    Ridiculous. Let's pick this up when it's actually taken effect and implemented for a year. Conservatives have been calling it a "failure" since it was voted in.

    Interesting results, I wonder how this will impact the november elections. Seems like bad news for the Obamacare dems.
    But Ed Shultz said on his radio show today that more people are now for obamacare than are against it. I'm so confused.

    Reid is the Dems biggest weakness. The problem is though the GOP can be the GOP's worst enemy. Case in point, when Reid was a shoein to be ousted the GOP put their bat**** crazy angle up as his opponent. It's like the GOP wanted to lose.

    What the polls never seem to tell is that a big chunk of the people who don't support the ACA don't support it because it is too conservative.
    They would rather see a single payer system...medicare for all.
    Polls that break the questions down have always demonstrated this fact.
    Polls that simply ask a black and white question give false indications making it seem as though two thirds of Americans don't like the ACA because it is too liberal. Nothing could be further from the truth.
    The law is a centrist compromise and sits right in the center of American opinion.
    The poll finds that 46 percent support the law, versus 54 percent who oppose it or are unsure of their feelings about it. But that second bloc breaks down into 33 percent who oppose and want repeal, versus 20 percent who oppose the law and want to let the law go ahead. That means a total of 66 percent either support the law or oppose it but want it to go forward.

    A new CNN poll on the Affordable Care Act is generating quite a bit of attention, but if you only look at the headlines, you’re missing the real story.

    The top-line results aren’t especially surprising: 54% of the country opposes the health care law, according to the new figures, while 43% support it. But the CNN poll, to its credit, takes the next step and asked folks opposed to the law why they don’t like it. And that’s the point at which the poll gets interesting.

    I put together this chart to help drive the point home – 43% support “Obamacare,” which isn’t that bad, all things considered. But while a majority of the country opposes the law, there’s a major disagreement among them – 35% of opponents believe it’s too liberal and prefer a more conservative law, but 16% of opponents believe the Affordable Care Act is too conservative and wish it had gone further.

    A quick glance at the top lines, in other words, gives the wrong impression. Indeed, it’s rather misleading to lump together those 16% of Americans who want a more liberal health care reform law with the law’s conservative critics.

    Your confusion is understandable if you only see the poll results that the cons want you to see. Ask the next question (as this CNN did) and you find out only 35% of the nation oppose the ACA because it is too liberal.

    True. How long to you expect them to be a viable option and available to those who would chose them?

    MSNBC. Let me guess, its a centrist organization as well.

    This is a unilateral disaster, and the Obamacare dems will pay for it.

    A health savings account is not insurance; covers only $1 of medical expense per $1 saved, and the coverage is capped at the value of the account (likely at $10,000), which does even cover a short hospital stay. In short, the above referenced statement is nonsense.

    I wouldn't trust putting my personal information into that website. Plus many areas only have one insurance offering. The 7 million signup claim (which I don't believe) is really a joke, because there should be 10's of millions. And that is just uninsured people, and not any others.

    I knew there was some trick involved in Ed's statement, thanks.
