Doh! Most Democrats now believe ObamaCare won’t help and may hurt them

Cry me a freakin’ river:

Two-thirds of Democrats now believe Obama’s health care reforms will either hurt them personally or have no effect on their daily lives, a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday shows. In comparison, just 27 percent of Democratic respondents said the reforms would help them.

As for the rest?

Just 3 percent of Republicans and 15 percent of independents believe the president’s overhaul will help them personally, the poll shows. Even worse for the White House, 68 percent of self-identified Republicans and more than a third of all independents said the reforms would hurt them personally.

But a Democratic Congress rammed it through anyway, didn’t it?  And a sell-out Chief Justice found it to be “Consitutional”, so now we have to live with it – at least temporarily.

Yet most of the country believes it won’t do what was advertised and will instead cost them more.  And most of them have believed that (rightfully so) since the beginning.

Yet we still have it.

How anyone, even Democrats, believed that adding layers of government regulation, taxation and bureaucracy could possibly make the health care system less expensive remains one of those mysteries of life.  Well, not really.  It’s call delusion.  And in this case, it was something they wanted to believe badly and facts and reality just got in the way of that belief.  And now what has their secular faith brought us?

Another in a long line of disastrous and costly government  programs that we can’t afford.

And now they want to bitch.

Screw ‘em.

  • I not only hope it hurts them, I hope it hurts them severely and for a prolonged period of time.  Stories like this make me extremely happy. Chickens, roosts and all that.

    Keep those words in mind, and then replay the Liar In Chief’s recent comments that they the government is ‘us’ and ‘we’ are constrained by the Constitution, so we need never fear the government.

    What a annoying little twerp this President is.

    • So what are the chances of “singled payer” as a replacement ?

      • Very High.

        Obamacare is the cloward-piven strategy on steroids.   It will so screw up the system, full socialization will sound like a good idea.

        And it can’t be undone now.  The expansion of welfare programs to include more people won’t be undone.  The armies of government workers hired will no be fired.  The regulations will only be reforged by republicans to benefit their cronies as opposed to the democrat’s cronies.

        It would be easier to make Lindsay Lohan a virgin again than undo Obamacare now.   People made their choice and now I’m forced to live with it.

  • In Arkansas every Congressman who voted for Obama care is no longer in office except Senator Pryor, and he will be defeated for his vote in the upcoming election!

  • We’ve been ALL OVER this topic on Common Cents…

  • I truly feel Scott Brown’s lone vote on Socialized Medicine screwed us.
    Brown didn’t run for Kerry’s senate seat because his betrayal would have dogged him for the whole race.
    He has a lot of balls to show his face on TV, now a FOX News spokesman, a so-called TEA Party candidate (Spit).

    • Umm…no GOP senator voted for ObamaCare.

    • FoxNews has never been anything but serve the purpose of a cathartic dead end.  A placebo.

      They’ve gotten even worse since Murdoch’s Sky News got in trouble in England.  Basically he started selling out the right at an even higher level and mysteriously the heat in the UK went away.   My 2 cents on my observation.

      • Spot on  – what stops them from covering say, Fast and Furious 24×7 like the NYT did Abu Grabh?

      • Please…!!!  Fox NEVER set out to be “conservative news”.  They only aspire to be “Fair & Balanced”, which has made them SEEM like they were reporting only from the right by contrast with the rest of the Mushroom Media.

        The didn’t report on F&F and Benghazi 24/7 BECAUSE they…unlike the NYT…DO NOT have a political agenda they are pushing.  Still, who ELSE BUT Fox kept those stories in the news?  Who else is even mentioning the horrors of Gosnel’s murder clinic?

  • For those prone to reacting before thinking I’ll open with the comment that I think Obamacare is a stupid, ill-thought disaster and will make almost everything about healthcare in this country worse.
    Now, you realize that the quoted paragraph:
    “Two-thirds of Democrats now believe Obama’s health care reforms will either hurt them personally or have no effect on their daily lives, a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday shows. In comparison, just 27 percent of Democratic respondents said the reforms would help them.”
    is complete misleading horseshit, right?
    How convenient to lump “hurt” and “no effect” in the same grouping, as if they somehow remotely mean the same thing.  This is either intentionally misleading or journalistic slop and I suspect the former since the only way to find out about the 27% is to read the actual results, which would then show that ONLY 11% said HURT while 55% said no effect.
    A small example of what’s wrong with journalism and politics in America today. Almost no one wants to be honest and straightforward.

     

    • Spin it however you like, but during campaign season (isn’t it always?), Obamacare was the best thing since sliced bread — now it’s just another crap sandiwich.

    • If the promise was “cost less” then “no effect” is a negative, isn’t it?

      • The question on the survey is:
        40. From what you’ve heard or read, do you think the 2010 health care law will mostly help you personally, will mostly hurt you personally, or don’t you think it will have much of an effect on you personally?
        ‘No effect’ can have a hell of a lot of interpretations.  It certainly doesn’t have to be negative.  It’s a poorly worded question and answer.  But to conclude that 55% of Democrats answering ‘no effect’ means they think it is bad is a HUGE stretch.  Furthermore the immediately preceeding question in the survey asks:
        From what you’ve heard or read, do you approve or disapprove of the health care law that was enacted in 2010? IF APPROVE: Do you strongly approve or somewhat approve? IF DISAPPROVE: Do you somewhat disapprove or strongly disapprove?

        42% of Dems strongly approve and 30% somewhat approve.  Does that line up at all with the ‘journalists’ interpretation?  No, not even remotely close.
        And I’ll bet $1000 that the 30% who somewhat approve have reservations because it doesn’t go far enough towards socialized medicine!
