Democrats' reasonable fear about what Obamacare will do to their 2014 election hopes

Here is another quote by a candidate running for the special election Tuesday in South Carolina who distanced herself from Obamacare.  From Politico:
South Carolina’s Elizabeth Colbert Busch, a favorite of the Democratic left, couldn't get away from the law fast enough, calling Obamacare “extremely problematic” — a quote that got wide play from GOP groups like the National Republican Senatorial Committee. . . . 
. . . On Tuesday, a Kaiser Family Foundation poll showed just 35 percent of Americans hold a favorable view of the law, right as the administration is planning to roll it out. 

All the panic forced President Barack Obama to rush to the law's defense, saying at a news conference Tuesday: “Even if we do everything perfectly, there'll still be, you know, glitches and bumps. … And that's pretty much true of every government program that's ever been set up.” 
Obama’s goal was to dismiss what he called “all the hue and cry and, you know, sky-is-falling predictions about this stuff.” 
Don't bet on that happening. Democrats have been fretting about the law since it passed, and they're not exactly falling in love with it now either. . . .
The problem is that while Democrats are distancing themselves from Obamacare now, they virtually voted for it before.  The law wouldn't have passed if all the Democrats in the Senate hadn't voted for it.

I kind of specialize in Second Amendment issues but being the party of GUN BANS and OBAMACARE would, I hope, detract from the Democrats' appeal at the voting booth. I know I personally wouldn't vote for a Democrat if Bloomberg made me a rich man for doing so. I suspect I'm not the only one in that category.

I've voted for manygood democrats on the local level. On the national level (senators, house members, and president) the republican party holds a slight edge with me but the problem is they are just as concerned about increasing their own power as the democrats are. I understand that there are exceptions to this but the vast majority of both parties are completely interchangeable and hell bent upon their own agendas, leading to the destruction of what was once the best nation on earth
