The Kaiser institute released a study showing that 42% of Americans don't know Obamacare is law.  Some thought the SCOTUS had repealed it, others that congress had done so and still many who never knew it became law.  Could this be how Obama got reelected, because of a stupid, uninformed electorate?

This is the less on the validity of the bill, and more on the plain ignorance of the American public.

Wouldn't be surprised if 40% of the people didn't know who the vice president is.

Is it that 40% don't know, or is it actually 40% don't give a flying...duck?

Definantly both. The ones who don't give a "duck" are the worst. The enablers of the government. The silent, medicated flock

Obamacare has nothing to do with health and everything to do with power.

I posted this in another thread and I wanted to re-post it in another.  I guess this thread I will.  Last week, a close friend who is a nurse was complaining about how her deductible had gone through the roof.  I found out that we have the same insurance.  Knowing that, I told her that our insurance had already instituted Obamacare.  She got very mad at me for saying so because she is an ardent Obama supporter.  She tersely told me that I was wrong and that it was the insurance companies doing this.  I backed off and decided to let her figure it out.  This just shows how nothing that he does or is responsible for will even have his fingerprints on it.  He has never governed, only campaigned against the fiber and foundation of this country.

A few years back when Obamacare first started, my boss was kicking around the idea of raising labor costs with his customers a few dollars an hour for Obamacare because some of our competitors did.  He decided not to because he was worried that Obamacare might really raise costs and he didn't want to use the same excuse for a cost hike twice. (That and the extra few dollars would help him out on competitive jobs versus the gain in profit we would have over our maintenance projects.)  I guess the moral of the story is that if given an excuse to charge the customer more, a company will do so.  Especially if the customer has no choice.
