ObamaCare was passed as the “Affordable Care Act”. Now, as people are seeing their revised Health Care Plan for the first time under the new law, we are realizing just how misleading the title of that law really is…
According to a CNN Poll, only 35% of people now support ObamaCare, while 62% oppose the legislation. That is the lowest level of support the law has seen yet, and it coincides with everyone getting information about their new 2014 health care plans at work.
This massive drop in support has to do with two major issues:
1) People are realizing that the cost of their insurance is going up…not down
2) People are realizing that their insurance is changing, when the President said it would not
On the issue of the cost going up, the most glaring statistic is that 42% of people now say that they will be worse off under their new Plan, which is a stunning indictment of what was supposed to increase “Affordable Care”. In addition, despite the 35% of people who still support the legislation, only 16% admit that they will actually be better off with ObamaCare than they were previously. That means that we are paying over $2.6 TRILLION in government funds, along with paying higher premiums on our own policies, to help only 16% of the population…
On the issue of you being able to keep your own health plan if you like it, they now estimate that 15 million people have lost their current insurance, and over 100 million people will have their work insurance altered due to the new law. The CNN poll states that 35% of people say that they will have to change their doctor due to the implementation of ObamaCare.
The truth about ObamaCare is finally coming out, and the revolution against this overreaching legislation has just begun. My own policy premiums did not change, but I now have to lose weight in order to recoup the financial benefits that I used to gain by performing a certain number of activities (physicals, classes, exams, etc) each year. I believe that the 10th Amendment (“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people”) should protect people from Government-mandated weight loss, but that is just me and it stems from my silly strict constructionist views that we should protect and honor the Constitution that governs this great country…
Please help us replace the current Senate and drive ObamaCare from the history books in 2014!
