“The Oba­macare Dozen” — Those Demo­cratic se­na­tors up for re-elec­tion, who cast a de­ci­sive vote for Oba­macare and are “start­ing to panic” that health care re­form will com­pro­mise their chances in the 2014 midterms.

“The Oba­macare Dozen are re­ceiv­ing an over­due ed­u­ca­tion in the dam­ag­ing con­se­quences of the bill they sup­ported, all of which were pre­dicted by crit­ics in 2010. Any one of th­ese se­na­tors could have pre­vented the cur­rent mad­ness by vot­ing no,” re­ports a Wall Street Jour­nal ed­i­to­rial.

And the Dirty Dozen? They are: Sens. Mark Begich of Alaska, Richard J. Durbin of Illi­nois, Al Franken of Min­nesota, Kay R. Ha­gan of North Carolina, Mary L. Lan­drieu of Louisiana, Jeff Merkley of Oregon, Mark L. Pryor of Arkansas, Jack Reed of Rhode Is­land, Jeanne Sha­heen of New Hamp­shire, Mark Udall of Colorado, Tom Udall of New Mex­ico and Mark R. Warner of Vir­ginia.
