Anti-ObamaCare: 54%.

Written by Gary North on May 28, 2013

A CNN poll taken on May 17 revealed that 54% of Americans oppose ObamaCare. About 35% think it goes too far. About 15% say it’s not enough. These figures have changed little since 2010.

Three-quarters of Democrats favor it. About 16% of Republicans do. About 30% of whites favor it. About 60% of non-whites favor it.

The law is supposed to set up insurance exchanges on January 1. But these are far behind schedule. The programmers cannot handle the task. All of the people who expect to be able to sign up on January 14 will not be able to.

This will lead to widespread skepticism. This is the only major program that the Democrats have passed since 2010. When people are unable to sign up for the promised benefits, there will be blame-shifting all around.

It is one thing to pass a law. It is another to get the programming done on time.

  1. Jefferson said something to the effect: "radical measures should not be passed on a thin majority."

    He was an optimist. He assumed legislators would at least bother to read a bill before voting it into law.

    The dems under N. Pelosi have inherited the wind. Unfortunately, so have the majority of American people.

  2. I have asked this question and have not gotten an answer thus far. Why are we worrying about the implementation of an illegally enacted law? Aren't laws supposed to be made by the House and not the Senate? This law was made by the Senate and though it is illegal it is allowed to stand without the House.
    There should be no worries about how to survive this law, there should be questions and concerns as to why we are dealing with it at all. It is not a real law. It is law only because Obama said it is.
    Do we as citizens just have to sit back and take things as gospel when the criminal element of the government change the rules and tell us, this is law because we said so? Why are we not fighting the legality of this law rather than it's implementation?
    We are being bullied by thugs and accepting the law changes which goes against common sense because we don't want to stand up to the organized crime and corruption in Washington which runs very deep. I guess it is easier to walk with the devil than to be in his path when he gets mad. Not only do we have rampant corruption in Washington, we have cowards that fail to do the right things as proper representatives of honest tax paying people.

    Thank you for nothing. You are a success at nothing but drawing an undeserved paycheck and taking up space that a good person could be using. This country is falling so go ahead and enjoy the fun while it lasts. Just don't complain when there isn't any more water to draw from the well.

    Of course 60 percent of Non Whites favor it. It is all part of their gimme govmnt money attitude.

  4. Gary, you claim to be an economist – someone theoretically good with numbers – but you obviously have been sucking on Fox News' teet.

    43% of respondents to that poll said they were in favor of Obamacare.
    35% were opposed to Obamacare outright.
    16% were opposed to Obamacare – in favor of a more liberal version of it, like a single-payer system.

    Guess what the math says?

    59% in favor of Obamacare or something more liberal.
    35% opposed to Obamacare.

    Solid majority.

  5. LOL @ "illegally enacted law". Didn't you pay attention when it was going on?

    1) Introduced in the House as the "Service Members Home Ownership Tax Act of 2009" (H.R. 3590) by Charles Rangel (D–NY) on September 17, 2009
    2) Committee consideration by: Ways and Means
    3) Passed the House on October 8, 2009 (416–0)
    4) Passed the Senate as the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" on December 24, 2009 (60–39) with amendment
    House agreed to Senate amendment on March 21, 2010 (219–212)
    5) Signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010

    Then it was upheld as constitutional by the Supreme Court last year.

    All of that makes it a fully legal and binding law. Get over it.

  6. 4.5) House agreed to Senate amendment on March 21, 2010 (219–212)

    Forgot the 4.5.
