Another Day, Another Incumbent Democrat Criticizing Obamacare

Miami-area Democratic Congressman Joe Garcia must be feeling the pressure with a campaign ad like this. No longer anecdotal, this ad is evidence of a full-blown trend, one which the National Democratic Party and the Administration must find disturbing.

Attempting to win over anti-Obama(care) voters, the narrator slams the President’s policies, saying Garcia “took the White House to task.” Though it doesn’t come right out and say that Obamacare is flawed, he acknowledges it by saying that he is working to fix the program.

President Obama has grown toxic for incumbent Democrats. Funny, considering many rode his coattails into office. Senators up for reelection won’t campaign with him. Heck, even Senators not up for reelection say they wouldn’t campaign with him.

While Garcia might hope that voting for the stop-gap legislation to let people keep their existing health plan will keep some voters in his corner, he should know better. Anyway, that legislation was made invalid by his party leader’s executive order.

I appreciate that Garcia is self-aware enough to realize that Obamacare is not a winnable election strategy. This shows he has some common sense. I can’t say the same for all his colleagues. But it’s a little too late for a politically-motivated change of heart.

Representative, your Democratic Party made the bed. Uncomfortable? You don’t say!

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
