Are Nervous Democrats Starting to Eye Obamacare Repeal?

On one end of the spectrum you have down-with-the-ship partisans, who continue to beat their chests about running on Obamacare in 2014. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has doubled down on this theme, and Nancy Pelosi is on board, too. Stand tall, or whatever:

Then you've got the David Plouffes of the world, who are reduced to adorable wish-casting disguised as "analysis:"

David Plouffe to ABC: GOP Plan to Run Against Obamacare an 'Impossibility'


Sure, Dave. Whatever you say. Finally, there are the teeth-grinding, sweat-drenched Democrats who are casting their gaze ahead to next fall with increasing alarm. Almost 40 members of Pelosi's caucus cut the White House loose by voting for the "Keep Your Plan" Act last week, and numerous Senate Democrats have stated on the record that the president's alleged Obamacare "fix" is insufficient. The Washington Post's Chris Cillizza suggests that the coming Democratic circular firing squad may not be avoidable. Taking the internecine divisions a step further, National Journal correspondent Josh Kraushaar wonders if more Democrats might start flirting with the "R" word:

The shift of a few seats in either or in both houses is interesting, but unless it results in veto-proof majorities in both houses, it does not result in real political power.

And as always, each defeat of a sitting democrat depends on the quality of the Republican alternative.

Much conservative attention seems devoted instead, to talk of replacing Republicans, none of whom voted for Obamacare.

Last hour on Greta she had the followup on the woman from Washington Obama used in his Rose Garden appearance in October to tout how great OCare is.  This woman had gotten onto the exchange and bought insurance for herself and family with a big subsidy and was happy as a clam. 

Fast forward. Washington State SCREWED UP and the price was quoted wrong and to make matters worse she doesn't qualify for the subsidy after all... the end result - she cannot afford what is offered and without a subsidy she is SOL so she is going without any insurance at all now thanks to OCare.  The person reporting to Greta said this woman once so proud to be used as an example for Obama says (now) she would like to go find a rock and climb under it to hide.

The democrats that voted for this turkey, deserve to be voted out for incompetence and negligence.

Pass it before reading it? Aspects which if focused upon, make them all liars from day one?

Keep your plan, keep your octors, won't increase deficit?
