How Obamacare Can Help Democrats in 2014

"The GOP has made opposition to Obamacare a central pillar of its 2014 campaign strategy. And even though the health care law has begun to turn around, that may not be such a bad idea given lingering public skepticism over the law," The Week reports.

"However, there is one crucial piece of Obamacare that may well become a big winner for Democrats by the end of the year: The dramatic expansion of Medicaid. Unlike the overall law, the expansion of Medicaid is actually quite popular with voters of all political stripes."

Greg Sargent notes how red state Democrats are handling the law: "They are not embracing Obamcare. But they oppose repeal, and they are standing behind the general goal of expanding coverage to those who can't afford it."
