America, you’re just not making much sense these days. Forty-two percent of you aren’t even aware that President Obama’s signature healthcare law is still the law of the land, according to a Kaiser poll. But the same poll found that support for the law has dipped to just 35%, and a whopping 24% have no opinion of the law at all. Overall, 40% oppose it.

So the numbers on the president’s signature law are not good. They never were. A majority objected to the law when the Democrats passed it. ObamaCare has been credited with making health care insurance premiums rise, with strangling hiring and with American workers seeing their work hours cut. Democrat Sen. Max Baucus, the Senate’s ObamaCare sponsor when it was passed, has dubbed the law’s implementation a “train wreck.” So far, ObamaCare has missed nearly half its implementation deadlines.

Yet, according to a Quinnipiac poll, if the 2014 mid-terms were held today, Democrats would narrowly win. The same poll found that Democrats narrowly lead Republicans — on health care.

The democrats are leading like malevolent children always testing the limits of what they can away with.

Since most of the population is either asleep or plotting to get their own snout in trough, it turns out they can get away with quite a lot.

The law of unintended consequences is going to be a *itch on this one.

"Yet, according to a Quinnipiac poll, if the 2014 mid-terms were held today, Democrats would narrowly win. The same poll found that Democrats narrowly lead Republicans — on health care." Goes to show that H.L. Mencken was right: that Americans know what they want and deserve to get it, good and hard. When the ObamaCare taxes and regulations kick in full force next year, there's going to be a lot of screaming. Yet, due to the efforts of the "Enemedia" and the incompetence of the Republican party leadership, Republicans will somehow get the blame for all the pain that will be inflicted.

That blame shift has already started. Note that some pundits are already decrying the Republican states for resisting implementing the law. That's ground prep to blame the law's failures on Republican intransigence.

And people are going to buy into it. After all, these are the people that either voted for Obama (twice!) or couldn't be bothered to get up off their a$$es and vote against him... both groups are equally stupid in my book.

The plain fact is that as long as the low-information votes count the same as ours this is what's going to happen. So, yeah, we're pretty much screwed.
