Dem Strategist: ‘Party Is F****d’

sad_obamaRon Fournier, an honest liberal at National Journal, reported Monday that a senior Democrat strategist, with close ties to the White House, sent him an email over the weekend. The subject line was “Dem Party Is F****d.” The substance of the email was the ongoing failures with ObamaCare. Not the website problems, however. The looming problem for the Democrat party is the actual impact of the program.

In his email, the Democrat strategists excerpted a story from the LA Times about the sticker shock many middle class Californians were experiencing with the new insurance policies under ObamaCare. President Obama repeatedly promised that “if you like your plan, you can keep it.” It turns out, that wasn’t true. The coverage mandates in ObamaCare have forced many insurers to cancel their existing policies, forcing individuals into more expensive coverage.

“I was all for Obamacare,” wrote a young woman complaining about a 50 percent rate hike, “until I found out I was paying for it.”

ObamaCare was passed over three years ago. Democrats, at the time, predicted that the public would come to approve the new program after it was implemented. Just four weeks into implementation, Democrats are scurrying to mitigate the effects of the law. Vulnerable Democrats in the Senate are pushing to delay the individual mandate, an action that would completely undo the economic assumptions underlying ObamaCare.

Seasoned Democrats may worry that the party is f****d because of ObamaCare, but they may still win a reprieve. The GOP Establishment has declared war on the Tea Party, whose every prognostication of ObamaCare has been proved right. Typically, the GOP is ready to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    I also sent a straight talking e-mail. I am not a party person,any party, I don’t really care what happens to the Demo or Republicans or even this, now corrupt, Tea party, I do care what happens to the USA. From the beginning I wrote that Obama was trying to satisfy his Progressive and not slide into Socialism by
    finding a way of creating a Capitalist Socialism. Using Capitalism’s business system to provide a health care for those who needed it, That is why they need sufficient people to sign up and make the freeloaders buy insurance. Lets call it what it is, Mandate is un american, so how do you make free loaders pay? Take it from there and you see what he is hassling with, like being the Good Samaritan to the needy by using profit from some to pay the fee for others. It does not work because Obama and most people today does not understand the core of being an American. They will volunteer at the first call such as free clinic but they want to decide and participate where their money and effort goes. And they most likely will not be too generous to illegal aliens
    or the new breed always looking or hand out.
