Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) says the worst is yet to come with Obamacare. When the various provisos that Obama has delayed by decree finally kick in, and such things as the “Cadillac tax” on plans that are above those allowed under the Affordable Care Act take effect, the situation is “going to hit the fan,” Lynch said in an interview with Boston Herald Radio April 17. The Democrat was the only member of the Massachusetts Congressional delegation to vote against Obamacare in 2010.
Lynch said that it is now impossible to repeal Obamacare because of the number of people who have signed up for it through the state exchanges (many of whom have yet to pay their initial premiums). The regime claims that number is over 8 million. A New York Times/CBS poll released last December noted that, even though they face fines for not doing so, half of the people who said they did not intend to sign up cited cost as the main reason.
Primarily because of Obamacare, Lynch said, Democrats will take big political hits in the November elections. “We will lose seats in the House. I am fairly certain of that, based on the poll numbers that are coming out from the more experienced pollsters down there, and I think we may lose the Senate.”
First elected in 2001, Lynch is a member of the Financial Services Committee and the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, where he serves as Ranking Member on the Subcommittee on Federal Workforce, U.S. Postal Service and the Census. Lynch is also a member of the Subcommittee on National Security.
Lynch and Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) have been leading the effort in the House to force the regime to declassify the censored 28-page section of the report by the Congressional Joint Inquiry on the 9/11 attacks.
