Americans -- Including Republicans -- Like Their Obamacare

You'd think from this picture that only white people hate Obamacare. Funny
thing is you'd be right, except now the majority of white people like it, too!

In the who-thought-this-was-happening-while-we-hated-Obamacare department, it turns out that not only is Obamacare working the way it was designed -- except in Republican states who refuse to take federal money to insure the uninsured -- but it's also wildly popular, you guessed it, among Republicans.
What was more surprising is that people who got the new coverage were generally happy with the product. Overall, 73 percent of people who bought health plans and 87 percent of those who signed up for Medicaid said they were somewhat or very satisfied with their new health insurance. Seventy-four percent of newly insured Republicans liked their plans. Even 77 percent of people who had insurance before—including members of the much-publicized group whose plans got canceled last year—were happy with their new coverage.
How many Republicans are going to campaign this fall on repealing Obamacare? Probably a lot, because reality isn't how they roll. They roll on fear and loathing. But we're onto them. Hope their base get weirder. OMG, is there any room left for that?

Go Obamacare!
