  •  Media to blame for misunderstandings. (8+ / 0-)

    It would be so nice if the media would accurately report "what it means" when a bill passes the House or Senate instead of dishonestly saying the "house repealed Obamacare". That is why so many people mistakenly think a single vote is all it takes to kill the ACA.

    They SHOULD be clearly stating that only a vote took place, and that until the bill is passed by the Senate and the President signs it does it actually happen. So many people just don't understand the way it works that a simple media sound bite sets the stage for a lot of misinformed people.
