The way I see we who are for government being involved in health care have already won the argument. While it is too early to tell if Obamacare is a success or not, a majority of the people either support it or want it to be fixed or single payer health care.

Quote:
After a horrendous debut in October, the Affordable Care Act ended its enrollment period with more than 7 million people signed up. And our poll shows the law is viewed a little more favorably now. That's welcome news for the Democratic half of our polling team, Stan Greenberg.

"The conventional wisdom that it's an unpopular program that hangs around the necks of Democrats is absolutely a misreading of the poll data," he says. "If you look at this poll for NPR, we asked whether you favor or oppose the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare. It comes out 47 percent support and 51 percent oppose, with the intensity on the opposition side."

In our poll, the number of people who intensely oppose the law is 12 points higher than those who strongly support the law — bad news for Democrats. But, Greenberg points out, 7 percent of likely voters in our poll oppose the law because it doesn't go far enough — presumably these are Democrats who wanted a single-payer, Medicare-for-all system. Whit Ayres, the Republican half of our polling team, points to other data that suggest Obamacare will still be a great issue for Republicans this fall.


The rest at the very republicansource.

While this will do democrats little good at midterms, at least it shows that a majority (when you count the people who don't think it goes far enough or want single payer) support some form of government in health care.

The only ones this is a gift to is the insurance companies.


We'll see!

They do indeed, Revelette...and it is frustrating the conservatives no end.
