Hey, remember when Democrats thought that Obamacare wouldn’t still be an issue by Election Day? – And by that I mean Election Day, 2010. Turns out, not so much:
…in the political battle over Obamacare, now in its fifth smash year, the news [that Obama was unilaterally ignoring parts of the employer mandate] was one more indication that the front has moved to the next presidential election and beyond to the incoming administration.
The law “will be on the front burner in Washington and in every Republican campaign through 2016,” predicts Patrick Davis, a GOP consultant in Colorado.
That election likely will mark the fourth straight election cycle in which the ACA is a major issue, if not the central issue—an eternity in politics. Call it Obama’s Forever War.
