ObamaCare Opposition Mounts

By Jay Sekulow1334951960000

The numbers have been very consistent. A majority of Americans surveyed have repeatedly rejected ObamaCare since it was pushed through Congress and signed into law by President Obama two years ago. This week, 56% of voters polled by Rasmussen said they want to see the flawed health care law repealed.

And, now more members of Congress are lining to express their concern as well - including some prominent Democrats.

Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), one of President Obama's strongest allies, now says ObamaCare was a "mistake." As Rep. Frank put it: "I think we paid a terrible price for health care."

And, consider this from Rep. Dennis Cardoza (D-CA) who was also critical of the push to get ObamaCare through Congress. He lashed out at the way his Democrat colleagues handled the issue, saying he repeatedly called on his leaders to figure out how they were going to pay for the bill, and then figure out what they could afford.

Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA) was more blunt. He predicted ObamaCare will be the president's "biggest downside" heading into the November election.  

The fact is this issue will be front and center in November. As I detailed in a post a couple of weeks ago, President Obama launched an unprecedented effort to politicize ObamaCare just hours after the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the law. We reported extensively about the president chastising the Justices who might vote against ObamaCare by referring to them as "activist" and "unelected" judges.

And, let's not forget that the Obama Administration is quietly diverting roughly $500 million in taxpayer funds to the IRS to help implement ObamaCare. That's right. The Administration is now providing funding outside the normal appropriations process for ObamaCare, with no guarantee that the high court will uphold the constitutionality of this law.

The November election is now 200 days away. We will get a decision by the Supreme Court on ObamaCare by the end of the term, likely at the end of June - teeing up ObamaCare near the top of the list of issues facing voters on Election Day.
