Yes, in this case it's:
I am predicting that 2014 is going to be a banner year for conservatives. Why? In a word, Obamacare

THAT'S the subject of the paragraph and it makes it VERY clear that it is the subject. I know that this is HARD for you to understand, but please try.


Now then, would you care to comment on the effect that the ACA will have on the overall election for Democrats or do you plan on continuing to try to get people talking about gerrymandering??

The problem is that what they wanted and what they got were NOT the same thing. The problem is that this will keep a lot of Dems. home for the election. The problem is that this will swing a lot of on the fence voters away from the Dems., while at the same time it will not gain them any voters. Anyone who will vote for the Dems. based on the ACA benefits they are receiving are people who would have voted for the Dems. any way. LOTS of negatives for the Dems. virtually NO positives.

While those with a majority are usually the laziest at midterms I think that is the only factor here. Won't be about ObamaCare no matter how it's spun from the Kotch bros

If you really believe that the upcoming election won't be influenced by the ACA, then you are too dumb for words. Anyone with any intelligence whatsoever on BOTH sides recognize this. It's why so many Dems. are trying to minimize their involvement with it. This election will be a strong referendum on the ACA, with the Dems. voting with their butts by not showing up and the Reps. voting with their feet by making sure that they show up. Turnout for Dems. will substantially lower than expected and turnout from Reps. will be substantially higher than expected.
