lol why are all your posts about Obamacare?
A new recent poll from Rasmussen has the "success" of Obama.Care at a meager 23%.
They also say 62% think Obama.Care will be repealed if Republicans get control of Congress in November. (I guess they don't realize Obama will still be POTUS and a veto would need to be over-ridden) but that's beside the point.
If this poll can be trusted (?) then it seems people are in fact fed-up.
46% said it is a failure.
IMO, many people seeing Obama.Care as a "success" are probably ones that have benefited from one part of the law and may be ignoring the problems that other people have experienced because they are un-affected.
Or, some people may not know anything because they have insurance at work or are already on Medicare/Medicaid and are oblivious to any problems (or they haven't been popped yet because of the delays and future trouble hasn't happened yet)
Obviously there are big problems that are in fact affecting a large enough portion of the population to warrant changes.
(not seeing that "62%" in the article; It looks like you have to log-in?)
The Obama administration boasted last week that it had surpassed its March 31 goal of signing up seven million Americans through new health insurance exchanges. But few voters consider the new national health care law a success, and most think repeal of the law is likely if Republicans take over Congress in November.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 23% of Likely U.S. Voters view Obamacare as a success so far. Twice as many (46%) describe the health care law as a failure. For 29%, it’s somewhere in between the two.
more in the story along with other related polls.....
