The story doesn't even mention about all the health care jobs that will be needed in the near future more and more nurses, Doctor Assistants , Nurse Practitioners , etc. and they are full time good paying jobs, added to the fact that the baby boomers are retiring and more will need health care needs that Medicare and Medicaid will pay for, the conservatives hate the fact that the American people will be  Read More...

I am shocked, shocked I tell you, that the Republicans would get themselves in a tizzy over something that turns out not to be true.. See also Iraq, tax cuts spur the economy and Trickle down economics

The media/white house can keep saying that over and over but that doesn't make it true.

Even public universities are cutting back the hours of already part-time adjunct professors and instructors to keep from having to provide health insurance. States are cutting back state workers hours. Same at counties and cities. Coincidence?

Dear 4EVA,

Mr Obama was against ACA, it was republican bill passed by Mr Bush and Republican controlled congress.

Why does the right keep trying to blame him for Mr Bush issues, it is like Syria, Mr Obama is against Military action.

But the Republicans are forcing him to do it, they told him he has to do it.

You are talking about government sector jobs. This has nothing to do with ACA and everything to do with austerity budgets.

I ignore all stories that attempt to "prove" something based solely on anecdotal evidence. The use of anecdotes is a sure tip off that the writer lacks actual statistical evidence. Otherwise that writer would obviously cite that superior class of evidence.

Here is an easy way to look at this stuff. If it comes from a republican it is false if it come from a democrat it is only half true If it comes from Anonymous believe it.

We are barraged by blown up examples of some negative effect of Obamacare but every time there is a real statistical analysis it seems that we are finally moving in the right direction.
The other example is the polls that show unpopularity but when asked about individual provisions of the law even Repubs support it.

Points well made. Unfortunately, the Teapublican 'message machine' is exceptionally well funded and very effective and spreading 'misinformation'. They prey on the fears of the intellectually vulnerable and frighten, coerce, and bamboozle them into believing in imaginary death panels and speaking out against something that will benefit them.

The polls that show disapproval for the ACA
include the folks that disapprove because they think it doesn't go far enough,
and would like to see more.

That seems to get lost in the details.

"but every time there is a real statistical analysis it seems that we are finally moving in the right direction"

What direction is that?

If we were moving in the right direction, we wouldn't be having to subsidize everyone up to 400% of the poverty line for basic things.

I think the right direction is toward Universal coverage and tight price controls. These are the two common factors in h/care systems in other countries that have achieved better results, higher patient satisfaction at much lower cost.I agree it would be great to do w/out subsidies but with no ins at all they end up costing us anyway when they get sick.

We get it already.
You don't agree with statistics that make you sad.
You only want bad things for Americans.
Get over it.

Unfortunately that still removes a lot of the Republican base from the fountain of knowledge.
