Come on! There is zero chance healthcare.gov will be fixed by November 30. And neither Barack Obama nor a single Democratic senator believes this will be the case. The jig is up Democrats. You all lied to Americans from the start. Now it is payback time. Midterm elections are just around the corner and you all are going to have to run for re-election on “I voted for the job killing Obamacare creature.” Good luck! The Wall Street Journal has more here:
Democratic senators took their complaints about the troubled launch of the federal health law directly to the White House Wednesday, as the surprisingly close governor’s race in Virginia prompted some in the party to warn that they would face voter backlash next year if the problems weren’t fixed.
Republicans and a number of Democratic officials say distaste for the health law aided Ken Cuccinelli, the losing GOP candidate in Virginia, who focused heavily on the health law in the campaign’s final weeks. Polls for weeks had longtime Democratic fundraiser Terry McAuliffe breezing to an easy victory, but he won Tuesday by less than three percentage points.
Among the more than a dozen Democratic senators who pressed President Barack Obama to fix problems with the law’s implementation that have frustrated many Americans were several senators who face particularly tough races next November, including Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Mark Pryor of Arkansas and Mark Begich of Alaska.
At a Senate hearing Wednesday, meanwhile, Democratic lawmakers warned Health and Human Services SecretaryKathleen Sebelius that she must fix the troubled health insurance website by the end of November. “There is no room for error. You must meet—and I prefer you beat—that deadline,” Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D., Mont.) told her.
