Sooner or Later, the People Wise Up

Public Opinion is getting lower and lower.
Public support for the U.S. health-care overhaul fell to its lowest level in a Kaiser Family Foundation survey after the Oct. 1 debut of government-run insurance marketplaces greeted consumers with breakdowns on websites, higher prices and potentially broken promises. 
About 33 percent of Americans surveyed in the past week said they had a favorable opinion of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act from 38 percent a month earlier, the lowest level since the law was signed in March 2010, the Menlo Park, California-based nonprofit research group, said today.
It's one thing to talk about Benghazi, the NSA spying, the IRS scandal, and reams of stories about government workers wasting money (like the GSA taking trips to Vegas.) But the Obamacare rollout is in the public's face. It's not something that is annoying but doesn't affect them, it affects the holy shit out of them. It's draining the wallets and those it hasn't affected yet are beginning to realize that it will very soon.

You can't make a wholesale change like this, one that flies in the face of market capitalism, and expect it to be successful unless you are a brain-dead liberal. It's as simple as that. Obama is trying to solve problems that is clear he himself created. The public is catching on.
