    Interestingly, on health care, Americans are generally in favor of the reform, with one exception, and that is forcing people or companies to buy and pay for it.

    The one "exception" is they oppose Obamacare.

    Other than that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?

    What they're in favor of is the idea of reform.

    I highly doubt so much as 5% of Americans even know what's in the Frankenbill that passed or how it affects them, outside of the immense cost increases that are bearing down on them.

    Eight of the 10 provisions asked in the poll regarding "Obamacare" are popular.

    I like Hawaii.

    Have any Obamacare provisions actually been put into effect without creating disruptions?

    Which ones?

    Well, it has driven premiums through the roof and caused several companies to stop writing new policies.

    Oooooh...You mean has it worked the way that the Obammytrons told us it would!....Um, nope.
