Washington Examiner columnist Byron York doesn’t see how the Democrats can avoid some heavy negative effects from Obamacare heading into next year’s election:

Democrats are sure to ratchet up the blame on insurance companies, congressional Republicans and maybe even George W. Bush, but will their spin be enough? Not according to York, who says Dems will pay a political price for Obamacare next year as people realize health care costs more when it’s “affordable” than it did when it was too expensive (to paraphrase P.J. O’Rourke).

Let the spin get even more desperate as the 2014 election draws closer.
