This week, CNN divulged that Senate Democrats voted against a Republican bill that would’ve allowed both individuals and businesses to keep their health insurance plans after Obamacare was implemented.


The bill, sponsored by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) was put forth in 2010 during the height of the legislative debate on the Affordable Care Act and would have grandfathered insurance plans that have now been canceled.


The senator noted Americans’ frustration with Pres. Obama’s lies about the new healthcare law. “According to the White House’s own economic impact analysis, as many as 69 percent of businesses will lose their grandfathered status by 2013 and be forced to buy government-approved plans,” Grassley stated.


Democrats voted strict party line against the bill, which has many liberals now worrying about their re-election in Nov. 2014. Strategists speculate that this vote could make re-election for Sens. Pryor, Landrieu, Begich and Hagan very difficult.
