That is truly the oddest picture of our President I've seen.

We're dealing with a political party that's going to attempt to outlaw the US government from studying climate change tomorrow, so it's doubtful that facts and statistics are going to sway their minds, unfortunately.

Yeah, with the current Republican line of "Taft's cooking the books" I figure they'll just unskew this poll until it says what they want.

I was told the ACA was a republican plan.

Perhaps Ted Cruz could have some sort of quick poll.

I don't understand Democrats.  Why aren't they running ads in every market about all the bad stuff repeal of TaftCare does?

"Congressman X voted 50 times to deny health care to people with pre existing conditions"


It makes no sense why they aren't on the attack; and I mean rabid over this bullshiat.

gee, it's almost as if when the sky doesn't fall the way the GOP has been shrieking about for the last 5 years, people start to realize that the only things that have changed are that people have health insurance when they didn't before.

/Unless you live in a red state
/sorry guys, it must suck having a governor who would rather you die than implement a democratic program.
 
2014-04-01 09:24:34 AM  
And if you asked people if they supported the "ACA" instead of "Taftcare", the approval rating would jump up to about 60 percentage points.

If you went, item by item, through all the things that the ACA has done, each item would probably have approval with 70-80 percentage points.
 
2014-04-01 09:24:49 AM  
Well the answer is obvious.

They must derp harder!

a few reasons:

1) the GOP bullshiat offensive against the law has been working. We are only just now on the side of greater approval and we all know how politicians love to be on the side of a losing argument.
2) Campaign ads cost a TON of money and with the only big dollars being spent by billionaires on the right, the only ads this early in the season are going to be anti-Dem

Just wait until the employer mandate kicks in and as the employers offload more of their healthcare costs onto their workforce, blaming "Taftcare" the entire way, while laughing all the way to the bank....

This aint over by a long shot unfortunately.

The primary season isn't over yet. States still have to do their primary runoffs. Why would someone blow their ad budget 7 months before the election?

MY Health Insurance went from 18k down to 3k under the ACA.
Thanks Taft!

It took me more than a month (there were some problems verifying my identity, which was a big pain in the ass), but as of yesterday, I'm covered (beginning May 1st). And pretty cheaply too, I might add. Spiffy!

2014-04-01 09:32:40 AM  
But I heard this one guy who is a friend of a friend now has to pay $5000 a month for coverage for his family. That's ridiculous!
 
2014-04-01 09:32:56 AM  
Everybody knows O'bammy done COOKED THE BOOKS! Taftcare is just a distraction to get us to stop talking about the Teapot Dome scandal so Hillary and Elisabeth Warren can steal the next election with their secret stash of Mexican and Urban vote fraudsters and fudds.

Prediction:

In the coming weeks, the gop will trot out even MORE "people who tried to sign up for healthcare but couldn't because [insert imaginary issue here]/people who were FORCED TO DROP THEIR PERFECTLY GOOD INSURANCE and get fartbongocare at $65,712.63 a month because REASONS.

Also see: people who didn't even bother to investigate their health care options because someone told them a blah guy is in the WHITE house, and babby jeebuz.

No, I know who Taft is, I'm missing the connection between him and the ACA. And I'm too lazy to Google.

My annual premiums dropped by over 6K, and my deductible went from 2K to zero (got a platinum plan.)

Damn you, Fartzilla.

There isn't one. Given that no one started referring to it as Taftcare before yesterday, it's most likely fancy lads parroting a lame analogy that Rush or Glenn made.

Can we get Taft to follow in Taft's footsteps and become a Supreme Court justice? He could troll the GOP for decades...

As more and more eole get insurance for the first time, and more eole start aying less for insurance, ublicly stating "I hatz Obummercare" is going to be tantamount to looking someone in the eyes and saying, "I don't want you to have insurance because reasons".

It's going to be as much of an embarrassment as admitting you voted for Bush's second term (ie, there will always be that core 27% of nutbags, but the rest of the country will shut u about it).
