Our local lefty blogger likes to post articles by Republican Consultants explaining how Republicans can never win another election unless they change their conservative views and move to the middle.
Here is a view from a Democratic Consultant on their future in the next election cycle.
By Ron Fournier
Incoming from Democrats:
“Dem Party is F****d.” That was the subject line of an email sent to me Sunday by a senior Democratic consultant with strong ties to the White House and Capitol Hill. The body of the email contained a link to this Los Angeles Times story about Obamacare “sticker shock:”
“These middle-class consumers are staring at hefty increases on their insurance bills as the overhaul remakes the healthcare market. Their rates are rising in large part to help offset the higher costs of covering sicker, poorer people who have been shut out of the system for years.”
“Although recent criticism of the healthcare law has focused on website glitches and early enrollment snags, experts say sharp price increases for individual policies have the greatest potential to erode public support for President Obama’s signature legislation.”
It looks to me like the Republicans who have been against ObamaCare from the git-go may yet have a chance to win some elections. I wonder what our local lefty Purple Purgatory blogger has to say about this consultants view.
