Don't be surprised if the Republicans hold the majority n BOTH houses of congress after the next election when voters punish those in power who are responsible for their health insurance policies ("If you like your heath insurance policy, you can keep it ! PERIOD !" too bad The Obamaniac LIED) being cancelled or their premiums skyrocket.<quoted text>
Actually, you can see that the Republican leadership is trying to bury this as deeply as they can. Sure, they'll have their private fundraisers where they bring it up directly.[You know: the kind of groupie conclave where Mitt made his 47% remark.] But that is preaching to the already converted. At best, it will encourage the Republican Party's most reliable voters to vote.
There will also be any number of dog whistles at more public forums. Neither will those change anyone's mind. They will merely reassure those who already agree and go over the heads of people who disagree.
But the Democrats are about to turn the anti-gay sentiments of the Republican Party against them. The youth, in particular, are particularly offended by the bigotry. And many will establish Democratic voting habits as a result. And that has the Republican leadership very worried.
Hence, the House will sideline the bill as quickly and quietly as possible. And when President Obama takes unilateral action, the party leadership will show only feeble opposition.
And the Democrats will STILL have an issue that appeals to independents and youth, and which activates their most reliable voters.
The Republicans may well hold the majority of both houses of Congress after the next election because of the OBAMACARE mess. Gee, too bad the democrats only had several years to plan this fiasco.(PROUDLY BROUGHT TO YOU BY "FIASCO SOFTWARE" !:))
