    Seems like an awfully hard sell.

    Millions losing their health care because of the party of "Let Him Die"?

    We know the individual parts are very popular.

    In fact, the other three provisions of the law as tested in the New York Times/CBS News poll were quite positively received -- including the 68% who said they liked the provision that allowed young people to ride on their parentsÂ’ health insurance for a longer period of time, and the 85% who liked the provision that health insurance companies cannot turn one away from being insured as a result of pre-existing conditions.

    But since Republicans only have "death panels" to replace it with, can they really sell that to the American people?

    Patient Cut From Transplant List Dies: Arizona's Death Panel? - CBS News

    The patient's worsening condition would have elevated his place on the liver donor list, she added. But the point was moot.

    The patient could not afford the transplant and Arizona refused to pay for it. Arizona reduced Medicaid coverage for transplants on Oct. 1 under cuts included to help close a shortfall in the state budget enacted last spring.

    Well, you CAN continue to underestimate how very unpopular this bill was but it really won't help come November.

    You have to give kudos to Republicans for the shear amount of inflammatory rhetoric. That was the point of the Gallup pol. Ask about the Health Care law and Americans hate it because of "what they've heard". But ask them about the individual parts and they are wildly popular. 85% is always a "landslide".

    And what do Republicans have to replace it with? What is their "plan". It just can't be "let him die". You know that's what Democrats will run on.

    Oh.....dumb-ass......nobody has gotten any health care coverage from the bill.

    It was just a scam to take away our freedoms.

    We found that out when they lowered the boom on the Georgetown Unv. and removed two college funding programs with the Affordable Health Care Act.


    Also, it turns out the Affordable Health Care Act wasn't even affordable.

    Everything is up to the Health And Human Services Sec. discretion......so it is basically unwritten laws at the whim of some dyke in the Obama Administration.

    Obama. "Vote for me!! I'm so smart that I passed an unconstitutional law in the dead of night without one republican vote!! It went to the Supreme Court and was overturned and laughed at. Did I mention that I call myself a "constitutional scholar and professor?"
