A new survey reveals that public esteem for Obamacare is continuing to plummet, hitting yet another historic low. According to an Associated Press-GfK poll released last Friday, “President Barack Obama’s health care law is languishing at its lowest level since passage of the landmark legislation four years ago, according to a new poll.” The AP survey shows that a mere “26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act.”
When the law was passed, 39 percent of the public supported it. But the President, along with his accomplices in Congress and the media, assured us that this percentage would rise once “reform” was implemented. In other words, Obama and his minions are no better at prognostication than they are at managing websites, insurance exchanges or anything else relating to health care. Even now, they can’t see that Obamacare is a colossal failure.
And, make no mistake, the absurdly titled Affordable Care Act is indeed a failure. This has become so obvious that even some publications among the legacy news media, whose dog-like devotion to Obama’s “signature domestic achievement” did much to diminish their already-declining credibility, have begun to tell the truth. The Washington Post, for example, recently put it thus: “Is Obamacare working? The short answer is no.”
