A House Democrat who voted against ObamaCare said the law is likely to sweep Republicans into office in November.
Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) had dire predictions for his party during a radio interview on Thursday.
"We will lose seats in the House," Lynch told Boston Herald Radio. "I am fairly certain of that based on the poll numbers that are coming out from more experienced poll sets down there."
He continued, "And I think we may lose the Senate. I think that's a possibility ... primarily because of healthcare."
The comments pit Lynch against party chiefs like Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). The House minority leader and others have argued consistently that the healthcare law will be a political winner for Democrats this year.
Democrats are seeking to go on offense after Thursday's news from the White House that 8 million people have signed up for private plans on the insurance exchanges.
Lynch predicted the issue will again turn sour for the party a few years down the road because of several taxes within the law that have not taken effect. A levy on the most generous health plans, for example, will start in 2018.
"There's all these taxes and fees that are the tough medicine, that up to now ... haven't been implemented. I don't know whos going to do that, Lynch said.
"Maybe ... they expect the next administration is going to put these penalties in place. I think thats the time it's going to hit the fan."
They'll get even by passing amnesty the day after the midterm elections.
Real iinteresting if it can turn into a mandate like the contract with america.
Spot on. All those lackluster Obama rallies may have been real, but they created a false sense of security.
Like the Dems care anymore if they can’t even round up a rent-a-mob. It’s the phantom voters - literal absentee voters because they don’t exist - and votes from the grave that count. And then how about the millions of dem voters who reside inside the voting machines? It’s like entire cities and counties live in those things.
8 million....why not say its 10 million or 12 million ?
these dopes just pull numbers out of the air about everything.
No, we shouldn't. And people, if you can make phone calls, knock on doors, put out signs, or send money to conservatives, please do. Obamacare alone may not be enough to put us over.
A House Democrat who voted against ObamaCare... Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) had dire predictions... "We will lose seats in the House... based on the poll numbers that are coming out from more experienced poll sets down there... And I think we may lose the Senate...

“Its the phantom voters - literal absentee voters because they dont exist - and votes from the grave that count. And then how about the millions of dem voters who reside inside the voting machines? Its like entire cities and counties live in those things.”
Absolutely! the dems don’t need to worry about the eligible voter, they’ve got enough ephemeral voters to win every election from now on, plus all the 47% + illegals that will be able to vote in future elections.
Dems retain control of Senate will be the MSM story the night after this November’s election. and then all the stories on the MSM will return to focusing on how women are being denied equal pay, restrained by an invisible glass ceiling, denied the right to free access to birth control and abortions as they prepare the way for Hillary to ascend to her “deserved” place in the White House as America’s equal rights champion for women come January 2017.
The Dems’ rallying cry will be: isn’t it time that America had a woman president? and of course that has merit, but why should that woman be Hillary Clinton? when, if she is the best female leader that America has to elect, we are indeed in trouble as a nation.
The Pubbies need to come up with something else as a campaign issue in addition to ObamaCare.
I’m against deceit in all circumstances . . . and . . . the end does not justify the means, but I am wondering if the gop is waving immigration as an incentive to win some Hispanic votes (coupled with the possible trouncing of the dems) and then pull out the rug after the election.
To this end, the gop has got to be insane to believe that legalizing 12 million liberal welfare cases is going to benefit them.
Lynch did not vote for ObamaCare. He voted against it.
Really,I thought that every last Dem voted for it.
HOW ABOUT INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM PLAIN AND SIMPLE!!! HOW ABOUT SMALLER GOVERNMENT PLAIN AND SIMPLE!!!!
