Debbie Wasserman Schultz is the head of the Democratic National Committee. She told reporters the following: “Democrats will run on the Affordable Care Act and win.”
Women will vote for Democrats who campaign on the basis of their support for ObamaCare. This is because “we know that women are already benefiting significantly from the part of ObamaCare that’s already been implemented.”
Meanwhile, Obama’s poll results are tanking. Over half of those polled this last week say that the President is neither honest nor trustworthy.
According to the survey, conducted last Monday through Wednesday, 40% say the President can manage the government effectively. That 40% figure is down 12 percentage points from June and is the worst score Obama received among the nine personal characteristics tested in the new poll.
“A lot of attention has focused on the President’s numbers on honesty in new polling the past three weeks, but it looks like the recent controversy over Obamacare has had a bigger impact on his status as an effective manager of the government, and that may be what is really driving the drop in Obama’s approval rating this fall,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said.
Not to worry, Mrs. Wasserman Schultz tells her colleagues. Get front and center behind ObamaCare. This is your one-way ticket to re-election a year from now.
On Saturday, November 30, www.Healthcare.gov will be up and running, ready for millions of people to sign up for affordable healthcare. The President’s man in charge of the website has said so. Since he has also been chosen to be the President’s senior economic advisor, we know he is on top of things.
On October 25, he announced this: “By the end of November, healthcare.gov will work smoothly for the vast majority of users. The healthcare.gov site is fixable. It will take a lot of work, and there are a lot of problems that need to be addressed.”
I have no doubt that he is advising Mrs. Wasserman-Schultz. They both exude confidence.
On November 25, the White House assured reporters that on November 30, 50,000 people will be able to log onto the site simultaneously and buy policies. It’s official. We can bank on it.
So, let us sit back and enjoy what happens on November 30. The press conference on Monday, December 2, should be fun to watch, too. We will get to hear the report on how the vast majority of healthcare policy buyers have begun to buy policies.
On the other hand, we may learn that the website for the vast majority of healthcare buyers are trying to log onto a website that remains, at best, half-vast.
