healthcare bill brought down the Dems

Indeed the consensus is that it was the healthcare bill that brought down the Dems.

They Democrat advisers on cable tonight are saying that even though they advised the Dems to hold back a bit on the bill, the leaders like Reid and Pelosi went full bore ahead thinking that "once the American people see what is in the bill, they will love it"

The Dem leaders were wrong. For the most part the people did not love the bill. They hate it, in the form it was constructed, like with the individual mandate, and the other onerous mandates on business. One side effect: rates are going up next year already.

What they ignored were the town hall meetings, like the one that Specter held with people literally screaming at them with their concerns, and the pompous Dems handwaved the concerns away with ridiculous claims.

Remember Specter saying that Doctors will work for much less pay because the are altruistic. Rediculous.
Remember them saying that the $500 Billion that the bill takes out of Medicare won't hurt or reduce coverage for senious.

Give me a break.

And the chickens are coming home to roost...

Loosing 61+ seats is the biggest loss since the 1930's -- It's one big time repudiation for Obama/Pelosi/Reid and their policies.
