…I wonder when @RepJohnYarmuth is going to retire, then.

Because it was kind of dumb for him to say this.

John Yarmuth is in a D+3 district… in Kentucky, no less. He also was acting a lot differently about this issue in 2009:

U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth says he’s willing to stake his political career on voting for a health care overhaul that he thinks would help most Americans.

[snip]

Yarmuth stayed calm in the face of boos and catcalls from some in the audience. He warned that the current health-care system is an unsustainable drain on businesses and the nation’s economy.

Somehow I get the feeling that John Yarmuth is no longer willing to stake his political career on Obamacare.

    Who’s running against him in 2014?

      Good question, the GOP seems very weak on the ground in my neck of the woods. I hardly ever saw his challenger from two years ago, and I didn’t see any advertising.

        Excuse me, but do you live in KY? Can I ask you a question? Are the people of KY in favor of Obamacare? Nothing against you personally, but there seem to be a lot of elected reps from KY who like to suck up to Obamacare.

          Around Louisville… I don’t have a scientific poll or anything but my sense of things is yes. The traditional blue model of doing things is still very strong here. Also, there areb’t a lot of alternatives to the MSM so the media tends to be a bit of an echo chamber. Hell, they had a special section in the Sunday paper after (iirc) the website went live singing its praises.
