Dem. Congressman on Obamacare: The Worst Is Yet to Come, “It’s Going to Hit the Fan”

Democratic, Massachussetts’ Congressman Stephen Lynch, cautions fellow Democrats are in real political trouble, so much so, they could lose both House and Senate seats in the upcoming mid-terms. It’s a scenario made possible thanks to the Affordable Care Act. Mediaite.com, the blog run by ABC legal analyst, Dan Abrams, reports Lynch told Boston Herald Radio: “Obamacare – well, you know – is about to hit the fan.”

“There are parts of Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, that were postponed because they are unpalatable,” Lynch said. “As these provisions come into effect, the administration thus far is saying: ‘Gee, we really can’t handle this right now, so we’re going to delay it.’”

Lynch also added, “That is a huge tax. It’s the first time in this country’s history that we have actually taxed health care. We used to treat it like food that people would die without it. Well, we’re in a new day now.”
Some respected pollsters have urged Democrats to not defend Obamacare. These include Celinda Lake who strongly suggested to Democrats in March, after releasing her own in-depth survey for George Washington University, “Say it was flawed from the beginning, and we’re going to fix it.”

The Hill.com contends there is a strong likelihood of this strategy backfiring, it could be viewed “as an implicit rebuke of the 111th Congress, the Democratic Party’s leadership in the legislature, and President Barack Obama.” North Carolina-based political consultant Thomas Mills, of the firm Bates and Mills, sees things differently. “Democrats need to start making the case for Obamacare”. . . “They all voted for it, they own it, so they can’t get away from it. So they’d better start defending it.”
