    When the actual provisions of the ACA are polled they are actually quite popular. When the ACA itself gets polled 20% of the respondents disapprove because it doesn’t go far enough. Years of irresponsible fear mongering by the Insurance Industry and their bought and paid for reactionary Republican lackeys haven’t helped.

    Obamacare still has a long way to go to become as unpopular as Congress.

    The disinformation campaign is working. A recent letter to the editor in our local paper decried Obamacare as nothing more than socialized medicine. Obamacare fixes some of the more egregious excesses of the previous system, but introduces far too many levels to allow for efficiency. Single payer, single payer, single payer.

    Republicans state they want to repeal and replace, but they have no intention of replacement. Going back to the previous system has no advantage over Obamacare.

    Did I mention single payer?

    When the only parts of the PPACA that first got published was the good stuff announced in Presidential news conferences, the PPACA had majority support. As details began being published by those that read it, the majority swung to disapproval.

    The GOP is spending a lot of money to whip up fear over the ACA, but as we’re starting to see, premiums won’t be spiking for individuals & most will be better off after getting subsidies. Of course, the truth that the GOP ignores is that everyone who already has insurance from their employer won’t notice a thing.

    The ACA was the Republican plan. In 10 years, Republicans will be falling over themselves to take credit for it. If they had an ounce of sense, they would be working to make it more affordable & efficient.

    Single payer would still be a far better & more affordable way to go, but we have too many folks who think Health Care is a luxury that should be open to profiteering.

    “People who read the bill are what is making it unpopular.”

    Really? I assume you’ve read the bill, then. What specific part of the bill of the ACA will negatively impact you personally?

    Unless you are a man under the age of 40 who does not have employer provided insurance, who is also making a pretty good living, you are blowing smoke. Their premiums will go up by perhaps as much as 50%. But their premiums are already much lower than any other group out there. A single person making $45,000 a year will not be wiped out by insurance premiums going up by a hundred bucks or so.

    Any employer that says they are dropping employee health insurance because of the ACA was going to do it sooner or later anyway.

    If we keep on our current path, we are guaranteed to see healthcare eat up our GDP. Just because the money goes to private insurers doesn’t make it less ruinous.

    If you are anyone in the GOP actually cared about this, you’d be working to improve the ACA, not repeal it. It will still be an inferior option to single payer.

    Premiums are unfortunately indeed spiking. What some refuse to recognize is that they have been spiking every renewal for a very long time, and they will use the recent spikes for justification of their opinions.

    “Did you mention half the country does not pay taxes…”

    I feel your pain and disgust. Half the people in this country make so little that they pay no INCOME taxes. They pay taxes on everything else: food, water, transportation, untilities, appliances, on and on.

    In the previous system, those who did not pay into the system just presented to emergency rooms. And those of us who pay taxes and purchase insurance premiums have been paying those bills to the tune of $12 cans of Ensure. Do you feel that is a better system?

    True, but about 3% of those making over $1,000,000/year pay NO taxes and are included in the 47% so popularly quoted.

    Death boards? Really, GoreBane? Did you say “death boards”? hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    Now tell us about the time Hillary shot Vince Foster, or how GWB sold cocaine, or how dinosaurs and cave men walked around together.

    how did we get to the 1%. I do not agree with ken. It seems some people are unsinkable Ed kennedy left a women to drown in his car but he go out. Kept getting reelected. Look at clinton used women for a cigar holder and to show his parts to and people sent him six million dollars to pay his legal expense and I bet if he would run again he would get the womens vote.. Obama when he stated to run he belonged to a raciest church that blamed the whites for them not advancing but the minister kept the money so he could live in comfort instead of helping people. sorry people have no sense
