No one knows for sure just how bad Obamacare will be for Democrats in the November mid-term elections, but Republicans and outside groups are banking, and betting on the chances that Obama’s healthcare law will ultimately lead to the demise of the Democrat Party.Democrat lawmaker are feeling the heat, as more and more of them are beginning to hedge their support for the controversial healthcare law, some have even voted in favor of anti-Obamcare legislation sponsored by the Republican-led House of Representatives.
One politician, who is just outright hiding from Obama and his law, is North Carolina U.S. Senator Kay Hagan, who stiffed the President during his recent trip to North Carolina.
But while there are those Democrat lawmakers, who are looking to preserve their political careers by distancing themselves from Obamacare, there are still those who have drank the Kool-Aid, are have bet the farm on the law.
These Republicans and outside groups in question, have all decided to pile on the Obamacare dog pile of Democrats, and are targeting those Congressional Democrats already identified as vulnerable.One of those congressmen, who has bet his guayabera shirt, and stated that Obamacare is the best thing since slice ‘Pan Cubano,’ is Florida Congressman Joe Garcia.
Garcia has been the target of the Libre Initiative’s wrath against Obamcare-loving legislators, who have spent $700,000 in his congressional district alone.
“Thousands of people in my district need health insurance, and ACA is helping them” …“I’m committed to do everything I can to help people get enrolled and get covered, and that includes moving needed reforms for the bill and helping people find affordable coverage. Come November, many may wish they had not stood on the sideline complaining rather than helping.”-Rep. Joe Garcia (D) Politico
Garcia is facing a tough re-election challenge from Republican politico Carlos Curbelo for his congressional seat that is considered to lean Republican, but just by a hair.
Here is Libre’s video hit on Garcia:
“This law does not put patients first,” the physician, Grazie Pozo Christie, says in the ad. “My patients ask if I will continue to provide care for them, and it pains me to say, ‘I don’t have an answer.’”-Politico
The physician acting in the video is not alone. I can say this from experience, in that every single doctor and nurse I have spoken to about Obamacare, has questioned the law’s viability, and believe it to be a detriment to the healthcare profession.
Just three weeks ago, I underwent a surgical procedure to remove a growth from my vocal chords. The surgeon, who conducted the surgery was a young Massachusetts liberal democrat, who also questioned the healthcare law. It is becoming abundantly clear that, the pushback on Obamcare in the medical community, transcends across political party lines.
Obamacare does not discriminate. It will screw Democrats just as hard as it does Republicans.
