A private meeting on Capitol Hill with House Democrats and White House officials on Wednesday became heated when rank-and-file members expressed frustration about continued Obamacare problems, according to multiple sources in the room.

One congressional Democrat who attended the meeting said senior Obama administration officials Mike Hash and David Simas really "got hit" by House Democrats about everything from the troubled website to the broken promise that people can keep the insurance plans they like.

The most pressing political challenge for House Democrats will come this Friday, when they will have to vote on a House Republican plan by Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan that allows people to keep the policy they like.

Several lawmakers -- even liberals who adamantly support Obamacare -- stood and warned the officials that the White House must come up with a solution before the vote.

As CNN first reported on Tuesday, many House Democrats are feeling so much pressure from constituents on this issue, they may feel compelled to vote yes for political reasons.

"Members want to keep their promises to their constituents, which is that they would have affordable insurance -- if they want to keep the plan they have -- they would keep it," said Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Ohio. "We would offer broader insurance alternatives so that people would have more competitive pricing."

Democratic congressional sources have told CNN that Friday is a defacto deadline for the administration to come up with a fix. The preference would be an administrative remedy that circumvents the polarized Congress. But if that is not possible, Democrats are demanding the White House offer a legislative solution that Democrats can offer as an alternative to the GOP plan.

Administration officials came to the meeting to try to convince House Democrats not to vote for the Upton bill, saying it would gum up the system and result in higher premiums for most Americans, sources told CNN.

"They were talking about the ultimate impact of voting for it. That in fact it would allow plans that had high deductibles, very poor coverage which of course we want to get rid of," said Jan Schakowsky, D-Illinois.

Democratic Rep. Jose Serrano of New York told reporters he thinks something will "develop over the next 24 hours."

Lawmakers also expressed frustration with the website problems -- and concern over promises the administration continues to make about when it will be fixed.

Rep. Anna Eschoo of California asked administration officials to stop using "red lines" they may have to cross and make the public relations problems worse for Democrats.

Reggie Love says he and President Obama played cards during the Osama bin Laden raid, and that the president told him, "I can't watch this entire thing."

"Most people were like down in the Situation Room and [President Obama] was like,‘I’m not going to be down there, I can’t watch this entire thing,’ We must have played 15 games of spades," said Love at a public event.

The Hidden Obamacare Taxes That
Will Crush The Middle Class
By Money Morning Staff Reports

Get ready to be blindsided by a barrage of new taxes.$1 trillion worth...

They'll be coming courtesy of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare.

And they won't just be affecting those who make over $250,000. The bulk of these taxes will be passed on directly to the middle class.

That's because while a majority of these "stealth taxes" were designed to be taxes on businesses, they're actually transferred directly to ordinary citizens.
MORE: How much extra will you have to pay? To see how Obamacare taxes will directly affect your paycheck, go here.

They include the investment income surtax, a Medicare payroll tax, even a "tanning tax" on those who utilize indoor tanning services.

"Many of those [hidden] taxes, especially those on hospitals, insurers and medical device manufacturers, will ultimately be passed on through higher health costs," said Michael Tanner an expert on the healthcare law.

In fact, analysts estimate Obamacare will cost the average taxpayer nearly $6,000 in extra taxes as early as next year.
Obamacare Tax Hikes Stoke Outrage

Many of the Obamacare taxes are already in effect, others will hit January 1. But they are already infuriating millions of Americans.

While even Obamacare detractors applaud the requirement that insurance companies cover pre-existing conditions and put a stop to lifetime caps on benefits, they say these laudable benefits don't compensate for the bills high cost - especially in new taxes.

According to most experts, Obamacare will create a total of twenty new taxes or tax hikes on the American people.

In fact, the Obama administration has already given the IRS an extra $500 million to enforce the rules and regulations of Obamacare.

The new taxes don't bode well for millions of middle-class Americans. Incomes for the rich have soared this decade but middle class workers have seen their wages stagnate and even drop since the 2008 Great Recession.

Many fear Obamacare with its high insurance costs and new taxes, could provide the middle class a fatal blow.
The 20 new Obamacare taxes are making Americans eyes pop out in disbelief. Take a look.

Of course, the Obamacare plan was primarily designed to decrease the number of uninsured Americans and reduce healthcare costs.

Many experts are saying it will have the exact opposite effect.

That's just one of the reasons why Republicans hope to defund Obamacare before January.

They claim that the taxes and costs needed to pay for Obamacare will crush the middle class and most U.S. taxpayers, as well as trigger job losses in affected industries.

Tax experts say you should try to estimate how much you will have to pay when the law goes into full effect - and take precautions to limit the damage to your bottom line.

Yet another example of you jousting with a windmill. None of this matters because you offer nothing to replace everything you rant against. Even if your dream to bring the entire government down comes true it would have to be replaced with something other than anarchy. You are nothing more than a frustrated whiner asking dumbass pointless questions.
For the very, very slow people in the class....

I would love to replace the Clinton administration with something else. However, because that embarrassment is now part of history, and reality isn't a science fiction movie, that is something that cannot be replaced.
Dreams of bringing the entire government down would have to include a plan to eliminate the Constitution from government. Would you care to discuss the Democrats' plan to bring down the entire government? Let's start with the First Amendment violations against Christians. Let's continue with the constant threat to the Second Amendment. How about the government planning to violate the Third Amendment with regard to the role of FEMA in an emergency (you can insert the declaration of Marshal Law here). How about the constant violation of the Fourth Amendment by NSA, DHS, DoJ, etc., etc., etc. How about the IRS violating the Fifth Amendment and ignoring the requirement of "due process of law".

The Democrats are executing their plan to bring down the entire government, and speculation is they intend to replace it with an Orwellian totalitarian dictatorship.

Or was it the part about Obama coming off the golf course to play cards before the raid because it was "too intense"?
Because I can prove that too. And have in the past.
But why must you insist on always being embarrassed? I don't enjoy it if you think that too.

WASHINGTON — Golf shoes in the Oval Office could have been a clue.

Obama headed for the Andrews Air Force Base golf course...but he only played nine holes instead of his customary 18, leaving after about three hours.

Obama was heading back for the final meeting on the bin Laden operation [and to watch the raid].

9.Life for you is fantastic because you're delusional.
Given that if the Democrats nominated the corpse of a dead dog to run for president, there would be 35 percent of the population voting for the dead dog.
Referencing the Rasmussen poll numbers, that puts Obama's approval rating at 2 percent.

.... 2 percent.

They want to reform these entitlement programs. Democrats know they must be reformed to be sustained too. Dems just don't want to take the responsibility to do what they were elected to do because they like keeping their base happy and their votes better than doing what's right for the entire nation.
Raising the retirement age is unpopular among seniors and many other Americans. Republicans wouldn't pass anything that went against the majority. Only Democrats do that.
Blah, blah, blah. You're talking in circles again Carol.
John Boehner actually discussed raising the retirement age in an interview with the Pittsburg Tribune-Review in June 2010. Boehner said he'd favor increasing the Social Security retirement age to 70 for people who have at least 20 years until retirement, tying cost-of-living increases to the consumer price index rather than wage inflation, and limiting payments to those who need them. By only targeting those who are 20 years away from retirement I guess he figured that seniors are of the "I've got mine screw you crowd" and some are but as for myself, I'm also concerned about my son, daughter and my grandson.
Really Carol? The GOP wouldn't pass anything that went against the majority? Medicare Part D when passed had a 20% approval rating.
