As usual the GOP is way out of touch.........


The poll finds that 40 percent of those surveyed said they support the law, while 41 percent oppose it. Just after the November congressional elections, opposition stood at 47 percent and support was 38 percent.



As for repeal, only about one in four say they want to do away with the law completely. Among Republicans support for repeal has dropped sharply, from 61 percent after the





Americans are divided over the law, but the strength and intensity of the opposition appear diminished. The law expands coverage to more than 30 million uninsured, and would require, for the first time, that most people in the United States carry health insurance.



How can those idiotic Republicans call it the "job killing" Health Care Law when it will bring more than 30MILLION new customers into the health care market!



How many jobs will that create for medical professionals, medical device suppliers, builders, etc etc?

It's all in how you ask the questions.



If you added 30 million patients to Medicare tens of thousands of hospital and doctors practices would close shop. Who will pay for the Medicare gay for the great generation, the gap between what they contributed and what they will take out of the system? If I were a Tea Party Republican I would demand Medicare funding be cut by 10% and direct the FBI to capture the lost 20% now being paid in fraud/waste.
