Democrats Pave The Way To Repeal Obamacare
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.
