Democrats Pave The Way To Repeal Obamacare

October 9, 2011

President Obama would be surprised to learn that Senate Democrats have paved the way to repeal Obamacare.  Republicans and conservatives have been planning ways to repeal Obamacare and were facing an up hill battle.  However, Senator Reid (D-Nevada) unwittingly gave a gift to those wishing to repeal Obamacare earlier this week.

Senator Reid invoked the so called nuclear option this week to block a vote on the Obama jobs bill, the American Jobs Act.  By using the nuclear option to block a vote on the Obama jobs bill, Senator Reid blindly handed opponents of Obamacare a clear path to repeal Obamacare.

Assuming that Republicans take control of the Senate and the White House in 2012, they would have to overcome a Democrat filibuster in order to repeal Obamacare.  However, with Reid’s actions, a Republican controlled House, Senate, and White House could easily repeal Obamacare with a simple majority vote.

With President Obama falling in the polls, high unemployment, and Senate Democrats defending twice as many seats as Republicans, Republicans have a good shot at taking the Senate and White House in 2012.  If that happens, Republicans will almost certainly repeal Obamacare which remains unpopular in polls.

If Republicans are able to repeal Obamacare following the 2012 elections, former President Obama and Democrats will have Senator Reid to thank.

    Oops. Obama is rising in polls now, while Congress falls. Uhm, that didn’t happen until idiot Repubs got back the house. Keep up the wishful thinking that Repubs will actually rule anything from here on out :)

    That’s just what happens when fearmongering Repubs overstep by protecting their rich buddies, thus resulting in downgraded US credit rating and filibustering to keep 35,000 teachers, firefighters, and police officers out of work hehe

    My point is that it would have been an uphill battle to repeal Obamacare which is already starting to fail (CLASS act).

    Back when the Dems were blocking court nominees, the Republicans threatened using the “nuclear option” in the Senate. Dems screamed it would end our Republic and destroy constituion.

    Seems odd that Reid would use this “end of democracy” tatic to save the President from the embarasment of having his jobs bill fail in the Senate because there weren’t enough Dems to vote for it.
