    Will Michigan Democrats Fly Right?

    Today there is a vote to repeal Obamacare.

    Will Democrat congressmen from Michigan join the common sense crusade to repeal the miserable legislation that has proven to be too costly for families and business, or will they double down on the progressive stupidity that brought it about? Will Gary Peters, who plans on advancing his career with a US Senate run stand with working families who are finding their hours reduced, and premiums exploding?

    Today, Michigan Congressman and 2014 Senate candidate Gary Peters will have another opportunity to vote against the train wreck, formerly known as ObamaCare.

    For years, Gary Peters has been a "proud", staunch supporter of the President's costly health care law. But, a report by the non-partisan Society of Actuaries shows that ObamaCare will increase the costs of medical claims in Michigan by more than 25% and by an average of 32% nationally.  Personally, I have seen 70% increase already.  It has forced our business to make other changes.

    And how does Senate Democratic Leadership think the ObamaCare roll-out is going?

    Recall the words of ObamaCare Architect, Sen. Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus

    "I just see a huge train wreck coming down." -
    And surprisingly even THIS by Sen Harry Reid:
    "unless we implement this properly it's going to be a train wreck, and I agree with [Baucus]."
    And Schmuck Shumer?:
    "ObamaCare could raise premiums"
    Of course Senate Democrats have a solution: More taxpayer dollars are needed to stop the oncoming health care disaster. Yeah, ObamaCare already needs a 'taxpayer bailout'.

    Remember when..."The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act--ObamaCare--was sold to Americans as the solution to the problems plaguing our nation's healthcare system."?

    Finished below.

    Michigan Dems like Gary Peters followed Nancy Pelosi's marching orders and told Michigan voters that he "proudly worked to pass" ObamaCare. And when Americans objected, Peters Levin, and others joined Pelosi and jammed it up Michigan's backside anyway.

    NRSC Communications Director Brad Dayspring says

    "Over the next year, ObamaCare will go from being an 'abstract' discussion to a real life pain for too many Michigan families and workers. Very few issues are as personal to voters as the health and well-being of their families. If Peters again votes to keep ObamaCare in place, he will take ownership of the tax hikes, mandates, fees, penalties, and general confusion that implementation of law will cause Michiganders over the next eight months."
    Total cluster foxtrot ..

    But what the heck.  Ol Gary has an opportunity before him: Will he see the writing on the wall and vote to repeal this costly, disastrous health care mandate on behalf of Michigan families and businesses? Or will he continue to vote in lockstep with Nancy Pelosi's "see what's in it" package?

    Will the rest of Congressional Democrats from Michigan recognize failure for what it is?

    We aren't holding our breath, but we can always hope.
