Three big news articles came out on the same day, from liberal sources and all three paint the same picture, Dems in D.C. are getting nervous about the mid-terms.
Funny they are racing to make sure their people know the talking points of "We are not seeking a carve-out for our selves". As well as being outraged that some one is asking where they stand on the issue. Also funny that none of the "Media" is doing this work of asking those questions.From the Politico:
Obamacare exemption talk lights up Capitol Hill
By JAKE SHERMAN | April 25, 2013
The Obamacare war is on in Congress.
A top aide to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sent an email to Democratic offices Thursday afternoon, warning that “Republican trackers” are on Independence Avenue asking lawmakers about the effort to rework which health care insurance members of Congress must use.
One Democratic leadership aide said trackers were asking lawmakers if they thought “it’s OK for members of Congress to be exempt from Obamacare?”
The left knows full well that this will be used against them come next year. And these questions are making them nervous.
They are already asking Obama to hold off implementing some of the more costly aspects of Obamacare set to take effect this year and next. Knowing they will be the ones paying for it in the end for supporting the law in the first place.
From the New York Times:Democratic Senators Tell White House of Concerns About Health Care Law Rollout
By ROBERT PEAR | April 25, 2013
WASHINGTON — Democratic senators, at a caucus meeting with White House officials, expressed concerns on Thursday about how the Obama administration was carrying out the health care law they adopted three years ago.
Democrats in both houses of Congress said some members of their party were getting nervous that they could pay a political price if the rollout of the law was messy or if premiums went up significantly.
This one is kinda a two-fer.Democrats blink first on aviation cuts
By KATHRYN A. WOLFE and BURGESS EVERETT | April 25, 2013
The White House and Democrats in Congress argued for months against a piecemeal fix to the budget problems caused by the sequester.
But on Thursday, Democrats caved in and agreed to allow the Federal Aviation Administration to keep air traffic control towers running at close to full capacity.
All it took was a few thousand people standing in line at the airport.
First notice that last bolded. Kinda interesting they rush passing this right before they all go on recess. Could it be they too don't want to be caught up in the long lines at the airports that they created?
Second, the public wasn't buying their lies on its the GOP's fault for this all with their draconian cuts. And the dems were being blamed.
In all, looks like they are getting nervous. The mid-terms are coming fast, their polls I'm sure they are doing are not looking good, and they know if they fail this year, their done. Obama will be a lame duck for the rest of his term. And they have nothing good to show for his entire presidency.
