    Published: Mon, Nov 17, 2014

    These are not good days for Obamacare. The law remains as unpopular as ever in polls, and voters just removed four more incumbent senators who voted for it in 2009. (A fifth removal is likely next month.) In addition, Obamacare is entering its second year with a new round of insurance...
