Uninsured Like O-Care 46% Less Since Passage

From the Washington Examiner:

Obamacare favorability rating down a net 46 points since time of passage — among uninsured

By Philip Klein | JANUARY 30, 2014

… According to the January version of the monthly tracking poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation, just 24 percent of uninsured adults under 65 have a favorable view of the health care law, while 47 percent, or nearly double, have an unfavorable view.

In April 2010, the same survey taken weeks after Obama signed the health care legislation into law, 50 percent had a favorable view, compared to 27 percent had an unfavorable view. On a net basis, that’s a 46-point drop in favorability.

How many hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars have been spent on advertising during that period, trying to convince the uninsured to love Obama-Care?

Ratings of the health care law have tumbled since the botched rollout of the program’s health exchanges last October, but in January, they took an especially substantial plunge among the uninsured (with favorability dropping 12 points).

And the exchange website was supposed to be fixed during January.

The magnitude of the drop could be chalked up to statistical quirk that may be corrected in next month’s poll. On the other hand, it could be an indication that for many uninsured, the reality of the law is not living up to the promise.

Uninsured Americans who were expecting to get cheap coverage on the exchanges may have been surprised to learn that the plans being offered can be expensive, even after subsidies. And the cheaper plans come with high deductibles and fewer choices of doctors and hospitals…

Apparently, the uninsured are believing their ‘lying eyes’ instead of what they’re being told by the administration and its media minions.

    Senator Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) makes a surprise visit to Communist Cuba and turns around and praises the Cuban Healthcare system. This begs the question: How is the American government and its paperwork associated with healthcare going to work under Obamacare? It won’t is the answer:

    As US clinicians, we they are accustomed to the never-ending paperwork associated with figuring out what health services different patients are or are not entitled to; this exists because we have a two-tiered market-driven health care system.

      If Harkin wants to believe whatever statistics Cuba feeds us, is one thing. He must be looking into
      Universal Health Care like Cuba where women are forced to have abortions and considering the many cuts Obama Care has taken from the elderly on Medicare in the US.

      Makes you wonder if Harkin had a procedure there. Maybe something like Chavez had done to keep having sex til his dying day or a pill to fix his brain.
