The pattern may be disintegrating.

Frightful poll sends Dems screaming

[quote] As millions of Americans receive notices that their insurance policies are being cancelled because of new ObamaCare regulations, Sen. Mary Landrieu, Democrat-La., will offer her own bill that will allow Americans to keep their existing plans. When news broke this week that the president for years led voters to believe they could keep their coverage under his insurance overhaul despite knowing otherwise, Republicans pounced offering legislation to block the Obama rules banning low-post, bare-bones coverage. Landrieu, facing a tough re-election fight in a Republican state, is jumping the line with a bill of her own. “The promise was made and it should be kept,” Landrieu told the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “And it was our understanding when we voted for that, that people when they have insurance, could keep what they had. So, I’m going to be working on that fix.” Sen. Joe Manchin, Democrat-W.Va., is also preparing his own legislation that would delay by a full year the imposition of ObamaCare fines for those who don’t buy insurance. [quote]

There's still three years remaining until the general election; even less for state elections. If enough youth (26-40) become disgusted by broken promises and flat out lies, we may see a cataclysmic shift in the House and Senate that would allow "repeal and replace" in 2016, which I expect a Republican administration would propose on January 21, 2017.
