Which Democratic Senator is ‘Hiding’ Over Obamacare?
We know that the Obamacare decision is technically a victory for the
administration. But judging by the reaction of some vulnerable
Democrats, we’re having trouble seeing precisely how that works. Indeed,
at least one Democrat appears to be too frightened to say anything.
How about we all contact our states senators just to see how many more of these money grubbing socialist are in hiding!
Who? Why, Democratic Senator Clare McCaskill of Missouri, who faces
one of the toughest reelection battles this year, and won’t even comment
on whether she agrees with the Court. McCaskill originally voted for
the law, so you’d expect her to be doing a victory lap.
In the event that McCaskill has changed her mind, this won‘t be the
first time she’s reversed course on the national Democratic party.
McCaskill is one of several Democratic lawmakers, for instance, who have
announced that they won’t be attending the Democratic National
Convention this year. Still, it‘s an awfully strange reaction for
someone whose vote on a law that’s considered a landmark was crucial to
its passing in the first place. Again, we know the Obamacare decision is
supposed to be a victory for Democrats. But if Claire McCaskill hasn’t
figured that out, we wonder whether it’s a victory for all of them, or
just the one occupying the oval office.
