Barack Obama told cheering House Democrats at a party retreat last February, “I would expect that Nancy Pelosi is going to be speaker again pretty soon.”
It was as if the Democrats had forgotten that their ObamaCare law they passed in 2010 would take effect in 2014.
Or maybe they actually thought ObamaCare would help them in 2014.
Obama and his allies put off the arrival of Obamacare until after the president faced re-election in 2012. His administration also delayed releasing key rules regarding the law until after the election for fear of angering voters.
Now they can't put it off any longer. 2014 will be the year Democrats pay for Obamacare.
