ObamaCare Clusterfuck: Moderate and Conservative Democrats defecting
Which is pretty amazing, when you think about; ObamaCare, after all, is a Heritage Foundation plan. WaPo:
Just after the law was passed in 2010, fully 74 percent of moderate and conservative Democrats supported the federal law making changes to the health-care system. But just 46 percent express support in the new poll, down 11 points in the past year. Liberal Democrats, by contrast, have continued to support the law at very high levels – 78 percent in the latest survey. Among the public at large, 42 percent support and 49 percent oppose the law, retreating from an even split at 47 percent apiece last July.
With "Liberal," of course, being a synonym for Obot, since Obama, even if he isn't a Kenyan Socialist, is surely a Liberal. Oh gawd. Anyhow:
I don't see how this makes a dime's worth of difference to the rollout, since that population isn't the target demographic for Obama's campaign to sell health insurance. It might make a difference in the mid-terms, though.
The Obama administration is planning to exert enormous education efforts* in the next 12 months to persuade uninsured Americans to sign up for new health insurance exchanges, and it’s unclear how much political opposition will discourage people from participating.
On the other hand, launching health insurance exchanges for those who are uninsured offers an opportunity for the Obama administration to win over detractors through action rather than political argument, which has not been very effective. It may be the last best chance for Obama to win support for a law that has been stubbornly unpopular from the start.
That's true, and perhaps that's their strategy. So the user experience of those exchanges had better be pretty good for black and Hispanic youth using cellphones, is all I can say. Will it be?
NOTE * You can't "exert" an "education effort," enormous or not, unless you've confused education with propaganda. You might say "exert enormous political pressure" or "deploy an intense marketing campaign." Or "catapult the propaganda.
