In a piece for The Hill by Rick Manning, the headline was,”ObamaCare, the gift that keeps on giving for Republicans”
So much for the hopes of the supporters of The Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare, that Americans cherish it and damage would not be suffered in the November elections.
Other articles have reported that The Affordable Care Act will remain a major issue in the Congressional mid-term elections. Polls have revealed it. Experts have predicted massive gains for the Republicans due to ObamaCare, among other issues. Many Democrats who supported ObamaCare are trying to distance themselves from it now.
Alex Sink, who lost in the special election in Florida for the 13th District in the US House of Representatives, certainly lived out the headline from Manning’s article in The Hill, which is speciality newspaper covering Congress.
Manning notes that, “ObamaCare is the political gift that keeps on giving for Republicans hoping to take control of the U.S. Senate. Not only are millions of Americans projected to tragically have their insurance policies cancelled due to the law’s onerous regulations, but in the state of Minnesota, the largest provider to those who signed up using the state’s health insurance exchange has found that they cannot afford to continue doing business in the state under the law.”
He furthers that, “But cancellation notices are not the only way that ObamaCare will negatively impact Democrats’ political fortunes. Voters will be hit hard later this month and in October with notices that their insurance premiums are rising 7.5 percent on average, or more than four times this year’s inflation rate.”
Not to mention Obama promising Americans on many occasions that if they liked their health insurance plan that they could keep it
Rick Manning is Vice President of Public Policy and Communications for Americans for Limited Government.
His article in The Hill details why ObamaCare supporters have lost and are in trouble. Media coverage and Hollywood celebrities are not enough, based on Manning’s piece. Election results so far back up that contention.
