ObamaCare now more popular than Trump

Under the category of, "LOLWUT", the ACA is polling at a 49%:

And Trump at 40%:

The part that's news here is not Trump's approval ratings, we've been closely following that, but that the ObamaCare approval rating has shot up.

I guess the ACA is like that girlfriend you can't stand most of the time except when you have sex (or get medical treatment, in the case of the ACA), and then when she threatens to leave you tell her you can't live without her.

I'll take the troll bait.

That girlfriend is going to bankrupt us. Better to end a dysfunctional relationship now and start something sustainable.

We need to relearn that most medical care is neither urgent nor catastrophic care and would be much more affordable if we stopped prepaying for it via third parties. How to insure the rest would still need to be resolved but it would be a much smaller problem.

Obozocare was cleverly

Obozocare was cleverly designed so that the fatal flaws in it would not surface until Obozo was out of office. This thing was so forward loaded with costs, participation declines, benefit denials, death squads, budget busting, nanny state, tyrant lead bufoonery that it will only go down in flames...except for the slugs who are able to get taxpayers to subsidize 99% of their cost.

The word "ensure", rather than "insure" would much better verb.
Insurance is the problem here and the countless years leading up the O'care, (a non solution) and the seven years that the GOP has tried in vain to come up with a plan , plus the present mish-mash of attempts to mask the real problem seems to me to prove it.
The pipeline from the insurance companies' coffers directly to the pockets of our legislators guarantees the continuation of more ridiculous non solutions.
Until someone has the cajones to speak up for the American healthcare user, nothing will change.

Free stuff from the government always gets more popular when there's a threat it will be taken away.

It will bankrupt us if unchanged. However, the replacements put forth so far do little to actually reduce premiums - all they do is gut stuff for poor people and cut taxes for 1%. Yay!

Insurance for Dummies (a.k.a. Congress & President Trump) is something that should be standard reading for all but seeing as that is an actual book, I'd recommend they at least read

Ann Barnhardt's recent had a great piece on her website:
Insurance: the Abject Fraud of Covering “Pre-existing Conditions”

Umm that's the whole point of the individual mandate, which Republicans proposed in the 90's.

There are no preexisting conditions if everyone is forced to buy insurance.

Valuable stuff that poll data

Valuable stuff that poll data. Use it to draw conclusions people. Anybody that can read should be able to figure out the truth from this Ras poll data….its poll data for cripes sake!!….THAT means it is meaningful….and not fake news …..and worth repeating….and worth trending….this poll data is a big f*n deal as Biden and Jasper would say. Love those double negatives….”not convinced…it wasn’t”…spot on.
Voters Not Convinced Obama Wasn’t In On Trump Spying...says Rasmussen poll

Monday, April 10, 2017
Voters are split on whether President Barack Obama or his inner circle were aware that U.S. intelligence agencies were spying on Donald Trump’s campaign, but they don’t believe Obama officials leaked names picked up in the surveillance efforts to the media.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 47% of Likely U.S. Voters think it’s at least somewhat likely Obama or his top aides were aware that the nation's intelligence agencies were spying on the Trump campaign and the Trump transition team, including 32% who believe it’s Very Likely. But 42% don’t think it’s likely, with 27% who say it’s Not at All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

A third of voters (33%) say senior members of the Obama administration spread secretly obtained information about the incoming president and his team to members of the media. Roughly half (48%) of voters, however, disagree with that assertion. Another 19% are not sure.

There is a strong partisan gap on both questions. Among Republican voters, 73% say Obama and his inner circle were aware of the spying on Trump officials, and 59% of those voters believe secretly obtained information was leaked to the press. Most Democrats disagree with both of those statements. Voters not affiliated with either political party are more evenly divided on both questions.

Poll this.

Poll this.
Ha ha ha….!! I told you so. Now my poll is bigger than your poll! Can you say fifty percent grasshopper? Only sheep bleat the poll numbers…..they change constantly and have little value.

http://dailycaller.com/2017/02/21/president-trump-has-50-percent-approva...

According to Rasmussen Reports, 50 percent of voters approve of the job Trump has done in the near month since he was sworn in, while 50 percent disapprove. His rating is down two percent from the same poll conducted by Rasmussen last week.

It's 44% after adjusting for Ras' systematic bias. But it has gone up, I'll give you that.

The ultimate irony is that

The ultimate irony is that Trump has done more for Obamacare's popularity than Obama!

To add more irony to the fire, the NY Times, CNN, MSNBC have all had banner years in ratings/readership.

Sad!
