The disastrous roll-out of ObamaCare is exerting a profound gravitational pull on the nation's political climate. Obama's approval ratings are reaching the lowest point of his presidency. The short-term advantage Democrats enjoyed over Republicans in the wake of the government shutdown has disappeared. Earlier this year, Democrats entertained thoughts of winning back the House. If current trends hold, they would be lucky to hold on to the seats they have.
Anger among Democrats in Congress is boiling over, as their political fortunes suffer from the fallout of ObamaCare. “Here we are, we’re supposed to be selling this to people, and it’s all screwed up,” The Hill reported one House Dem chief of staff said. “This either gets fixed or this could be the demise of the Democratic Party."
