Obamacare Has Gotten More Popular Since The GOP Shut Down The Government To Defund It

A faction of Tea Party Republicans led by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) essentially forced a government shutdown to pressure Democrats to delay or defund the health reform law. But that dramatic move hasn’t done anything to convince Americans that Obamacare is a policy they should oppose. According to a new poll, Obamacare is actually gaining in popularity at the same time as the Republican Party has taken extreme measures to take a stand against it.

A new NBC-Wall Street Journal poll finds that 38 percent of Americans say Obamacare is a good idea, which represents a 7-point jump from last month. It’s the third-highest popularity rating for Obamacare — which typically doesn’t poll well as a whole, even though Americans tend to support its individual provisions — since the health law was first enacted.

The poll also finds that 50 percent of voters don’t want to eliminate funding for the health reform law, and the vast majority are opposed to tying Obamacare to the ongoing negotiations over the government shutdown. Just 23 percent of Americans say they want to continue the current shutdown to sabotage the health law.

The government shutdown ultimately didn’t do anything to stop the major provisions of the health law from taking effect, and actually ended up coinciding with the open enrollment period for Obamacare’s new insurance marketplaces. Although the sites for the marketplaces have had some ongoing technological glitches, they’ve also received a considerable amount of interest during their first two weeks. A recent poll found that seven percent of Americans say that someone in their household has already tried to sign up for health insurance under Obamacare, which could represent up to 20 million people. That personal experience with the law could be influencing Americans’ attitudes about it.

The new findings from the NBC-Wall Street Journal poll track with surveys that were conducted right before the government shut down at the beginning of this month. In September, one poll found that just seven percent of Republican voters favored delaying or defunding Obamacare as the best strategy for moving forward with the health law.

Another poll released last month found that even the Americans who oppose the health law don’t actually want to sabotage it; instead, most voters are interested in finding ways to make it work.

And as the shutdown has dragged on, there have been some signs that mainstream GOPers are breaking from the Tea Party’s far-right strategy to take the government hostage over Obamacare.

Some Republican lawmakers have been distancing themselves from the House GOP’s demands, pointing out that “defunding Obamacare did not work” and it’s time for a more realistic strategy. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) recently expressed frustration with congressional Republicans for being so focused on defunding Obamacare, noting that her state needs the funding appropriated under the health law to expand Medicaid. And across the country, veteran Republicans are becoming fed up with the shutdown, accusing the Tea Party of being too intransigent and creating a “distraction” with the fight over Obamacare.

Update
On MSNBC on Friday afternoon, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) responded to the news that the health reform law is gaining popularity by suggesting that “no one has done more to strengthen O

http://thinkprogress.org/health/2013/10/11/27...

The GOP plan to open the gov't continues to add Obamacare cuts. They continue to FAIL. They need to present a plan without the ACA included if they REALLY want to end the shutdown.

Tinfoil Hat Alert! Two Idiotic Memes The Right Actually Believes Are Really Happening

Two new Obamas abuse of power! memes are racing through the world of digitally generated right wing outrage. One, that exposes the presidents blatant abuse of power by air-lifting a tarp over Mt. Rushmore. The other, the presidents blatant abuse of power by closing the ocean! Cover a mountain with a sheet and close the ocean? Sounds completely insane, doesnt it? Not if youre a conservative.

BLATANT ABUSE OF POWER #1
A depiction of military choppers draping a tarp over the faces of those carved into Mt. Rushmore. The caption sometimes seen accompanying the photo reads,Obama ordered this. Sure he did. This couldnt possibly be just another extremist attempt to take an easily foreseeable consequences of the government shutdown and blow them out of proportion. But hey, why use reason at all right? The sites denouncing Obamas abuse of power using this or a variation of this picture have received hundreds of thousands of page views and shares. The problem is that people (conservatives) think the picture is real. They actually think Obama put a drape over the monument.

The truth of the matter is there is no abuse of power here. And only an idiot would think that picture is real. The truth is, because of the shutdown, all areas within the federal lands are closed off. That includes the federally owned and maintained viewing areas. Many of which are on the roadways that run through federal property. You can drive through, you just cant stop and take pictures. Want to get a snapshot? Tell the GOP to reopen the government. Who do you think cleans and polices those viewing areas? The National Monument Fairy?

BLATANT ABUSE OF POWER #2
This is one of the finest examples of the lack of journalistic due diligence Ive seen in quite some time. Mr. Mike Flynn, fact checking stalwart of Breitbart.com , informed us about President Obamas most unbelievable abuse of power. As part of Obamas nefarious to inflict the most amount of pain possible, hesshut down the ocean!

Nothing extreme about that headline is there? Unless of course you consider that Florida Bay is a federally owned and protected area off the southern tip of Florida and has the same application of rules to it as say, a South Dakota monument carved into a mountainside. This news article has received hundreds of thousands of views. There are over 10k comments. People are pissed. And for what? For what some propagandist hack throws a toddlers tantrum over? This is what Mr. Flynn had to about President Obamas alleged abuse of power:

The Park Service will also have rangers on duty to police the ban of access to an ocean. The government will probably use more personnel and spend more resources to attempt to close the ocean, than it would in its normal course of business.

Florida Bay is the ocean. How, pray tell, do you close 1,100 square miles of ocean? Why would one even need to do so?
Its amazing to me how blown out of proportion this story is.

Florida Bay is a relatively small area when you consider the scope of coverage to Floridas coastal waterways. A literal speck on the map when looking at the coastal areas of the country. The questions proposed are ludicrous. How do you close 1,1oo sq. mi. of ocean? Why do we need to do so? Lets gain some perspective of the area Mr. Flynn speaks about.

And suddenly, Obamas abuse of power seems like an incredibly stupid claim by easily frightened conservatives.

What gets glossed over is that you can still drive/sail/paddle your boat through the area, you just cant stop to fish or scuba dive and similar activities. Why? Because if something goes wrong, theres no one coming to help you. If someone decides to dump raw sewage in the water theres no one there to stop them. The federal government is shut down, remember?

As with Mount Rushmore, there is no presidential abuse of power here. Florida Bay was closed during the shutdowns of both presidents Bush and Clinton. Its not like this is a new and unique occurrence.

Be careful what you wish for

Conservatives were super excited to shut down the government. Now theyre screaming about the reality of what they wanted. This what happens in the real world when you make such stupid choices. Shouting abuse of power! and failing to take responsibility for your choices doesnt lend credence to your argument. Quite the opposite. How is it that Republican leadership doesnt see that?

A big problem with the way this country operates and its use of technology is that people spend more time sensationalizing and distorting an issue then they do actually deciphering and contributing to the solution of it. Centrist, moderate views allow for difference of opinion and the debates and compromises that come with them. Taking things to an extreme only polarizes and infuriates all involved. And when it comes to the shutdown, we are ALL involved. So please, Mr. Republican-at-large, do us all a favor, knock off the ridiculousness of your bogus claims and distortions and sit down at the table. We have work to do. Stop preying on the fears and lack of education of the common low-information citizen. Put away childish things, treat serious issues seriously and fund the government for the next fiscal year all at once with a clean continuing resolution (CR).

GOP Voters, Business Interests, And Governors Are Abandoning Congressional Republicans

As the government shutdown enters its eleventh day and the nation races towards a possible default, a growing number of Republican lawmakers, leaders, and voters are publicly blaming Congressional Republicans for the budget impasse. Though they fault President Obama for failing to negotiate with Congress, as the public mood sours, some within the GOP are hurriedly distancing themselves from the mess in Washington.

Its time for someone to act like a grown-up in this process, former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu (R) told the Associated Press. Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) agreed, remarking on Monday that This is not how we should operate. It shouldnt be about people fighting and yelling.The bottom line is we need that money in our economy to save rural hospitals and jobs in the rural areas, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) told the Arizona Daily Star on Thursday, criticizing the GOPe effort to defund the Affordable Care Act.

The criticism comes as an Associated Press-GfK poll released Wednesday showed that three-quarters of Republicans nationally said their party in Congress deserves a moderate degree or most of the blame for the shutdown and a NBC/Wall Street Journal survey reported that just 24 percent of Americans now have a favorable view of Republicans the lowest figure in the polls history. Seventy percent of Americans say Republicans are putting politics ahead of the national interest and have an increasingly dim view of Tea Party backed Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT), who orchestrated the current impasse.

In yet another sign of trouble for the GOP, business interests are also showing signs of discontent, signaling a possible rift with Republicans ahead of the 2014 mid-term elections.
Iowa Republicans are recruiting a pro-business Republican to challenge six-term conservative Rep. Steve King (R), a leader in the push to defund the health care law, the Associated Press reports and party establishment leaders in Michigan are threatening to recruit and fund challengers to Rep. Justin Amash (R) and other Tea Party aligned candidates.

Meanwhile, Republican governors some of whom questioned the wisdom of shutting down the government over Obamacare in the first place are scrambling to deal with sudden shortage of federal dollars in their states.

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R)has ordered the state pay 244 federally-reimbursed employees who support the National Guard and has committed to funding federal programs like SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) and WIC (Women, Infants and Children) through the end of October. Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) has declared a state of civil emergency and warned that our federally funded state employees may have to be laid off.

A report released earlier this week found that the shutdown is disproportionately affecting Republican-leaning states like Virginia, Alaska, and Alabama, which have higher concentrations of federal employees and federal contracts.

Cognitive Dissonance and the Republican Denial of Reality

Theres not a day that goes by where I dont walk away from reading some of the comments I get on Forward Progressives or Right Off A Cliff and wonder to myself,What must reality be like on whatever planet Republicans seem to live on?
Because it damn sure isnt the same planet, or in the same reality, where I live.

These are the people who claim to be the party for fiscal responsibility, yet havent had a president from their own party balance the budget since President Eisenhower who served over a half-century ago. Hell, Ronald Reagan (the man many of them champion as the epitome of conservatism) drastically grew our deficits and our national debt during his time in the White House.
Tell me again how thats being fiscally responsible? I still dont get that.

These are also the people who call themselves Christians while condemning the poor, vilifying the needy then supporting policies that perpetuate greed and selfishness. All things which are direct contradictions to the values for which Jesus Christ lived and ultimately died for. Yet millions of these people still continue to believe themselves to be Christians basically because they oppose abortion, same-sex marriage and attend church frequently. Two things which Jesus Christ never even spoke about, and church being something he did warn people to be wary of as often times people speak of God to benefit their own selfish ambitions.

And dont even get me started on their stance as the party for small government. They love government. They constantly support big government when it benefits something they support or oppose. They only really oppose government when it goes against their ideological beliefs.

Now we have this government shutdown, where somewhere in the delusional minds of Republicans they believe theyve been given some kind of mandate that allows them to shut down our government in a pointless attempt to stop Obamacare.

Never mind the fact that President Obama was overwhelmingly re-elected or that Democrats were given more seats in both the House and the Senate somehow, Republicans think the American people have spoken and have given them a mandate.
Well, the American people did speak. They re-elected the man who signed the health care bill into law and gave more seats back to the party which supports the law.

Then as John Boehner sits there, refusing to let the House vote on a clean version of the Senates resolution which would reopen the government (hes simply saying there arent enough votesthough refuses to prove it) they still blame the shutdown on President Obama and Democrats.

Yet they really cant answer how its their fault if Boehner wont let the House vote.

But none of this really matters to Republicans, and theres an easy answer as to why. See, most of them suffer from whats known as cognitive dissonance. To put it simply, cognitive dissonance is the brains inability to handle two conflicting realities, so it creates an alternate one which often defies actual reality.

The first time I heard this term was in reference to abusive relationships and how individuals somehow convince themselves that abuse equates to love. While to an outsider the abusive behavior is a complete contradiction to love, the person being abused creates some alternative form of reality in their minds where they deserve the abuse. They feel its justified. They love the person abusing them, want to believe that they love them back, but the abuse completely contradicts these feelings. Therefore, their mind simply creates some delusional reality where abuse and love seemingly go together.

Thats how I view most Republicans. What they want to be real doesnt correspond to what is real, therefore instead of facing the stark reality that their whole political ideology is wrong, theyve simply concocted some alternate form of reality where facts, science and history dont matter.

Theyll scream at the top of their lungs that Obama is the worst president in history!
yet cant tell you any factual reasons why. Sure, they can spout off a bunch of right-wing talking points taken directly from Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but they cant actually recite much of anything factual.

Many will stare you straight in the face and tell you that President Obama made the economy worse, while ignoring the fact weve created around 7 million jobs in the last 3 1/2 years.

Republicans will blast President Obama for his spending, while ignoring the fact that year to year deficits have been reduced by their largest margins since WWII.

Theyll talk about how Obamacare is a failure, yet cant list 5 factual statements about the health care law.

Patriotism is a word they often use, just before they talk of secession whenever they dont get their way.

Theyre simply suffering from a severe case of cognitive dissonance. The reality they wished existed doesnt, therefore theyve simply created an alternate reality where their rhetoric makes sense.

Where:
Youre fiscally conservativewhile running up giant deficits.

Youre for small governmentexcept all the times when you want government to support your side of the argument.

Youre a patriotwhile talking of secession and revolution whenever the Constitution doesnt support your ideology.

Youre for the Constitutionyet that same Constitution rarely supports your policies.
Youre against the government shutdowneven though many members of your party had been calling for one.
Youre a Christianwhile supporting policies which contradict the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Youre for the middle classby supporting policies which screw them over for the benefit of the rich.
Youre against government programswhile living off government programs.

Youre against people on welfarewhile you live in a state that takes in more federal dollars than it pays out.

The list could honestly go on and on. The absolute hypocrisy within the Republican party is rampant and seemingly endless.

And the simple explanation is that many of then suffer from cognitive dissonance. What they want to be real isnt, therefore the only way their brains can handle such conflicting events is by creating a version of reality that doesnt make sense or exist.

Which is exactly what many of them have done.

Jon Stewart Slams Republicans, Says What a lot of Americans Have Been Saying for Years

I always joke how its kind of sad that some of the best news I get comes from Comedy Central, but that often seems to be the case. I guess people like Jon Stewart do have a distinct advantage over traditional journalists in that he can often say whatever he wants.

Well, he took to the airwaves to take a direct shot at something myself, and many other Americans, have been saying since Republicans began attacking Obamacare.

What the hell is your alternative?

Stewart went directly at this blind Republican hatred of Obamacare by pointing out the fact that while Republicans are quick to bash the health care law, they offer absolutely no alternatives. They just sit there whining and complaining about the law, doing everything they can to obstruct it, but if you ask any of them what their alternative is to fix our health care systemI doubt youll get any answers.

He also went on to remind people of the asinine comment made by Mitt Romney during last years presidential campaign when the former GOP presidential candidate said that we already had health care for poor people its called the emergency room.

Stewarts exact words were:

If you have a better program, Republicans, lets fucking hear it! But dont make your plan,What do we need food stamps for when we already have dine and dash?

Very eloquently put, if I do say so myself.

But hes absolutely right. Before the Affordable Care Act, the emergency room was seen by millions as their health care plan. Hospitals all across the country budgeted for millions of people they knew theyd provide treatment for, yet never receive any form of payment from. And do you think they simply absorbed these costs? Of course not. Those expenses were then passed on to people who did pay through higher health care premiums and cost of treatments.

So when someone like Romney said that the ER was an option for poor people, he put his ignorance on full display as to just how expensive emergency room visits are and just how much impact millions of people using them as their sole means of health care has on those who end up footing the bill.

And while you might not like the Affordable Care Act, it was clear before it was signed into law that something needed to be done about a health care system that desperately needed some sort of positive makeover.

So here we are with Obamacare rolling out to millions and Republicans still bitching and moaning about how horrible the law is. Yet, over 3 1/2 years after it was signed into law by President Obama, Republicans still have no alternative if the law were to actually be repealed.

Its just more of the same right-wing rhetoric about how terrible the law is, with no plan to replace it.

But then again, isnt that what the Republican party is all about? No real plans for anything, just a whole lot of rhetoric. I mean honestly, this is what their entire economic ideology essentially consists of:

&#9726;Cut taxes for the rich
&#9726;Cut spending for the poor

Thats basically it. Neither of which are really plans as much as theyre really just bumper stickers and campaign slogans. Theyre failed theories that make for great talking pointsand thats about it.

And with health care theyre no different. They can talk until theyre blue in the face about the evils of Obamacare(most of what they say being blatant lies, by the way), but youll find very few Republicans that actually have any sort of plan to replace it.

So while Republicans have done a masterful job at working their supporters into a fearful frenzy of hate, anger and paranoia about Obamacare, most conservative voters have forgotten to ask one very simple question:Whats the Republican plan to replace it?
