Senior Democratic Consultant: ‘Dem Party Is F*cked’ Over ObamaCare
Welcome and thank you for stopping by. Please be aware and advised, this is a CONSERVATIVE BLOG.
Here is some information and my rules:
1) I do not like Liberal Ideology;
2) Conservatives have the voice of reason on my blog;
3) I will delete any comments that are abusive, non-related to the “blog theme” and not debated in a civil manner;
4) I welcome input from all walks of life.
However, this is my blog and I will make the “ultimate” decision on any/all comments.
I encourage “civil” discussion. We may not agree on “ideology”.
However, we can agree on “respect” and at least listening to different perspectives.
Thank you for visiting!

These days, we sometimes read headlines that are almost too good.
Although the headline above seems like it’s one of those “too good” headlines, it’s also accurate.
Don’t take our word for it. Take the word of National Journal‘s Ron Fournier.
“Dem Party is F****d.” That was the subject line of an email sent to me Sunday by a senior Democratic consultant with strong ties to the White House and Capitol Hill. The body of the email contained a link to this Los Angeles Times story about Obamacare “sticker shock:”
“These middle-class consumers are staring at hefty increases on their insurance bills as the overhaul remakes the healthcare market. Their rates are rising in large part to help offset the higher costs of covering sicker, poorer people who have been shut out of the system for years.”
“Although recent criticism of the healthcare law has focused on website glitches and early enrollment snags, experts say sharp price increases for individual policies have the greatest potential to erode public support for President Obama’s signature legislation.”
The emphasis is in Fournier’s piece.
If the Democratic Party truly is “f****d”, then this is a classic case of karma in action. The Democratic Party is experiencing themselves what they’ve been doing to the country since 2009.
Fournier won’t name his source, but we find the report credible. Consider that Jon Stewart, Conan O’Brien, Jay Leno, and other late night comics have been roasting ObamaCare recently. We’ve also seen lamestream media reports, late to the party, starting to take note of how ObamaCare is hurting people. We’ve even seen Democrats start to pooh-pooh the law within the last week.
And then consider this: the full impact of the law hasn’t even been felt yet.
So, yeah, it’s quite likely that the Democratic Party is “f****d”.
