    Although most people viewed Obamacare unfavorably, 44% of the people only viewed it so because of the bad press it received. Only 29 were actually affected by it, who may or may not have gotten better coverage. But MOST Americans wanted to keep Obamacare...but they wanted to perfect it instead of repeal it like the GOP heralds.

    I hope the Obamacare strategy blows up in their face. It's not a great law, but it's better than what we had.

      That's the real beauty of the bill that most people are never informed of.

      There are "pilot programs" that test the waters and see what works best and build upon success. Some of the bill has been thworted by the Republicans but it can still evolve into a greater bill. Medicare did. Its all about understanding the history of the greatest social programs.

      Republicans are all about campaigns and propaganda. They want a successful , much needed social program to fail for no other reason than spite.  Their lack of concern for ordinary Americans can't be pointed out enough.

        ... it will take sustained funding AND an executive who won't try to kill it with executive orders for it to evolve properly.  

        The next several rounds of elections will be crucial.
