• Dem. Congressman On Obamacare: “We Will Lose Seats In The House”

    I think we may lose the Senate

    During a segment on Boston Herald Radio, U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) said that Obamacare will “bury Democrats” in the 2014 midterm elections.

    “We will lose seats in the House,” Rep. Lynch said. “I am fairly certain of that based on the poll numbers that are coming out from the more experienced pollsters down there. And I think we may lose the Senate. I think that’s a possibility if things continue to go the way they have been … primarily because of health care.”

    Lynch voiced concern with Obamacare’s impending mandates and penalties and the taxes it raises, but he thinks repeal is impossible because of the new people enrolled under the law.

    “There’s all these taxes and fees that are the tough medicine, that up to now they haven’t implemented. I don’t know who’s going to do that [implement delayed mandates],” Lynch said. “Maybe … they expect the next administration is going to put these penalties in place. I think that’s the time it’s going to hit the fan.”

    Undoubtedly, Obama is somewhere crapping his pants and yelling at Debbie Wasserman Schultz for letting Rep. Lynch off his leash.
