One critical aspect of the 2014 mid-term elections that has been almost universally overlooked is the effect of insurance Open Enrollment meetings held by virtually all private employers just prior to the elections.
Undoubtedly, Obamacare was on the minds of millions, and not in a good way, during October's Open Enrollment meetings. Employees were not just disappointed with their new employer-provided policies, they were downright angry. And this time, they were not angry at their employers, who had the good sense to place the blame where it belonged, they were angry at the Democrats and President Obama. Oh, how prescient the Republicans were when not a single one voted for the ACA.
Note to Democrats, Progressives, Marxists and other purveyors of socialist, government-provided health insurance: Timing is everything. Who would have guessed that the timing of Open Enrollment would have contributed so powerfully to the scorched-earth defeat of the Democrats in 2014? ##
