"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Poll: ObamaCare Support at 26%

"All you folks don't understand what is best for you. Trust that both I and government know what's best for you. And if we fleece billions... well, that's just the payment we get for taking of you sheeple. If God didn't want them fleeced, he wouldn't have made them sheep."

Which is a new low.

From The Washington Times article by Seth McLaughlin:

A new poll shows that just 26 percent of Americans support Obamacare, but at the same time only 13 percent think the law will be completely repealed. 
The Associated Press survey was completed before the White House announced this week that it had signed up 6 million people for private health plans through the state and federal exchanges under the Affordable Care Act. 

The poll showed that 7 in 10 American believe the law will stay on the books with some changes. 
The AP noted that support for the law has dropped 13 points since 2010, when 39 percent favored the law. Opposition also has dipped 7 percentage points from 2010, when it stood at 43 percent. The number of people on the fence, the AP reported, has tripled from 10 percent to 30 percent. [emphasis mine. Also, some html script in the article was removed]

While  I understand people's discouragement and apathy for this monstrous law, we must repeal it. I've read this damn thing and there's nothing to save. It is so badly written, so expensive, and with so many nanny state provisions and requirements, that it has to be repealed. Americans have to focus on that goal, and demand that their senators and representatives follow through on this mission.
