Yeh, win the battle, White House, lose the war
people hate O-care
to heck with what the Supreme Court thinks
Thank You, Scalia
I think you are wrong. And I also think that no Republican would dare break Obamacare too badly regardless, because too many of their own supporters are beneficiaries. They'll talk about it, try to make a bit of rhetorical gains by it, but it's all going to prove insincere.
Look what happened in the last few elections
said elections were not even that long ago... yet some have already forgotten
The 2014 election would have been a hard one for Democrats no matter what. Pretty much the whole map was against them. Low turnout was a big problem for them, and honestly I think they made a pretty big tactical error. They decided to run from President Obama like it's 2016 because he has low approval ratings, and so Obama stayed pretty quiet. I think his lack of leadership during the election is both part of why he had low approval ratings, and also why the Democrats got so badly smoked. And it's why Democrats from the red states sounded like Republicans, and had a newfound love of guns and coal.
The American People generally like President Obama when he leads. And since that election, he's been leading with a kind of vigor that everyone pretty much had decided was gone.
Rex is right on this one, if for the wrong reason. The Supreme Court's decisions are secondary to the screwing conservatives have received in recent weeks from Boehner, Ryan, etc. That will be the reason many stay home, because voting for them again CLEARLY MAKES NO DIFFERENCE and IS COUNTERPRODUCTIVE TO CONSERVATIVE INTERESTS. The SC ruling is just icing on that cake. It won't be those who stay home who "hand the White House" to Hillary, it will be the GOP and, to a lesser extent, Republican SC appointees who've done that.
people who don't vote deserve what they get
"Have to pass it before we see what's in it." Pelosi.
“It’s declassified and made public once it’s agreed to." Ryan.
