    Americans blame Obamacare already for higher costs

    While these are very early days for the nation's new health care law, some Americans are already blaming it for higher premiums and few report much in the way of benefits so far.

    The third quarter CNBC All-America Economic Survey finds nearly one in five Americans believe their health insurance costs have gone up because of Obamacare. The answers are highly partisan, but not entirely so. For example, about a third of Republicans and tea party supporters believe they have experienced negative economic effects from the law—about 10 points above the average—but 20 percent of Independents and 11 percent of Democrats are also among the group.

    Many Americans believe dinosaurs and humans existed on this planet at the same time. Is the percentage relevant? If 100% believed it, would it be true?

    Yep, I work for a global company and we just saw another major reorg with new announcements made on our health insurance for next year thanks to ACA. Some of these changes mean some of my fellow associates will be retiring this year even though they don't want to because they will lose spouse coverage if employed in 2014. In my case it means another hefty increase that will be more than than my raise. This ACA legislation was much worse for me than the housing bubble, or even the stock market drop. It is going to be much more costly.

    It will get worse.

    We have a really bad healthcare system. And no matter how much improvement Obamacare will bring, it will be blamed for every issue, every problem, every glitch in our current and future healthcare system, no matter what the truth is. Look at whats happening already. The ACA isnt in effect, yet all we hear is how horrible the healthcare system is getting from the Conservatives.

    But I think overall, the American people will see that having health insurance outside of an employer is an incredible thing, and that the Democrats were the only party to deliver it. Then the non-South will banish the GOP into the wilderness for 40 years.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Just because americans have been lied to and believe it does not make it true, it just means lots of people who they respect have abused that respect. Americans believe lots of silly and insane things. Some americans believe the earth is 6000 years old. Some americans believe in a zombie savior made of crackers and wine. Some americans believe they are jedis. Some americans believe women are capable of turning off their reproductive organs in the case of rape. Some americans believe babies masturbate in the womb. Some americans believe our pollution problem is a myth. Some americans believe obama has a time machine which he used to forge birth records in a hawaian newspaper so he might one day become the first president from kenya. Some americans believe smoking is healthy for them. Some americans believe there is a galactic federation run by an overlord named xenu who was imprisoned in a hawaian volcano with a giant array of lazers that run on eternal batteries and the only person who found this out was a drug addled paranoid delusional prophet who wrote sci fi books in the middle of last century.

    So what does this prove? Americans can be pretty friggen stupid when it comes down to it.
