Senate Dems Want Obamacare Waivers
This story isn’t getting a lot of play, but it should be. Many powerful Democrats, even some of the most liberal among them, are supporting what amounts to dismantling of Obamacare, and they are using Republican language to make their case. These Democrats are attempting to repeal some of the funding mechanisms as well as the cost containment measures that were purportedly inherent in the law.
This is a piece by Dr. Susan Berry at Breitbart.com. “With some of their most influential constituent groups facing onerous tax increases that are slated to help fund the law’s mandates and regulations, Senators like Al Franken (D-MN), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Charles Schumer (D-NY), Patty Murray (D-WA), John Kerry (D-MA),” who served in Vietnam, “Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and others — all of whom voted in favor of the law — are aiming to delay or outright repeal parts of Obamacare.”
All told, there are 16 Democrats. Powerful Democrats are trying to defund Obamacare because it’s gonna hit their constituents like a load of bricks, and it’s gonna harm their reelection chances if they happen.
