Ahem: 4760,000 Americans apparently do want the Affordable Care Act. “The American people do not approve of the Obamacare mandate and flocked to town halls across the country to let their representatives know it. In fact, only 12 percent of Americans think Obamacare will have a positive impact on their lives,” Sen. Rand Paul wrote in the Washington Times in September.
“Throughout this debate, the public has been rightly focused on Obamacare — for good reason. This law is ravaging our economy, killing jobs and driving up premiums,” said Sen. Mitch McConnell last week.
For over three years we’ve been hearing from Republicans that Americans don’t want the Affordable Care Act. What does it mean then, that over 470,000 Americans registered for health care in only 18 days. Immediately after it was reported by Associated Press yesterday that almost half a million registered for health care in a little more than two weeks, Republicans changed the subject to the issue of enrollment numbers. Of course. Imagine how many will enroll when the health care site is actually working.
