Pesky facts

Don’t go about blaming the health care bill for Democratic losses. Those who voted against the bill lost their seats at a higher rate than those who voted for it.

  1. I don’t really see what that has to do with it. It was more likely (we’ll never know really why) that things like the health care bill created a democratic stigma. Guilty by association lets call it.

  2. Now that the economy is starting to turn around due to Obama’s policies, they will give credit to the Republicans now that they control the house, even though they opposed most of it every step along the way. The same thing will happen when the effects of Health care reform further go into effect and people will support it.

  3. It makes absolutely no difference if Obamas policies saved the world or have kept it down.

    They created their own stigma by ramming through health care. Again it doesn’t really matter if it is a good thing or a bad thing, I’m not saying one way or the other, But did it need to be such a massive thing? Its completely unintelligible because of its size. Have you read it, Bob? You, Michael?

    They made something so large and complex that no one without months of lawyering would truly understand the thing.

    Add to that that they claimed unemployment would stay below 8% and its been above than almost since the claim was made.

    You can’t make the claim that “it would have been worse”. That can’t be proved and a lot of people just don’t buy it.

    Yes, yes, the economy didn’t help them either. Bob, you really think the economy is “starting to turn around”? The summer of “recovery” amounted to absolutely nothing.

    The health care bill is very likely going to get defunded and most of it won’t go into effect. So I don’t see people getting excited. Your usual claim of “people are too stupid to see how much good the dems have done” Is yet another reason there was a “stigma” than only the most secure dem districts overcame.

    The democrats created this problem and now they have paid the price.

  4. I don’t think anyone thinks voters fell in love with republicans, they fell out of love with democrats.
