Poll: Vast Majority of Uninsured Uninterested in ObamaCare

November 8, 2013   ·   By   ·   0 Comments

Snake_OilBreitbart highlights the latest Gallup results which found the overwhelming majority of the uninsured aren’t interested in this socialist scam known as ObamaCare in the first place:

A new Gallup poll brings more terrible news for President Obama and his signature health plan, showing that only 22% of uninsured Americans intend to buy insurance through the ObamaCare exchanges.

One of the major selling points for using ObamaCare to disrupt our health care system (that polls showed up to 80% of Americans were satisfied with) was to insure the uninsured. But according to this poll, only a very small minority of that small minority is even interested in obtaining insurance.

And the 22% who are interested in jumping on the ObamaCare Train are the ones most likely to drive up health care costs for everyone. Meanwhile, the young and healthy ones who are usually healthy anyway and don’t need health insurance (who could pay in without taking much out of the system) aren’t interested (and who can blame them).

So this is what the socialist Democrats considered so hell-bent essential that they were willing to ignore the U.S. Constitution, trample our religious freedom, and the basic freedom to buy or not buy what we want???

And remember that even among the most generous of estimates, only about 16% of Americans are uninsured…and when you count out those already covered under other programs and the illegal aliens, it goes down to 10%.

So we’re going to trample freedom and the Constitution for 10% of Americans who don’t have health insurance (and how many of them-independently wealthy-can afford to pay for their health care needs without insurance?)?  We’re going to slam 90% for 10?  We’re going to make a mockery of the American way and increase health care costs for America’s producers, when only 10% may have an issue (and we knew this was the case three years ago).

Sounds like the typical big government socialist modus operandi.

Five Lessons from the Whiskey Rebellion

David John Marotta

The earliest and first U.S. tax-inspired revolt was the 1791 Whiskey Rebellion. The federal government, just two years old, was $54 million in debt from the American Revolution. Another $25 million was owed by the states. Combined, the debt was the equivalent of $1.975 trillion in today's dollars.


Every Voter Should Understand This

Woodrow Wilcox

If your congressman or senator voted for the Affordable Health Care Act (“Obamacare”), then you should understand this. A vote for “Obamacare” was a vote to cut funding of Medicare by $716 billion dollars. That is the figure given in a two year study by the Government Accounting Office that was published in July 2012.

What the ‘Gay Marriage’ Debate is Really About

J. Matt Barber

It’s called Pandora’s Box. And the Supreme Court just opened it. Did you actually think the debate over “gay marriage” was about marriage? At its core, this increasingly heated fight over “gay marriage” is about two diametrically opposed and profoundly incompatible views of reality (or lack thereof).

Mr. Huckabee is threatening defection from the Republican Party over "social issues," even going so far as suggesting he would take part in a 3rd Party Revolt. My only question to Mr. Huckabee is, 'What took you so long?'

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
