Skip to comments.Obamacare Puts Economy on Voters' Minds

This is not the first time a president has expressed a rather unpresidential amount of glee over a personal vindication of sorts. Sometimes such arrogance goes unchecked; sometimes it gets checked off in the ballot box.
Historically in Washington, presidential hubris is viewed as an entitlement of the office although outside Washington, where the view is not seen through the confines of the political bubble, it usually rubs people the wrong way.
The numbers for Obamacare in the survey are equally staggering: A majority of respondents said the laws implementation has been worse than they expected, the cost of health care is increasing rather than decreasing, and the quality of care is getting worse rather than better.
Some Democrats insist they are seeing Obamacare lessen as a boat-anchor on their political fortunes. In the isolation of their cloakrooms that may seem to be the case, but what they fail to understand is that Obamacare, at its core, is an economic problem.
It was not a slowdown created in a vacuum. And it wasnt just bad winter weather that caused this stunning grind; constant news reports of January, February and March, detailing Obamacares impact on the middle class, strongly contributed to the economys lack of growth.
People know something that political strategists have failed to calculate: Policy cancellations, premium increases and plan changes are not finished; theyre just getting started, and their impact will roll through the country all summer.
Many people, who haven't seen any increases yet, eventually will and they will be floored when they discover how much health care will cost.
Dont think that wont affect their votes in the fall.

Government controls the schools.
Government controls energy.
Government controls healthcare.
We should have a political party offering to give us a little less of that.
I simply don’t believe it will matter if republicans take a super majority in the senate. They’ll still be afraid of their shadows.
If Republicans want to win,they better use this to their advantage....and then back it up with a lot more than just words if they are successful.
It will matter if they are T party people.
I simply dont believe it will matter if republicans take a super majority in the senate. Theyll still be afraid of their shadows.
That’s why I hope that, if Mitch McConnell and the other GOPe RINOs win their Primary, they lose the General Election. I don’t even give a crap anymore if the Dems take the freakin’ House. I can’t stand John Boner. Would love to see him have to give away his gavel.
And the media controls the government. Grab up a copy of THIS TOWN and see how it all really works.
I doubt anyone on here will live to see 67 T party people elected to the senate.
I can’t say that I disagree. I believe that if the republicans take the senate they’ll do absolutely nothing. Then the democrats and the media will blame them and here comes Hillary with a democrat congress. I’m not sure obama would have be re-elected if the republicans hadn’t won the house in 2010. I’m not sure Clinton would have been re-elected if the republicans hadn’t won the house in 1994.
