CNN Poll: Only 12% Call Obamacare A Success
Breitbart ^ | 5/11/2014 | WYNTON HALL

Posted on 05/11/2014 9:16:39 PM PDT by Beave Meister

A new CNN poll finds that just 12% of Americans consider the Obamacare program a "success."

President Barack Obama has pressed fellow Democrats to laud and run on his signature legislative achievement. However, other polls confirm that the law, which has been in effect for over four years now, remains deeply unpopular. The latest Pew/USA Today poll finds just 41% of Americans now support Obamacare. A record 55% disapprove of the law.

The CNN poll found less support for repealing Obamacare; 49% want Congress to make changes to the law, and 12% said to keep Obamacare as is. Of those surveyed, 38% backed a full repeal.

Political analysts say the Obamacare debacle will play a major role in the Nov. 4 midterm elections. Indeed, Democrats are now in a weaker position than they were this time before the historic 2010 Republican victory that resulted in the largest defeat for a first-term president since 1922.

Voters head to the polls in 177 days.

Unfortunately, there are a number of Republicans who would rather accept ObamaCare than fight.

And yet, Nancy, and Harry, and Hillary keep insisting that the Rat candidates should fully embrace obamacare this fall. I agree with them: this is a WONDERFUL strategy!

That’s spotting them 10 points and only polling celebrities to get the 2 % they did get...

But he still won reelection which should tell you how terrible the GOP leadership was at selecting a presidential candidate.

Whatever do you mean? Nominating the former head of Bain Capital at the height of the financial crisis, as well as an outspoken supporter of government healthcare schemes like Obamacare was pure genius. Took those issues right off the table. You opposed Obamacare? The GOP clearly doesn’t.

Second-tier power for which you don’t really have to fight for is a powerful lure for weak-willed and devious people.

About the only tough thing they have to do is lie to get their jobs, engineer and scheme show votes, and then go home once or twice a year and lie about what they have and have not done.

I Vow to never vote for anyone with a “D” behind their name! Take the vow and send these Progressive/Marxist out to pasture—the same goes for RINOs Too. I am ready to vote for 3rd Parties or real conservatives. We must organize and drive these Hippies from power.

I am surprised that CNN even covered that.

After all, it is IRRELEVANT.

For the Dems/Libs/Leftists is is not about results; it is about intentions. And they had good intentions. So what if it failed. So what if numerous state websites cost $millions and never got to be operational. So what if it was sold as a way to get healthcare coverage for the uninsured. So what if you thought you could keep your plan. So what if you thought you could keep your doctor. So what if you thought your premiums would go down $2500.

How did CNN word the repeal question? Probably something like: “Do you want to repeal ObamaCare and go back to letting the Evil Insurance Companies kill your children by denying them care for pre-existing conditions?”

And they could still only get 49% to agree.

The sheeperal support it because they are “good people” who want everyone to have affordable healthcare... at least that’s what they say. They’re really about the sense of self-righteousness they get for taking this position. They don’t even WANT to know whether it “works” or not.

Of course, the other side of the coin, the elitist control freak fascist liberals, know the goal is CONTROL. And in that sense, it’s working toward being a HUGE success.

Most certainly the RINOS don’t want to change it.

We were just hit with a DOD MANDATE as hubby is Retired SCPO. And Tricare Life is our Secondary to Medicare. ALL MEDS must be Base Dispensed or Express Scripts. Only exception is a 1 time fill or a antibiotic. Refills from the base come out of Pensacola with NO grantee that your DAW script will be DAW, if there is a generic version. My Synthroid HAS to be Name Brand. I am allergic to the generic. Same goes for Express Scripts. Now our health care is TOTALLY GOVERNMENT CONTROLLED!

As Medicare and Medicaid will soon be forced to Express Scripts. This will put many small family Pharmacies out of business.

Look what just raising the Min wage is doing to our Nursing Home VETERANS!

Vets lose Nursing Home due to higher min wage.

Meet Express Scripts, then go find the money trail. I can’t find it. With their record they should not have this contract we will pay BILLIONS for. Many of these drugs are being turned in at local pharmacies for proper disposal as they are the wrong drug, or some drug you didn’t even order. But YOU WILL PAY FOR. Or your other Meds are STOPPED until you do!
