Work cut out for Dems

With about seven months until November’s crucial mid-term elections, Democrats have their work cut out for them starting right now. The Republican Tea Party has not only unmercifully bashed the Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s signature issue accomplishment, but has also opposed almost everything else Obama has done or proposed.

Democrats have to hope the Obamacare-bashing tea party will fail in its attempt to take control of the Senate and retain control of the House. Anti-Obama, anti-government Republicans have no vision, only an unjust agenda that overwhelmingly favors the rich at the expense of the majority middle class and poor. Democrats have to work hard to show the American people that Obamacare is working, despite Republican efforts to repeal it.

Obamacare has a bright future, but if it is to move forward, Democrats must work even harder in getting their voters to the polls on Election Day 2014 than they did in the successful 2012 presidential election.
