Republicans surrendering on Obamacare

Take Me To Post Comment Form

Finally our fellow hard working tax paying American citizens are getting to see a doctor and begin living a healthier and better life. We spend trillions on wars and we give so many other countries money and aid. Time for us for a change. Keep the emergency rooms available for emergencies and everyone get healthy. Obama said he was going to pass a sensible healthcare law and he did. I think he and all the people in the administration deserve a big thank you. God Bless.

As #Benghazi fever rises among Republicans, the Hill reports this morning that the House GOP has “gone quiet” on Obamacare. There are no scheduled votes or hearings on the Affordable Care Act. Contacted by the Hill, most GOP campaign committees won’t say whether they will be launching any new attacks on the law.

As the Hill puts it: “The lack of action highlights the GOP’s struggle to adjust its message now that enrollment in the exchanges beat projections and the uninsured rate is going down.”

At the same time, the Hill notes that GOP operatives overseeing Senate races remain “conscious of the need to keep a drumbeat going against the law.” The question now: If Republican officials really are backing off on Obamacare, will the base go along?

A new CNN poll illustrates the situation nicely: It finds that far more Americans want to keep Obamacare than repeal it. At the same time, only majorities of Republicans want repeal and only majorities of Republicans think the law is already a failure.

The CNN poll finds that 49 percent of Americans want to keep the law with some changes, while another 12 percent want to keep it as is — a total of 61 percent. Meanwhile, only 18 percent want to repeal and replace the law, and another 20 percent want to repeal it, full stop — a total of 38 percent. That’s 61-38 for keeping rather than repealing the law. Among independents, that’s 55-44.

October 29, 2015
Everyday I hear about another child being beat or treated like an animal-I get sick to my stomach. I'm so tired of society holding one group to a higher standard than the other. Lots of children have problems with authority. But only black children are supposed to have that problem ...

All Criminals Weren't Raised In Bad Enviroment
October 27, 2015
Some of you need a wake up call. The first thing people assume when a child is in trouble- the child hasn't be raised in a good environment. Parent's can do all they can but how children turn out isn't always the parents fault. This narrative of troubled child-troubled home ...
