With the 2014 midterm elections just a year away, nervous Democrats have begun distancing themselves from what Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius now calls the Obamacare "debacle."
"Our guys are frustrated by Obama's unforced errors," a Senate Democrat aide told Reuters on Wednesday. "How could the president not be ready for the rollout?"
Rep. Rick Nolan (D-MN) expressed frustration last week with the Obama Administration's failed rollout of Obama's signature legislative achievement.
"Some of us, myself included, are somewhat resentful [and] upset about the apparent incompetency in designing and rolling this thing out," said Nolan. "Who was it that said we are going to go ahead knowing it doesn't work? I would fire that person."

Most of the people that are looking for healthcare in the government exchanges are not qualifying either.
They are distancing themselves/criticising the flawed roll out. That's very different from distancing themselves from Obamacare. The title of the article is nothing more than link bait.edit on 31-10-2013 by Kaploink because: (no reason given)

"I don't know," said Sebelius. "I will find out what testing they're doing."
Twenty-seven Republican senators voted with Democrats on Oct. 16 to lift the debt ceiling and avert a catastrophic default. And each one of those 27 senators voted Tuesday to "disapprove" of their own votes.
The vote Tuesday was a symbolic "resolution to disapprove" of the debt limit hike. It was mandated by the deal thanks to a last-minute provision inserted by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). The motion failed 45-54 because all Democrats opposed it.
