The Law of Unintended Consequences has no sunset clause:
“There have backlashes, but never like this,” said Harvard School of Public Health professor Robert Blendon, who co-authored the analysis of several polls taken since 2010, reports Politico.
Just 47 percent of Americans believe the government should make sure there is health coverage for all, a number that has dropped drastically from 69 percent in 2006, before President Barack Obama took office.
And among voters most likely to cast ballots on Nov. 4, just one in four think the government should play a role in health care coverage, said the analysis, which was released on Wednesday.
Somewhat paradoxically, declining numbers of Americans want to see ♡bamaCare!!! repealed or scaled back, although that could be a function of either people getting used to the New Craptaculence, or not wanting to make losers out of the law’s relatively few winners, or out of frustration that real reform seems impossible.
