How Obamacare Killed Former Democratic Frontrunner’s Political Dreams…

Allyson Schwartz began the year the frontrunner to win her party’s nomination as the next governor of Pennsylvania. The Philadelphia based congresswoman had name recognition, state party support, approval from the D.C. power brokers, and friendly media coverage.
Then she came out swinging in support of Obamacare, and it was all downhill for her from there…
“I’m proud of Obamacare!”
“I’m proud of it. And I believe the other Democrats in this race should also speak up and talk about their pride in this law,”
So said Congresswoman Schwartz, repeating that mantra in a political ad, interviews, and an appearance on MSNBC, and so went her poll numbers soon after – DOWN-DOWN-DOWN.
Just a few months ago, she was leading a growing field of primary contenders. Now she sits at just 7% support – and remember reader, that is 7% of support among REGISTERED DEMOCRAT voters in her state! That puts her well behind new Democrat frontrunner and businessman Tom Wolf, who currently enjoys 33% support.
Rumors are that the Obama administration pushed Congresswoman Schwartz to make a more bold assertion of her support of the divisive healthcare law. The administration is increasingly desperate to have an example they can use to state Obamacare is a winning issue.
It would appear Congresswoman Schwartz’s now collapsing political race is a clear sign of just the opposite.
Obamacare is political poison, even among Democrat voters, and that spells doom for all members of the party who are the ones responsible for a law the vast majority of Americans resent more and more.
