instead we had Democrats ram it through with questionable parliamentary procedures. It would have been nice to have an honest debate about what’s wrong with health insurance in this country, and perhaps make some changes, without having rammed through some huge bloated Frankenstein monster of “reform” which we are stuck with.
That just might be a problem should the Republicans take the Senate in '14. But they'll take that butt-whipping when they come to it.
Time to repeal the whole Great Society!
I remember reading that even Zero wanted to take small steps with HC reform. It was Pelosi that wanted to go for it all. I’m surprised he hasn’t thrown her under the bus
It was supposed to fail. It just wasn’t supposed to be such a big failure so fast. Makes it damned hard to argue for the government to take over healthcare completely.
If Republicans win in 2014, the Democrats will vote to repeal and campaign against the GOP version of healthcare in 2016.
Can’t he be both?..................
The liberal elite will never give up on this.
Like the Gun Control Act of 68, they will never allow a full retreat.
Liberal politicians, who are the ones getting nervous, will be sacrificed for the greater good.
The hope is to retain a core group of liberals who can prevent a future GOP repeal, but pushing the “compromise” message.
The only way Obamacare has a chance of being killed is if the GOP gets a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, retains control of the House and seats a solid conservative in the White House.....and even then, they may not have the fortitude to repeal.
Dems will indeed be hammered because millions got cancelled and offered a crap sandwich. By November of next year it will still be a crap sandwich.
Republicans must now take the lead on the replace part of "repeal and replace".
Actually for Obama, this is a “small step”. As he said, “the problem” with getting a ‘single payer” is that most Americans liked what they had. First they had to separate Americans from getting health insurance through work, then they could get them to accept socialized medicine.
Mission accomplished. The complete transformation of America is well underway. Obama has three more years, and flexibility. Who cares what people think?
No and it will cost them dearly.
The late Margaret Thatcher is credited as saying, “Socialism works until you run out of other peoples’ money.”
In THIS case it can’t GET other peoples’ money................
