He will be reelected, because these aren’t actually his constituents, they are almost all people from outside his district. The left thinks that if they adopt the tactics of the Tea Party, then they will succeed, but it was the Tea Party that adopted the tactics of the left.

As far as death panels, what name would you prefer? It’s a panel of people convened for the specific purpose of determining what, if any, treatment a patient shall receive, paying for expensive, life saving procedures or providing pain therapy while the condition runs it’s course. It’s semantics, these panels do indeed decide if a patient lives or dies. People who could be saved with expensive intervention will not be if the panel decides not to provide it for whatever reason.
Even the left’s own rock star economist Paul Krugman acknowledged this in a 2013 speech at the 6th street synagogue in Washington, D.C. “We’re going to need more revenue, we’re going to need, and probably in the end, surely in the end it will require some sort of middle class taxes as well… We’re going to have to make decisions about health care, not pay for health care that has no demonstrated medical benefits. So you know the snarky version I use, which is, I shouldn’t even say because it will get me in trouble, is death panels and sales taxes is how we do this.”
