October House Overview: GOP Risk Factors

Earlier this year, a senior House Democrat ribbed our pessimistic forecast for their 2014 prospects by suggesting, "Why can't you just say 'Democrats can't win a majority in the House, but Republicans can lose one?'" That admonition has never seemed more appropriate.

Given the GOP-tilted nature of the congressional map and the dynamics of midterm turnout, we have always maintained that House Republicans would need to engage in some spectacularly self-destructive behavior in order for Democrats to have any shot at netting 17 seats and a majority next November.

Over the 16-day course of the government shutdown, House Republicans flirted with just that. Republicans' detour into what some have described as a defund-at-all-costs "cul de sac" has turned a negative spotlight on the party to an extent no Democratic ad could ever achieve.

"The only thing we've gotten from a two-week shutdown is about five or ten more races we've got to pay attention to," complains one clear-headed GOP strategist. "More money spent defending people than expanding the majority. Hopefully folks are scared and are going to take their races seriously."

The GOP's brand has been awful for years, and sustained more damage this month. Yet the biggest boost for House Democrats isn't the downturn in the GOP's brand (NBC News/Wall Street Journal surveys showed negative views of the Republican Party surging from 44 percent in September to 53 percent in October). It's that the shutdown forced voters to actually focus on the House GOP as "the problem" in DC, something Democrats simply could not do amid the noise of the 2012 presidential election.

Obammie care...

"Agreed. Blaming the contractors is ridiculous. The administration held back the specifications until after the 2012 election, for political reasons. I can only imagine what a tangled mess the business rules are"

Democrats have things under control!!!!!

"Bob Laszewski: What I’m worried about is that when people go to their doctor in January they may walk in, and the doctor and hospital won’t find them in the insurer’s computer system or their bank account won’t be appropriately debited or they’ll be signed up for the wrong plan."

Who is Bob Laszewski?

"Robert Laszewski is president of Health Policy and Strategy Associates, a policy and marketplace consulting firm that has him working closely with many in the heath industry as they try to navigate the Affordable Care Act..."

Democrats have it all under control....

Ezra Klein asks...
"Tell me what you’re hearing from the insurance industry that has you concerned.

BL: The insurance industry is literally receiving a handful of new enrollments from the 36 Obama administration-run exchanges. It’s really 20 or 30 or 40 each day through last week. And a good share of those enrollments are problematic. One insurance company told me,“we got an enrollment from John Doe. Then five minutes later we got a message from CMS disenrolling him. Then we got another message re-enrolling him.” On and on, up to 10 times. So insurers aren’t really sure if the enrollments they’ve got are enrollments they should have."
