Every Senate Dem Up For Re-Election To Back Delay

From Breitbart:

Report: Senate Dems Up for Re-Election in 2014 to Back Delay of Obamacare Enrollment Deadline

By Matthew Boyle | October 23, 2013

On Wednesday, CNN’s Dana Bash tweeted that all Senate Democrats up for re-election in 2014 will reportedly support a delay of Obamacare’s enrollment deadline.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), who is up for re-election in 2014, wrote to Obama on Tuesday and asked him to delay the enrollment deadline for the individual mandate. “Given the existing problems with the website, I urge you to consider extending open enrollment beyond the current end date of March 31, 2014,” Shaheen wrote to the president. "Allowing extra time for consumers is critically important so they have the opportunity to become familiar with the website, survey their options and enroll.”

Doesn’t Sen. Shaheen realize that Obama-Care is the Law Of The Land, and that she tantamount to treason to even suggest changing it?

On Wednesday, Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR), who is facing a tough challenge in his 2014 re-election against Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR), came out in support of Shaheen’s call for a delay of the individual mandate’s enrollment deadline. Pryor had previously been on record as supportive of the mandate as is.

These Democrats made their Obama-Care bed. They should be made to lie in it.

Now, according to CNN’s Bash, the Democratic Party is coordinating an effort to support a delay in the individual mandate.

[Bash tweeted Wednesday morning:] “new: senior dem source tells me to expect every sen dem running in 2014 to back @JeanneShaheen proposal to delay #ACA enrollment deadline.” …

Gee, why would they do that? The news media and the rest of the Democrat Party have told us that Obama-Care would be so loved everyone would be proud of their support of it. It looks like trying to get re-elected does have consequences.

  1. So Obama shut down the government for 16 days, refused to even talk to Republicans about delaying the mandate, and now they’re going to delay it anyway. There’s that “Syria-Style” brinksmanship at work all over again. Draw a line, then deny its existence. Problem being, this time the enemy is the American people, and we’re being shoved over the line through the incompetence of Sebelius and this regime.
