Dem Strategist: Party is ‘F****d’ Over Obamacare

One high-level Democratic strategist is more than a little worried about the negative impact Obamacare will have on his party’s future. “Dem Party is F****d,” the strategist wrote in the subject line of an email to the National Journal’s Ron Fournier. The unnamed strategist, who Fornier says has strong ties to both Capitol Hill and the White House, said the combination of sticker shock and people being dropped from thier health care plans will doom the Democratic party as the implemenation of Obamacare continues. 

The strategist cited a recent Los Angeles Times article which highlights Californians’ frustrations with the price increases and warns that they “have the greatest potential to erode public support for President Obama’s signature legislation.” 

“We will own this problem forever,” the strategist worried in the e-mail.
