Enrollment numbers for Obamacare have now topped 8 Million; unfortunately for Conservatives, this is as huge success story for the Obama Administration; especially when considering the likes of the 'Koch funded organizations' who spent hundreds of millions of dollars to destroy the law with fear-mongering tactics. Not to mention, the "dark" money funneled to various Conservative media outlets.
Even so, 8M on exchanges
3M on parents plan
3M on Medicaid
5M on non-exchange plans
5.7M uninsured in 24 no-Medicaid exp states. There has been much misinformation among Conservatives. As a result of misinformation, they have managed to through persuasion, and with the power of suggestion been able to stir their Conservative base to utter terror. However, there are Conservatives starting to benefit from the health care law. Of course, not likely to be reported on; because it goes against the 'Koch funded groups' true goal. The true goal is to confuse Americans so much so, they oppose any government program; the hidden agenda is business deregulation. Now, has this stopped conservatives from their battle cry to repeal the law? Of course, not.
"Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said that “millions of Americans [are] facing higher premiums, canceled plans and the loss of doctors and hospitals they liked as a result of this law.” Once again, he called for it to be scrapped."
According to a new poll conducted by ABC News and the Washington Post, Obamacare is at an all time high favorable rating. That is to say, more people support the law than oppose the health care act.The latest numbers reveal 49% of American adults favor Obamacare. And, while a reported, 48% oppose the law. It is worth noting, these numbers are subject to margin of error of roughly 3.5%. Moreover, the numbers are not conclusive. However, they do give insight into the need for a resilient health care system in which all Americans can receive affordable health care. At the same time, the law is not perfect and high cost premiums still exist for those wishing to opt out of Obamacare, or are not used to paying for quality health care plans. In the president's speech earlier today, he read a few letters he received from people praising the health care law, and the Democrats who stood up for it, even though at the time it was politically unpopular.
I have to admit, I find it slightly comical the 'Koch brother's millions of dollar attacking the law, failed.
