  •  I think those numbers are disingenuous... (0+ / 0-)

    They need to stop making a poll of like/dislike. It doesn't give the true sentiment of how Americans truly feel about the health care law. We've known this for years now. The questions should include more than like/dislike and also include right direction/wrong direction. When asked that way, suddenly those disapprove numbers tank. There are many on the left that dislike the program but for most of us it's because the Dems spent so much time adding things to draw Repubs over to their side knowing full well there was nothing that would ever get them to accept it even if it was their policy to begin with. Personally, I'd prefer medicare for all more like the entirety of the industrial world. We're the only ones that seem to continue to believe that a for profit health care system is one that will benefit us. If a for profit prison system leads to a demand for prisoners and a military/industrial complex leads to unnecessary wars, why in the world would you trust a for profit system that benefits more if you get sick and stay sick versus a public one that needs to get you well as quickly as possible to not tax the system's solvency?
