While negative views on the law continue to outpace positive ones this month, a majority of the public says they disapprove of cutting off funding as a way to stop the law’s implementation. The most commonly chosen reason for opposition to defunding the ACA is that “using the budget process to stop a law is not the way our government should work,” followed by a belief that “without funding the law will be crippled and won’t work as planned,” and feeling that the law will be “a good thing for the country.”
Kaiser Health Tracking Poll: August 2013
http://kff.org/health-reform/poll-finding/kai...
As outreach efforts for enrollment in the health insurance marketplaces created by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) increase over the summer, the August Kaiser Health Tracking Poll finds that the public’s most trusted sources of information on the law are not necessarily the ones people are most likely to be hearing from. The public is most likely to say they trust health care professionals like doctors, nurses, and pharmacists, as well as federal and state health agencies when it comes to information about the law. Young adults, a key target of outreach efforts, are particularly likely to say they trust official sources of information like state and federal agencies. By contrast, the most common places where people say they’ve actually heard about the law are from the news media, family and friends. A third of the public now says they’ve heard “a lot” or “some” about the health insurance marketplace in their state, up from 22 percent in June. Despite saying they’ve heard about the law from various sources, confusion remains, with more than four in ten saying the law has been repealed or overturned, or being unsure whether it remains the law of the land. And about half say they don’t understand how the law will impact their own families. While negative views on the law continue to outpace positive ones this month, a majority of the public says they disapprove of cutting off funding as a way to stop the law’s implementation.

Let me understand correctly; you are quoting a poll reflecting each poll number below 50%??

The highest percentage being 44%??

And the poll shows no majority (more than 50%) in any of the catagories.
And the poll emphasizes young people and democrats who vote based on their feelings??

Only in the minds of a limited libroid can these ideas be expressed.

<quoted text>While you talk a lot with other peopleÂ’s words, you fail completely to explain in simple words how the ACA law came about.
The Obama law, ACA, originated in the Senate, using the Commerce Clause as the reasoning to pass the law. The House took it up under the same conditions. All the crap about reconciliation and who did what, is based on the false premise of a law passed under the Commerce Clause.

It took the Supremes to make the law valid, as a tax I might add. Many people remember asking,“What did the Obamanites have on Roberts to blackmail him into finally agreeing with the four miscreant socialists Judges.“

The crux of the Supreme Court ruling on the ACAÂ….

““In the ruling, the court decided the most controversial provision -- an individual mandate requiring people to have health insurance -- is valid as a tax, even though it is impermissible under the Constitution's commerce clause.(The court rejected the arguments of the Obama Administration using the Commerce Clause. The Court ruled it a tax.)

"It is reasonable to construe what Congress has done as increasing taxes on those who have a certain amount of income, but choose to go without health insurance," Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the majority opinion. "Such legislation is within Congress's power to tax."

He later added: "The federal government does not have the power to order people to buy health insurance.... The federal government does have the power to impose a tax on those without health insurance."”

This is similar to Cigarette Taxes. If you do NOT want to pay the tax, you can refuse to use the product. While the IRS can apply a tax penalty on persons for not getting the ACA insurance, the IRS has no legal authority to compel the penalty to be paid and no way to file any liens, the IRS Tiger is toothless.

Getting a nasty letter from the IRS is tantamount to screaming wolf, when no wolf exists, only a defanged IRS.

So the Country has a tax mandated by the Supreme Court, but not collectible if folks so choose to ignore. The Constitutional requirement that the House pass tax laws has been over-ruled by 5, in robes of black.
What a strange a wondrous concept - requiring people buying insurance to pay their own medical bills.

Who could possible be I favor of allowing freeloading deadbeat parasites to continue to steal the money of hard-working Americans who actually pay taxes and pay for medical care ?

Dummy one says::
It’s a requirement, when the Supremes say it’s a choice. Which do I believe?? The Supremes of course, since they are the ones who usurped the Constitutional Authority of the House to set the Budget.
Many will choose not to buy the insurance and the FEDs can’t do a dam thing about it.

And since the House has the authority to pass a budget, they also have the power to either fund or not fund the ACA. Time will tell whether or not the rinos will allow the budget to include funding a law perverted by the 5 socialists black robes.

Reconciliation is false. Big deal, it doesn’t matter now. The law that was passed was ruled not valid under the pretenses put forward by the perverted socialist’s democrats; only by the pressure of one sorry man in a black robe has this debacle reached the point where we are now. The law is not what was passed by the Senate or the House, the law is what the Supremes say it is.

Will the House have the cojones to affirm their righteous duty to form a budget??? Or will they cave in to underhanded socialists democratic tricks, as some rinos have in the past. Only time will tell.

Either way, it doesn’t make a difference as folks can choose or NOT to choose, to participate in the ACA.

Where the demos have screwed up big time is in not making it mandatory. A sorry Bill with no redeeming value at all. A sorry excuse of legislative loopholes that benefits only a few at the expense of the many.
Medicaid will lose over approx. 8-15 million under the new qualifying rules of the ACA.

How about answering the following question. What does it tell you about Obamacare knowing that Congress demanded that they and their staffs be exempted? Of course, Obama will NEVER have to worry about having to deal with his crappy law. Seriously, what do you think about that?

Just Sayin' stated that the Affordable Care Act was passed using reconciliation, and you agreed stating that it was ramrodded upon the public by a dictator.
The facts of the situation showed you both to be wrong.
The ACA was passed without the use of reconciliation, and Republicans have employed dictatorial ramrodding 17 out of 22 times at bat.
Just admit that your view is warped by your ideology and we can declare progress with your therapy.
How many Republicans voted, "yes" for Obamacare?

I have boatloads of Canadian friends who fled their home country for 2 reasons. They were tired of hibernating 8 months of every year and for lack of quality healhcare. I'm happy to report, 3 recently pledged & became legalized citizens of America. Wow! What a party! So do some research with real people who have lived in Canada their whole lives & watched mama & papa wait months & months for knee or hip replacements. You havent a clue, dear. It's so very evident. Screw the studies, get out, meet amd greet some happy Canadians turned Americans.
Truckloads of Canadians move here to the south for the weather in the winter. Most go home for healthcare, fact! Our healthcare is not rated in the top 20 in the world, another fact. Make up all the stuff you want, makes nothing any better. But grief seems to make conservative's happy.

Obamacare provides for several specific waivers from the mandate that individuals purchase insurance. The individual mandate will not apply to you, or you can get a waiver, if you:

Are a religious objector;
Are a member of a “Health care sharing ministry;”
Are an illegal alien;
Are in jail;
Are poor;
Are a member of an Indian tribe; or
Are suffering a “hardship.

http://heartland.org/policy-documents/six-typ...

Government employees will not be exempted exactly, they will get special reimbursements that you and I won't get.
Some large employers and labor unions will receive outright waivers.
So when the dems tell you that nobody is exempt, they aren't telling the whole truth. Much like the delays in implementation, the full consequence of this "law" won't be known until after the next major election. Some coincidence.
This is about politics and power, always was.
