His side may have lost the Obamacare defunding battle, but Republican Sen. Marco Rubio predicts a public revolt early next year.
By February or April, "the realities of this law are going to begin to impact people," Rubio, R-FL, told Fox News Channel's "Hannity"
after the Wednesday night vote approving a bill ending the government shutdown and temporarily raising the federal debt ceiling.
Millions of people will begin realizing they are not getting free health insurance, Rubio said. Once they realize they are losing the health insurance they liked or losing their doctor, they will be angry.

"There is going to be an all-out revolt in this country over that," he told host Sean Hannity. "And that is, I think, the moment to absolutely act and say, we're going to get rid of this law. And then look for opportunities in the future to replace it with better ideas that address our significant health insurance problem."
