According to some, Barack Obama’s most infamous piece of legislation is now crippling under the weight of its own cost, complexities and illegal mandates. If conservative Republicans make gains in both the House and Senate in 2014, Obamacare could actually be effectively rolled back into a mere shadow of it’s intended purpose.
Conservatives were right about ObamaCare, a lefty website concedes.
…Kapur’s argument amounts to the following: Democrats passed a law that had and still has insufficient public support (points 1 and 4), that cannot achieve its goals without unconstitutional means (point 2), that did not allocate the necessary resources to accomplish its objectives (point 3), and that lacks and still lacks even minimal support across the political aisle (all four points).

I sent the link to the article to Republican Insider with the following question: “Legit?” and here is the response I just got back from them:
Presently it is primarily Republican governors across the nation who are collectively providing the strongest resistance and challenge to Obamacare. If the 2014 Midterms were to provide a few more such governors, and many more conservative Republican members of Congress, then that resistance could quickly grow into outright legislative reversal of many if not all of the Obamacare mandates. The four points laid out in the article are all legit and currently challenging the law right now.
I told you last month that there was a real movement happening inside the party led by a more newly elected generation of Republicans. Figures like Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Rand Paul, and Senator Tim Scott, as well as several fantastic governors like Governor Nikke Haley and Governor Scott Walker who are doing amazing work pushing back against the liberal agenda in their own states. All of this could easily come together in another very influential midterm election in 2014. The Republican roster is really starting to look very strong. Certainly as strong as I’ve seen it in quite some time, with some incredible representation among women and minorities despite the false portrayal that continues to be attempted by the Mainstream Media.
Now here is even better news. The Republican leadership is starting to face that reality. Either they get on board with this movement, or they will be overtaken by it. They will either be part of the solution, or looked on as part of the problem and face a primary challenger with announcements beginning as soon as this summer.
I’m not going to promise that Obamacare will be repealed, that would be a very tall order, though how great would that be? I do think it is very possible that we see Obamacare reduced greatly in size and scope to where it barely resembles the original bill or the Obama administration’s intentions, which I would consider in incredibly positive thing for the American people.
Nice to hear from you. Read the WH update. (*NOTE: RI meant to say WHI update) Interesting as always! Don’t know about you but sure sounds like they are willing to get back in the game. At least part time.
