ObamaCare, aka ACA, Continuing To Lose Support...

Washington (CNN) - The Affordable Care Act, which is the signature domestic achievement for President Barack Obama, was passed along party lines in 2010, when Democrats controlled both houses of Congress. Since that passage, Republicans have fought to either repeal, defund, or severely restrict the law. A push by congressional conservatives to defund the law was the catalyst for October's 16-day long partial federal government shutdown, the first in nearly two decades.

As Americans began to better understand the flaws in the ACA and struggle through perhaps the most customer unfriendly sign up experience in human history, as well as more and more people now realizing the Affordable Care Act is really the Unaffordable Care Act for many, support for ObamaCare continues its descent.

CNN, a slightly left leaning cable news network has just released a nationwide CNN/ORC International poll indicating ObamaCare is decidedly more in disfavor than in favor with the American people. Where the rubber meets the road ObamaCare has just hit its record low. More below the fold.

  1. There's a slight whiff of bailout (of the insurance companies) in the air these days. Can you smell it up there (in MA), Les?

  2. Me too. And I'd suspect that this will follow the usual situation we've had for years now: Democrats will sell the bailouts with Chicken Little logic, and Republicans will oppose.

  3. You're probably right, dmarks, just as long as their names aren't George Bush, Hank Paulson, and Ben Bernanke.

    1. Exactly. And it is the Tea Partiers who have the right idea on this, whatever else their flaws. I went to two of their rallies and saw no racist Obama signs, but many against bailouts and similar policies.
