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.
