The latest extension of the deadline for individuals to sign up for health insurance through Obamacare has Grover Norquist eyeing the 2014 Senate races eagerly.

Obama's repeated extensions of the Affordable Care Act deadline amount to the president disregarding laws passed by Congress, Norquist told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV, but Congress is powerless to do anything about it.

"It’s a little bit like asking why the Ukrainians don't do something about Crimea. You know, because they can't,"  said Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform.

Story continues below video.

Norquist said that congressmen don't have legal standing to sue the president over laws that they passed. Since that isn't an option, impeachment could be on the table — but that would require Republicans to make big gains in the Senate in November elections.

"We should recognize that impeachment of judges and presidents was not just for high crimes, but for violating rule of law, we consider that to be at least a misdemeanor to not enforce the law," Norquist said.

Republicans need a net gain of six seats to capture control of the Senate, and Norquist said there are at least seven that look like strong possibilities.

West Virginia, Montana, and South Dakota all seem likely to swing toward Republicans, Norquist said. North Carolina, Arkansas, Alaska, and Louisiana all have Democrats who could be weak because of their support of Obamacare, while Colorado, Michigan, and Iowa could be in play, too, he said.

The continued stumbles of Obamacare will only help Republicans in their electoral battles.

"They put together a lousy website, then they said they didn't, then they said they fixed [it], now they admit that it's cutting out 63-year-old women – this thing is a mess and [has] got to be shut down," Norquist said.
