The standard line has been, even if the Republicans take both houses in 2014, the President would veto any repeal of Obamacare. But what if a coalition of Republicans and vulnerable Democrats pull together in the Senate to reach 2/3. A filibuster would not be an option here. Reaching 2/3 is probably easier in the House.
It took 60 votes in the Senate to pass Obamacare. Perhaps 67 votes to repeal it?
The midterms tend to be a bloodbath for the incumbent party, but if somewhere between 60 and 100 million Americans receive cancellation notices next fall, the Democrats could be hobbled. There just could be a mandate to repeal Obamacare, and overturn the President’s veto.
