Democrats: Americans Who Dislike ObamaCare Are Stupid
Investor's Business Daily ^ | 2/24/2012 | IBD Staff

Posted on 02/27/2012 5:22:25 AM PST by IBD editorial writer

Health Care: Democrats used to say the more people knew about ObamaCare, the more they'd like it. Well, the public has had almost two full years to soak it in, and more want it repealed than ever.

A Quinnipiac University poll last week found 52% of Americans want ObamaCare scrapped. That's up from 44% last May. Meanwhile, just 39% want to keep it, down from 45%. Even one in five Democrats now says Congress should repeal the law.

That hasn't kept liberals from calling ObamaCare foes idiots, which is what Democratic party head Debbie Wasserman Schultz did when asked about the poll.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz should be named
Debbie Washerwoman Schultz, and she should be doing laundry somewhere instead of stinking up the halls of Congress.

Americans only oppose ObamaCare because they "didn't know" about its many benefits. "The pieces of health care reform, when you ask Americans about them, they overwhelmingly support them," she said.

My dear Ms. Wasserman Test Schulz, with all due respect, that is a totally imbecilic statement. That's like asking Americans if they like pizza, cheeseburgers, fried chicken, tacos, beer, wine, cake, pie, candy and ice cream. And when they say, "overwhelmingly," that they like each of these items, you say, "Great! That's what's for dinner tonight. Oh, and by the way, dinner will cost a thousand dollars."

Of course!

Anyone that doesn’t support ‘rat socialist policies is, by their definition, “stupid”.

More often than not, sheeperals ARE sheeperals because they want to claim to be part of the “smart” crowd, even though that designation is self-defined and therefore groundless circular reasoning.

Of course, if you’re to feel superior as part of the superior “circle”, you have to denigrate others’ intelligence as well.

Great analogy. The implication with bammercare is that “someone else” will always have to pay for it,

it’ll be at least as good as it is today,
and it’ll be “FREE!”

More and more people are coming to understand what this will cost, in more ways that just monetarily.

Our company offered three plans last year. A Cadillac, a Chevy and a Yugo. The Cadillac is gone and the Chevy now costs as much. I am getting ready to retire and have to carry a COBRA because my wife is younger than me. The Yugo will cost as much as a COBRA this year as the Cadillac did as a COBRA last year. The Company is getting compliant with ObamaCare.

39% believe they know what is in Obamacare, and therefore, approve?

Really?

Surely the pollsters verified that these supporters knew what was in the bill..../sarc

Headline: “Democrats: Americans Who Dislike ObamaCare Are Stupid”

Projection whether intended, or not. Democrats may be clever, cunning, and tenacious, but when it comes to stupid they have the corner on the market as proven constantly by the unintended consequences, or Wile E. Coyoteisms as they chase after their Roadrunner.

Common Sense is natural order. The Democrats/Liberals haven’t any, and it shows in the results of everything they cause an alteration to the natural order.

“A Quinnipiac University poll last week found 52% of Americans want ObamaCare scrapped. That’s up from 44% last May. Meanwhile, just 39% want to keep it, down from 45%”

The problem with this poll is that it draws an unspoken conclusion that the status quo system is acceptable.

The status quo is only acceptable to people who are young and not sick, and to older people who do not pay for their insurance in full.

The answer is NOT Obama care. The answer is also NOT leaving things the way they are.

Classic propaganda manipulation.

Democrats: Americans Who Dislike ObamaCare Are Stupid

Tossing out random pejoratives because people refuse to buy into their idiotic 'policies' is a trademark of the Democrats.

You'd think they'd realize it's starting to wear a bit thin by now.

The Democrats got their "shellacking" over this issue in the 2010 mid-terms elections. They not only think we're dumb, they thing we have Alzheimer's disease.

This issue has not gone away, as obviously the left expected it would. It must be absolutely frightening for them to see the poll cited in the article above.

Will they change course? I doubt it. Obama continues to be the only one in the room who believes he can speechify his way out what appears to be yet another rock and hard place he's gotten himself between.

At least its not ‘anyone who doesn’t like ObamaCare is mentally ill and needs treatment’ - yet.

And the next step is "........treatment at a facility of our choosing. But, we'll provide transportation on the cattle car of your choice."

Truly, and I don't say this lightly, I think that "ObamaCare" could be the end of America as we know it. Everyone always says that "XXXX will be the "Most Crucial / Turning Point / pick a hyperbole" Election, ever" But, hyperbole aside, I think that 2012 is the year where America will decide to continue the slide into socialism, or take a few steps back from the edge of the precipice.

I'll grant that it may take a couple of generations to get *really* bad. But I think that history will show that right now was where the decision was made.

12 REASONS TO VOTE DEMOCRAT

When your family or friends cannot explain why they voted Democrat, give them this list. Then they can then pick a reason from this “TOP 12”...

1. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene,
but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn’t.

2. I voted Democrat
because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

3. I voted Democrat
because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

4. I voted Democrat
because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.

5. I voted Democrat
because I believe that people who can’t tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don’t start driving a Prius.

6. I voted Democrat
because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

7. I voted Democrat
because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away the social security from those who paid into it.

8. I voted Democrat
because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.

9. I voted Democrat
because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

10. I voted Democrat
because I think that it’s better to pay billions to people who hate us for their oil, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher or fish.

11. I voted Democrat
because while we live in the greatest, most wonderful country in the world,
I was promised
“HOPE AND CHANGE”.

12. I voted Democrat
because my head is so firmly planted up my ass, it’s unlikely that I’ll ever have another point of view.

Who's stupid here? 100 million civilians were murdered by their own governments in the twentieth century as those governments sought to impose socialism on those civilians. Whether it was National Socialism, Soviet Socialism, Maoist Socialism, or little pikers like Pol Pot who only got 2 Million killed, socialism causes death and poverty.

When offered a choice, people do not select socialism. Debbie and the dopes like socialism, the free people of America do not.

Again, who's stupid?

“Americans Who Dislike ObamaCare Are Stupid”

Maybe they are correct. If you are smart, then you know you should hate it, totally oppose it, and be willing to vote against it at every opportunity.

DISLIKE sounds more like a (button) on Tweeter or Twitter, or whatever it is called.
