Landrieu SHELLACKED in Runoff – 29 Democrat Senators Who Voted for Obamacare No Longer in Office
Another one bites the dust.
Mary Landrieu was shellacked in Saturday night’s run-off election.
Landrieu lost her election to Republican challenger Rep. Bill Cassidy by 12 points.
With 100 percent of the precincts reporting late Saturday, Cassidy had received 56 percent of the vote, to 44 percent for Landrieu.
58 Democratic Senators and two liberal Independents voted to pass Obamacare in 2009.
Today 29 of those senators are out of officer.
The Examiner reported this back in November:
On Dec. 24, 2009, the Democratic-controlled Senate passed President Obama’s healthcare law with a filibuster-proof 60-vote majority, triggering a massive backlash that propelled Republicans to control of the House the following year. On the Senate side, going into Tuesday’s elections, 24 senators who voted for Obamacare were already out or not going be part of the new Senate being sworn in on January…
….As of this writing, 16 Senators who voted for Obamacare either failed to win reelection or declined to run for reelection and had their seats turned over to Republicans. That number is likely to grow once the results are in from the Senate runoff in Louisiana, which Mary Landrieu is expected to lose.
And, today Obamacare is more unpopular than ever.
