Sen. Menendez believes #Obamacare will help Dem Senators in 2014

Sen. Menendez (D-NJ) told CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday that he believes Obamacare will not hurt Democrat Senators running for re-election next year and that it would actually help them now that the roll-out issues are supposedly ‘resolved.’ Via The Hill:

Obamacare will help, not hurt, Democratic senators in the 2014 elections, despite the website’s troubled rollout, Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) said during Sunday’s episode of “Face the Nation” on CBS.

“I think that senators are going to be in a great position” to highlight the benefits of Obamacare, he said.

Senators running for reelection can point to the fact that President Obama’s healthcare plan helps to “eliminate some of the greatest evils” of the country’s previous healthcare system, he said.

The fact that so many people are trying to access the healthcare shopping website shows that the “underlying product … is critically important,” Menendez added.

Menendez compared the Obamacare website problems to a surge of shoppers, eager to purchase a product, struggling to all fit in a store’s front door.

After recent improvements, it “sounds like the front door has been opened successfully,” he said.

The millions who have lost access to their primary care physicians and/or insurance as a result of Obamacare in critical states like North Carolina, and the millions more who are expecting to lose access to their primary care physicians and/or insurance in the coming weeks are currently trying to desperately figure out what their options are, and were unavailable for comment.

Reminder: Democrats in the House and Senate, and in the Obama White House, knew that millions were going to lose their health insurance – in spite of their numerous lies to the contrary. They knew.

    Probably next November will be a real test of people’s intelligence. Will they stay with the party that keeps handing out freebies and spending our nation into insolvency? Or.. will they wise up and smell the tyranny… and vote for freedom & liberty. Not that the GOP doesn’t have plenty to answer for–they certainly do! however, some of us are well aware of the grass roots Tea Party Patriots and the concept of getting back to basics. People will either remember the LIES and phony promises used to sell 0bamaCare and maybe even wise up to the indoctrination of 0bamaCore—or they will once again prove the old adage that Ignorance is Bliss?
    I sincerely hope and pray that November 2014 opens the door in America to walk back the socialism and threats to our Constitution and freedom & liberty.

    Still relying on that HOPE! All they are getting is change and lies while Michelle Obama says ‘my husband never lies’! Or was that Hillary?

  3. Hopefully on election day, the LIV’s (Low Information Voters) will all be in a line receiving some sort of freebie (at taxpayer expense-1/3 of this country supports the other 2/3) and not be in the voting line. That would be a dream come true.

    As for the Honorable Senator Menendez (D-NJ), he would do well to take up permanent residence in the DomRep with his harem of 16 year old girls and escape from the prosecution that he has earned and so justly deserves.

    And for the rest of the Dems & RINOS, they all should be booted out and forced to find work in the DPS (Dreaded Private Sector) which should be good for a few laughs. Ot they will wind up on the staff at the Kennedy School of Government (known in Boston as “the place where all the losers go.”) spewing their theories that have been proven not work.

    In short, it is time for us to turn the tide and embrace the values upon which this country was founded.

    The thought occurred to me that Menendez has to be the sleaziest senator ever.

    But then I remembered, Reid is a senator…
