The Democrats in the famous Obamacare signing photo are rapidly retiring

Posted By Patrick Howley On 11:49 AM 02/24/2014 In | No Comments

Seven of the Democratic lawmakers surrounding President Obama when he signed the Affordable Care Act in 2010 are either now out of Congress or on their way out.

As depicted in this Daily Caller graphic, seven smiling Democrats have gone down or out in the last four years.

Among the retirees:
•Tom Harkin: The Iowa senator announced last year that he will step down after completing his fifth term in 2015.
•Chris Dodd: The Connecticut Democrat chose not to run for re-election in 2010 and now works as a lobbyist for the motion picture industry.
•John Dingell: Michigan congressman Dingell announced his retirement Monday, effective at the end of this year, after nearly six decades in the House.
•Patrick Kennedy: The Rhode Island Democrat’s 2011 retirement marked the first time since 1947 that no Kennedys were in Congress. That phenomenon was short-lived.
•Henry Waxman: The mustachioed California congressman is not seeking re-election in 2014.
•George Miller: The California Democrat announced last month that he will retire from the House at the end of his current term.
•Max Baucus: The Montana Democrat resigned from the Senate this month to become Obama’s ambassador to China, ensuring that he’ll get to deal with the Communists now instead of having to go back and face Montana voters.

Who will be the next Democrat to bite the dust?

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago

The way Obamacare was hobbled together and rammed through Congress was a disgrace. A lot of rats got impaled on Obama's signature pen. Poetic end to the 'rats' career.
Some #NeverTrumpers are like the pockets of Japanese who didn't know the war was over
