House Dems about to 'go crazy'
http://thehill.com/blogs/healthwatch/health-reform-implementation/190143-house-dems-about-to-go-crazy

House Democrats on Wednesday expressed increasing frustration at the Obama administration’s inability to improve the rollout of ObamaCare.

Democrats said they’re worried about "being dragged into this non-stop cycle" of bad news about the ObamaCare rollout, rather than celebrating the successes of the law they helped to pass, a Democratic aide said.

"They're voicing those frustrations with the administration," the aide said following a Democratic Caucus meeting where administration officials got an earful from exasperated lawmakers.
With the House vote just two days away, many Democrats are urging the White House to come up with an administrative alternative to legislation sponsored by Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.) that would allow insurance companies to offer their old insurance plans.

The GOP bill is a response to the nearly 5 million people who have seen their health plans canceled under ObamaCare.

Two centrist Democrats — Reps. John Barrow (Ga.) and Mike McIntyre (N.C.) — already have endorsed the Upton measure, but that number could rise if the bill comes up for a vote without a Democratic alternative providing some political cover.

A second Democratic aide warned that if the administration doesn't provide such a substitute by Friday, many members will "go crazy.”

You've got to watch those "crazy dems. They're what initially got us into this mss---remember that lovely Ms. Pelosi's urging them to pass it before learning what's in it. In the words of that noted cleric, Dr. Wright in Chicago, maybe those chickens are indeed coming home to roost.

The opposition needs to constantly remind the American citizens that not one Republican voted for this monstrosity.

It was heart warming to watch Sen Cruz last night on the Kelly File, when Megyn Kelly commented on how Cruz was lambasted as a loon when he tried to stop the implementation of the "affordable" care act. Funny how some of those Dem senators, when they think they're going to get their rears kicked out of office come 11-14, are suddenly figuring out what Cruz had warned about.

What that aid is basically saying, by "Go Crazy" they will support GOP efforts to reform Obamacare. Crazy talk for the left considering their stance. And it would oppose Obama by siding with the right.

But Obama has back into a corner. Yesterday Carny stated.


CARNEY: I don’t have the details on that. I would just say that broadly speaking that applies to the Upton legislation. Broadly speaking, we do not see that as fixing the problem, we see that as throwing the baby out with the bath water.

Translation, they won't or don't want to change a thing.

This is going to spark a war in the DNC.

(CNN) (http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2013/11/14/breaking-obama-to-make-statement-on-health-care/) – President Barack Obama will make a statement on the Affordable Care Act at 11:35 a.m. ET in the White House Press Briefing Room, the White House announced Thursday morning.

Seems Obama is trying to appease them.

Obama to Say Insured Can Keep Health Plans for a Year

President Obama is poised to announce today that Americans can keep their health insurance plans -- for up to a year -- before they are required to get coverage that meets the stiffer requirements of the Affordable Care Act (http://abcnews.go.com/topics/news/healthcare/affordable-care-act.htm), ABC News has learned.



So they can keep it till after next years elections.

Actually they would all get their NEW cancellation notices in October, right before the next election, this could work out pretty well for the GOP as long as they don't end up making themselves look like dicks in the process of making this as painful for the Dems as possible. Personally I don't think the genie can be put back in the bottle on the insurer end, especially for a one-year dead-end road, the insured risk pools have already been destroyed and I just doubt the majority of insurers could or would stand them back up as they were two months ago and still have the math work.

I had to laugh at this howler from the quote:


...rather than celebrating the successes of the law they helped to pass...

:biggrin-new:It's not enough time. Only plus side is the employer mandate will kick in too. But who's to say he won't kick in a 6 month delay in June or July?

Barry's "appeasement" works only on muzzies. He's not yet learned how to appease the GOP/conservatives and even if he learns tomorrow, he'll forget quickly enough.

Barry simply cannot be trusted to do anything but blame others and take credit when things (for him and his sycophants) go well.

So do the American people. All of 2014 should be spent reminding Americans that no Republican voted for this and that Republicans voted to defund it. Obama was unwilling to admit he was wrong and the Democratic Senate shut down the government.

That has to be repeated ad nauseam in ads for the 2014 midterms.
