Barack Obama, our next President

"Polls: Obamacare increasing in popularity, GOP election future in big trouble

October 18, 2013

With the government now reopen for business, the after effects of the shutdown are taking its toll, especially on the Republican party.

The big demand by Republicans, especially their Tea Party caucus, was a full repeal of Obamacare or defunding the law so it could not be implemented. The government shutdown on October 1st, the first day the health care exchanges were open for the public. Despite rhetoric from right-wing news sources and Tea Party backed congressional members, such as Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), multiple polls show that in the aftermath of the government shutdown, Republicans are seeing their approval ratings drop while the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare," is becoming more popular.

According to a recent CNBC poll, 44 percent of Americans oppose defunding "Obamacare," compared to 38 percent who want to see the new health care law defunded. When asked if they supported defunding the law if it was tied to a government shutdown, an overwhelming 59 percent were opposed. A new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll showed that the approval for the Affordable Care Act increased seven points, from 31 percent to 38 percent since the government shutdown following Tea Party demands. While the number is still low, it shows Americans are starting to finally warm up to the idea of "Obamacare." A recent Gallup poll even showed that two-thirds of uninsured Americans were planning to sign up for health insurance through the exchange program created by the Affordable Care Act.

With Republican approval ratings at historic lows, the GOP will need to change their tune if they want to repeat the success of the 2010 midterms in 2014. The majority of the American people put the blame for the government shutdown at the doorstep of congressional Republicans, which prompted them to fold on their demands and cave to an uncompromising President Obama. The president has often moved to the center to meet Republicans, moving away from his base for the good of the country. As the president has made his move to the right, Republicans continue to move away from him following constant pressure from the Tea Party...."

"Let's be clear: there are no winners here," Obama said in remarks to the press the morning after he signed the legislation that reopened the government.

Under his guise of compromise, the sequester cuts essentially became the standing norm for government spending. But this time he came to the table having learned something. He realized every time he gave up ground to the GOP they would only demand more. So he stopped. Every time the GOP came up with plan that included something they wanted, Obama was right there promising a veto. And lo and behold, it worked...."

You have your facts mixed up. The Affordable Care Act benefits 15% of the population. The 2% is the percentage of the population represented by the Tea Party.
the only thing worse than the websites are the insurance policies sold under ObamaKKKare...when people find out the details, they will revolt....

Obama will call for major changes in the program before the next election...higher taxes, lower premiums, lower deductibles, lower copays...

I have just felt the first touch of the Affordable Health Care Act. I was asked today for my DOD #. The funny part was I did not know I had one and to my sha-grin I have one.(24 years did not know it) This is the worst that will happen to me I can live with this.
How many of you have had your insurance cancelled or raised so far?
Have any of you gone through one of the exchanges yet?
You are a prime person for identity theft. Letís make a position and just above minimum wage to people with barely a high school education. They will get you name, SSN, Date of Birth and Credit Card # or banking information.
It makes you wonder if the government wants people to be victims of identity theft. But hay most of the people using the exchanges are on the far left. Be careful what you wish for-for you might get it!

The only reason people might wince at the details is because they have never had insurance before and were expecting a freebie. Co-pays and deductibles are in line with off network insurance. As soon as they realize that, they will sign up. After all, most of these people are getting subsidies to offset the high premiums. That will be a non issue.
