Oh boy.

Via WaPo:

In 2012, the meta-pundit narrative turned on whether the election would be a choice between two visions for the future (as Dems hoped) or a referendum on the anemic Obama status quo (as Republicans predicted). The outcome surprised observers who thought the weight of the bad economy made the latter inevitable.

Now Democrats are going to attempt a repeat performance around Obamacare, at a time when the law’s travails have triggered widespread predictions that it, too, will serve as the focus of a referendum, just as the Obama economy was supposed to last year.

I’m told the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is set to launch a new campaign designed to refocus the debate on the Republican position on health care, which Dems will widely label as ”Cruz Care.”

With Ted Cruz set to roll out his own health plan — one that will probably look like the usual grab bag of GOP reform ideas, which just aren’t a reform alternative to Obamacare – Dems plan to tar GOP Senate candidates across the country with it, by hitting them as proponents of “Cruz Care.” Many GOP candidates also embraced Cruz’s Obamacare-driven government shutdown.

If the Rats are stuck with this dumb ass plan, they are done and they know it. People HATE Zerocare. Any alternative to it will be looked at as a good thing, not a detriment. The only way the Rats can save themselves now is by starting a major war and distracting from Zerocare.

Pathetic, but I have no doubt Ted Cruz is smart enough to work this to his advantage.

He who laughs last...

At this point I'd take Mickey Mouse care over the rats O-care. Anything would be better.

I'm not sure even the rats will be able to distract from this debacle to save themselves either - once the fat hits the fan after the first of the year and another 150 million lose their employer based coverage they are going to be scrambling.

They are going to have to get on board with the Republicans wanting a repeal of this monstrosity to even come close to saving themselves and even then a majority of voters are still going to know they voted for it so they own it.

Wishful thinking I know.....haven't had my 2nd cup of coffee yet
