Many articles have come out about The Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare, not being an important issue in the mid-term Congressional election in November. That is not what is happening in the actual campaigns, however. To see how wrong that is all one has to do is watch is the commercials of those who voted for The Affordable Care Act trying now to distance themselves now that its impact is being felt.
And what is the impact?
Americans from college students to retirees from blue corporations like Alcoa (NYSE: AA) and IBM (NYSE: IBM) are having their health insurance coverage being disrupted. That is never a positive development. It is certainly not from the way it is taking place as a result of ObamaCare. In addition, there have been over 30 delays or changes to The Affordable Care Act by The Obama Administration. Supporters of Obama in Hollywood may not be affected by The Affordable Care Act, but many Americans have been in a very negative manner.
That is why supporters of ObamaCare have lost in every election this year.
The special election for the 13th District of Florida for the United States House of Representatives was especially telling. The Democrat and ObamaCare supporter, Alex Sink, had every advantage: money, media support, and a district that went for Obama in 2008 and 2012. Yet she still lost, in large part due to her support of ObamaCare.
As a result, a “Republican Wave” could be hitting the voting booths on November 4 when Americans go to the polls.
No one will know for sure if that is true until all the ballots have been tallied. But there is do denying that ObamaCare is an important election issue. It will be that way this November. It will continue to be an important issue, no matter how much it is denied.
