Obamacare Gang of 219 now Obamacare Gang of 178

03 Nov

House members who voted for Obamacare have been reduced by 41  42 seats and counting.

Update:  Renee Ellmers pulled off the upset against Bob “Who ARE YOU?” Etheridge in NC-2.  Gang of 177.

Granted, some pro-Obamacare members saw the hand writing on the wall and decided retirement was preferrable to impending defeat.  Their replacements still went down to defeat.  Among the notables:

David Obey

Bart Stupak*

Brian Baird*

Brad Ellsworth*

Dennis Moore

Vic Snyder

Alan Molohan

Many of these (*) were so-called “hold outs” who eventually caved, meaning they showed cowardice TWICE.  Once before Pelosi and Obama and once before their constituents.

Other victims are incumbents whose people got the opportunity to punish their representatives directly.  Some are long standing incumbents:

Ron Klein** went down to Lt. Col. Allen West.  Thank you, FL-22

Alan Grayson** went down to Dan Webster.  Thank you, FL-8.   Grayson lost big.

Sanford Bishop from GA.

Jim Oberstar

Dina Titus

Baron Hill*

Tom Perriello. ** This one is particularly satisfying.  Obama went there on Friday.

Ciro Rodriguez**

Paul Kanjorski

Jim Boccieri*

I’ll stop now.  Many of these candidates were targeted by Disrupt the Narrative over the last few months.**  Not taking credit.  Just sayin’.

    I am still smiling over Grayson and Periello, very gratifying to make them one-term congressman.

    Allen West is the man, good work sir!

    Glad to see (The Red) Baron Hill go down in flames. He’s the dem who famously told the attendees of a town hall meeting that it was “his” town hall meeting and no one was going to tell him how to “his” congressional office. Couldn;t have happened to a more deserving guy.

      I apologize for not letting you through the squirrel hole. Better late than never, I guess.

      Baron Hill is yet another phony Blue Dog.
