Investors.com features an editorial Tuesday claiming that six months ago former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi promised that Democrats would collectively “stand tall” for Obamacare.
As November 2014 draws near, have Democrats changed their mind about the ACA? Pelosi now said in a weekend interview, “We’re not running on or from the Affordable Care Act.”
Georgia Senate candidate, Michelle Nunn, will not reveal what her Obamacare vote would have been, if she were in Congress in 2010. The same is true for Kentucky’s Allison Lundergan Grimes and Nebraska House Candidate Pete Festersen. Montana Senator John Walsh, says he was far removed from Washington, D.C. when the ACA passed, “preparing soldiers and airman to deploy to Iraq and Afghanistan.”
Nationwide, labor support, usually a Democratic stronghold, may already be flagging. Las Vegas service workers are threatening a strike next month over Obamacare-based increases. Flight attendants with Alaska Airlines voted against a contract because it purportedly did not afford enough protection “against Obamacare’s steep price tag.”
