CAPITOL UPDATE: “The Age Of Obama Is Crumbling”
November 18, 2013
Last week, Capitol Hill sources indicated a growing number of Democrat defections on the Obamacare issue. This information was then substantiated by the 39 House Democrats who, in a bi-partisan move, sided with the Republican majority in supporting a “Keep Your Health Plan” bill that is meant to alleviate the growing outrage from Americans who now face cancellation of their existing health care plans due to the Obamacare mandates. Today, these same sources now indicate a spreading sense that Barack Obama’s second term is all but over already, and that for Democrats, an “every person for themselves” mentality has taken over as the 2014 Midterm Election looms.
“The halls of Congress are filled with people bracing themselves for more bad news from the Obama White House. The Republican leadership should be on the ball a lot more with this, but they are taking a “stand back and let them drown” approach. I understand part of the wisdom in going about it like that, but still think more direct messaging of just how badly the White House is messing up would pay off. I’ll say this, you don’t hear people complaining about Senator Cruz anymore! At least not from our side.
There is also a move underway to challenge Harry Reid after the midterms regardless of whether or not Democrats hold onto the Senate. Not a lot of open talk about it right now, because he’s a nasty one to cross, but it seems there will be a serious challenge to his position as Majority Leader. Funny thing is, hardly any word about challenging McConnell, who I would love to see moved out of the way. Working on it.
