Most Republicans in 2010 ran on a platform with two planks. 1) Repealing or blocking "Obamacare" and 2) Job creation, which they often tied to the health care law.
A big piece of the campaign against Obamacare was the charge that it would either end Medicare or severely reduce benefits.
Most campaigns were targeted toward seniors or soon-to-be seniors. That's who votes in mid-terms.
