    The question is flawed, since Obamacare will succeed.

    And after it does, and we've seen the proof, it means single-payer should be next.

    is the start of sign up only. Nothing changes. Jan 1, 2014 is the day the signed up people get coverage, and Obamacare
    is finally in effect.

    Re: Who will Democrats blame for the failure of Obamacare?

    I'm curious as to what "failure" is in this context. The goal of the law is to get more people covered. It is certainly going to achieve that. The doom and gloom naysayers claim that it will bankrupt the nation or some such, but neglect to say how. We'll all be unemployed because business owners are apparently only barely scraping by and will all have to close their doors if they have to pay a little more for health insurance, but it's vitally important that we keep making them shoulder this cost and not decouple insurance from employment.

    The whole argument stops making sense pretty quickly. But it is extremely conservative. Change bad!! Even obviously good changes.

    I'm pretty sure The dems know that it will fail. Harry Reid admitted that the aca wouldn't be able to fully succeed. He called it a step toward the real goal which is single payer. So to answer they will blame Republicans for not spending enough and they will propose a single payer system as the remedy for this "outrageous republican position".

    what is bad is that it is more income redistribution and will create more dependency

    It is a noble goal to want more people covered if those people want to be covered, However most of the new coverage will be to young healthy people who didn't want to purchase it in the first place by choice. Couple that with those who are loosing employer coverage and reduced hours and its really not going to make a big enough difference to the truly needy to justify the size and scope of the program .

    So. As this disaster of a behemoth of a bill continues to flail and fail, who are the Democrats going to blame? How far down the rabbit hole are they willing to go, ears plugged, eyes closed?
    Right, so, anybody keeping track? So far I'm seeing mostly Big Evil Contracting Company and Republicans.
