  •  I'm tired of all of the "Blame Obama" mentality (0+ / 0-)

    He put the full weight of his Presidency and, to some extent, his re-election, behind building support for and getting Congress to pass ACA into law in the first place and he and his cabinet have been busy defending the law in courts and getting it implemented while Republicans- with the collusion of the "liberal media"- sabotage, lie, obfuscate, and otherwise try to destroy the law in its infancy- before it can take effect.  The question, at least for me, is not what Obama has/hasn't done in terms of "selling" the law but what have WE done?  Have we had his back?

      Perhaps, you should re-read my first sentence before suggesting me guilty of some "blame Obama first mentality". I am, and have been, a supporter of and contributor to the Obama campaign since 2007. But that doesn't render me blind to his weaknesses. He is human, yes?  

      So, when Americans are still so widely confused or unsure about what Obamacare will do and not do then, yes, there has been a failure by the administration to effectively communicate it.
