Obamacare Panic

If you’re a Democrat up for reelection in 2014 this has been a bad few weeks.  Any ill will towards the GOP over the shutdown is not coming you’re way thanks to the bad rollout of Obamacare. Even though some are calling for party unity around Obamacare you are probably not feeling all the united right now.

People like Senator Mary Landrieu are offering bills to allow people to keep the insurance policies that don’t comply with the new laws mandates.  While this may upset people like Chris Hayes, let’s be honest Landrieu probably doesn’t give a shit what Hayes or Robert Reich think.  After all, unlike Hayes, Reich, and Obama, she has to face the voters next November.

In the coming days you will see more of this type of behavior.  Democratic candidates for Senate in Louisiana, Arkansas, Alaska, West Virginia, and Montana would be politically smart to do everything they can to cause the White House headaches over this.  After all, it’s not like Chris Hayes or Robert Reich is going to be there to give them a job when the election is over.

  1. The terrible state of US healthcare has long been one of the chief embarrassments of the western world. Thank God it’s finally getting sorted out.
