ObamaCare one year later: CNN poll shows it’s just as popular as ever. Which is to say, unpopular.

by editor on March 25, 2011

Nancy Pelosi famously said, “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it.” Well, Nance, the American people have now had a full year to find out what’s in it and they don’t much like what they’ve found.

The latest CNN poll cements Pelosi’s place in history:

One year after President Barack Obama signed the health care reform bill into law, a new national poll indicates that attitudes toward the plan have not budged.

According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Wednesday, on the one year anniversary of the signing of the law, 37 percent of Americans support the measure, with 59 percent opposed. That’s basically unchanged from last March, when 39 percent supported the law and 59 percent opposed the measure.

“It’s worth remembering that opposition to the bill came from both the left and the right last year, and that has not changed either,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. “In 2010, about a quarter of the health care bill’s opponents disliked the bill because it was not liberal enough – the same as today. That works out to 13 percent of all Americans who oppose the bill because it did not go far enough. Forty-three percent oppose it because it was too liberal.”

Considering that President Obama has already granted more than 1,000 waivers to this bloated pig of a bill, it appears that even those who supported it don’t like what they’ve found in it.

Is it 2012 yet?

I think I am having a stroke! Did CNN just sort of honestly report a negative about this administration and one of its most fervently defended milestones?
NavyVet is right. You have to wait 6-8 weeks to see just your primary care doctor sometimes. I haven’t been able to get in to see mine in almost 2 years. If you need to see a specialist… ha, that wait can be, uh, well, don’t hold your breath! Keep having to go to the emergency room to get seen. This is what America has to look forward to under Obamacare.

Going to the emergency room for non-emergency care? They’ve reduced you to the status of an illegal alien.

Here’s a thought for the sleazebags in Corruption City. No doubt implementing anything on a huge scale will result in a total cluster f**k, especially when implemented by a bunch of otherwise unemployable bureaucrats. We are seeing signs of that from day one.
So, how about starting on a smaller scale. The government is broke, right? How about setting up an Obumblercare pilot program in DC. All the government employees, INCLUDING THE ELECTED CROOKS (both those legitimately elected and those fraudulently elected) are privileged to use this system first. Yes, this includes setting up all the bureaucracies necessary to administer it. But only staffed with the number of people they believe are necessary to administer to this small, er medium sized part of the population. After all, that will be much cheaper than the insurance comanies can administer, or so we have been told. Let’s see how that works first. If what we have been told is remotely correct, the government should be saving billions and the people using the system will be overjoyed.
Not the military however, they dont deserve this. What they currently have is bad enough.
Here I go, pissing into the wind again. Maybe I’ll change my moniker.

NavyNet,

It sounds to me that you have had the misfortunate of having to deal with those that roam the halls of the Pentagon and Capital Hill. They are very much a sleazy slimy bunch who wants only to further their careers at the expense of others. That is where I learned a very valuable lesson CYA all the time.

I believe that all NGO, non-profits, and charities, should also be mandated that 80% of each dollar go directly to said cause they purport to support.

Can you imagine the howling form those do gooders to have to live up to what health insurance companies are mandated to do? My guess is that only the Salvation Army and Boy Scouts would still be in business.

I have a brilliant idea for a healthcare bill that would take 1 page. MAX

-all medical insurance companies: non-profit.
-all hospitals: non-profit.
-all medical lawyers (heck, lawyers in general): non-profit.
-all pharmaceutical companies: non-profit.
-all medical equipment manufactures: non-profit.

I’ve never really debated this idea. Any obvious downfalls?

Saying you are non-profit is one of the best ways to make products very, very expensive. Most hospitals are non-profit and they still charge $50 for a Tyelnol.

Profit is good. Profit makes an organization efficient.

The government is non-profit. Except for the people “working” in it. What does that tell you?

-all pharmaceutical companies: non-profit.
-all medical equipment manufactures: non-profit.

There’s a little thing called capitalism. Without it, there will be no innovation in drugs or equipment.

Or maybe we could just have the government do all the research, since you want to take away the incentive from the pharmaceutical companies. I mean, they do everything else so well.

What do you know, the poll came up with the same result a year later and she continues to spew about what a wonderful bill it is. Keep babbling nancy, sooner or later those who have voted for you will finally see what a fool you are and how foolish they have been for send your botox stupid ass to DC.

Nah, Nancy’s voters are the ones that don’t think the bill is socialist enough.
