Posted on 10/28/2013 2:37:57 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
The sea of bad press for the federal government's Obamacare website may be doing more good than harm for the Affordable Care Act, according to a new poll.
A survey released Monday by Bankrate.com shows awareness and interest in the plan is growing among key demographics. The poll found 51 percent of all those surveyed -- Democrats and Republicans alike -- say the House Republican attacks and troubled launch of the Obamacare website have made them more interested in the new medical insurance plan. Only 4 percent say they're less interested.

It’s so bad it’s good!
Not all “interest” is good interest. The country was very interested in the Titanic and Pearl Harbor, for example.
The future’s so bright, I gotta wear a straightjacket.
Talk about whistling past the graveyard. The Lamestream media is doing everything possible to cover up this monstrosity. And we haven't even arrived at the actual practice of Obamacare itself. It will make all yearn for room 101 in Orwell's 1984.
WOW the media twisting to find the positive.
Putting a little reverse spin on the cue-ball, now are they?
For those of you who are not fully cognizant of the various stretching of the rules of physics that takes place in a game of billiards, thrusting at just the right spot on the cue-ball causes it to seem to move in one direction, but a trick of just having the ball slightly above the felt, and spinning a direction opposite to the direction of travel, when it does make contact with the felt, it dances and skitters off in a different direction, striking a ball BEHIND the apparent original aim. A similar tactic can make the cue-ball go in a semi-circle around where it is boxed in, and get to the targeted shot.
Just too few people play pool, nowadays.

They’ll be “interested” UNTIL they see the price of the new insurance plans & the outrageous deductibles.
Ex-Obama chief to CBSNEWS...
Former Obama Chief of Staff Bill Daley Joins CBS News
Former White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley joins CBS News as a Contributor; it was announced by CBS News Chairman and 60 MINUTES Executive Producer Jeff Fager and CBS News President David Rhodes. His appointment is effective immediately.
*****Update II: It turns out Daley was introduced as a CBS News contributor by Charlie Rose on last Thursday’s This Morning.
You know they’re gonna get hacked if they ever figure out how to bring it up.
Now that the dumb ol’ Republicans caused a scene, it has made MORE people WANT Obamacare.....signed The Media
The presstitudes wake each morning purposely trying to out-lie yesterday’s intentional lie. If they do it outrageously enough, they get a show on cable.
Great, let the dummies go sign up if they are so upset with Republicans. How much are they willing to pay to show their displeasure? How much are they willing to give up?
it was prophesied.
The sonofab*tch Adolph Hitler has been dead nearly 70 years now, but people are still very much interested in reading about him. That must mean he is getting even more popular according to the reasoning of CBS.
look for a sudden rate drop to get people past the sticker shock... then whops! prices go back up next year to twice the original price
In other words, Obamacare IMO is worse than having no insurance at this time.
As MacAfee said “ Go ahead and sign up on the web site and find your bank account cleaned out a week later.” Security flaws up the ying yang.
HA....”interest”....like in a car accident as you drive by...
Only in America would a notoriously bad program gain favor because the media sheds light on how bad it really is.
“It’s expensive, substandard and freedom-reducing... Yeah!!! Gimme summa dat!!”
Scary but plausible, especially with that built-in insurance company bailout. What have they got to lose? The mark isn’t buying the con anymore, so make a temporary adjustment to draw them back in. You’re right. It could happen that way.
The country is also interested in flesh eating bacteria, but I doubt many want to contract it.
Frightening to imagine what those demographics might be.
Okay, I was on the fence but now, with all the problems and bad reports, now I definitely support it. I can’t wait to get on board. Pray Jesus I can get in and sign up asap.
