One in Three Voters Say ObamaCare Has Had a Negative Impact on Them
Obama's signature achievement is working beautifully, Harry Reid will tell you. But unfortunately, there are spurious lies being spread by "shadowy groups" funded by the "unAmerican" Koch brothers "to grab headlines" such as this one.
The latest bad news about O-Care comes to us not via the Koch brothers but via Rasmussen:
One-in-three U.S. voters now says his or her health insurance coverage has changed as a result of Obamacare, and the same number say the new national health care law had a negative personal impact on them.
Forty percent (40%) of Likely U.S. Voters have at least a somewhat favorable opinion of the health care law, while 56% regard it unfavorably, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. This includes 16% who view the law Very Favorably and 41% who have a Very Unfavorable opinion of it.
Favorable opinions of the law are down from 45% two weeks ago and are the lowest measured since late December. Unfavorables hit an all-time high of 58% in mid-November. Favorables fell to a record low of 36% in that same survey.
One victim of ObamaCare is well known to those of us who read conservative blogs.
Jim Hoft aka Gateway Pundit has been battling a life-threatening illness for the better part of a year, now. He found out in December that thanks to ObamaCare, his insurance plan was being canceled. With his life hanging in the balance, he had to hustle to find a replacement.
My insurance ran out in February. Last week I signed up for a different health insurance plan, with a different insurance company. Thankfully, I had the money to pay the high premium. But, unfortunately, I will not be covered until April. The agent told me it will take weeks to process my application. He told me the lag time was due to Obamacare. So in March I will not have health insurance.
He's asking readers to pray for him and for other Americans who are suffering because of ObamaCare.
As for Harry Reid - why aren't Republicans demanding that he resign as the Senate Majority Leader? Greta Van Susteren (not even a Republican) took the lead in making that demand on her show, last Friday. As far as I know, Republicans haven't asked for anything more than a simple apology.
We all know Democrats would be circling like sharks for the kill and so would their allies in the media if a Republican leader had said anything nearly as offensive as what the Senate Majority Leader said.
When a political leader calls a third of the American people liars, more than an apology is in order. Reid is no longer fit for that office. It's time for Dingy Harry to step down.
