Poll: 35% of Americans Don’t Know ObamaCare & Affordable Care Act Are the Same Thing

UNINFORMED AMERICA, LET’S HOPE THESE PEOPLE DON’T KNOW HOW TO VOTE EITHER …

As reported at The Hill, 35% of Americans have no clue that Obamacare and the not-so Affordable Care Act are one in the same. How is that possible. The Times article bias tried to portray that people are confused between the two names for the same law, yet some how when we look at the numbers … among Republicans, a higher percentage of 72% said they knew Obamacare and the A.C.A. were the same. The liberal bias Times would have you believe that the high percentage is a reflection of the party’s longstanding hostility to the law. Sorry Times, maybe it’s because they pay attention more and are more informed.

More than one-third of Americans are unaware that ObamaCare and the Affordable Care Act are the same law.

The figure comes from a new poll by Morning Consult that found 35 percent of Americans do not know ObamaCare is another label — made popular by the GOP — used to describe the Affordable Care Act, enacted under former President Barack Obama in 2010.

About 17 percent of Americans polled thought they were two different laws, and 18 percent said the didn’t know whether they were the same policy or two different things.

The New York Times published the results from the survey on Tuesday. Morning Consult conducted the survey in late January with a sample of 1,890 adults.

The bias analysis of the polling data courtesy of the NY Times:

Sorry Libs, it’s not a matter of confusion, this is a matter of a voter electorate being willfully and woefully uninformed. When one side of the political spectrum is so uninformed regarding what was supposed to be Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation, their is a problem and it has nothing to do with confusion. However, ask those same Obamacare-ACA challenged people who the Kardashian’s are and the number skyrockets.

This finding, from a poll by Morning Consult, illustrates the extent of public confusion over a health law that President Trump and Republicans in Congress hope to repeal.

In the survey, 35 percent of respondents said either they thought Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act were different policies (17 percent) or didn’t know if they were the same or different (18 percent). This confusion was more pronounced among people 18 to 29 and those who earn less than $50,000 — two groups that could be significantly affected by repeal.

Among Republicans, a higher percentage (72 percent) said they knew Obamacare and the A.C.A. were the same, which may reflect the party’s longstanding hostility to the law.

This confusion may affect the public debate over health care policy. If many people think repealing Obamacare would not affect the popular provisions of the A.C.A., they might not understand the potential consequences of the proposals being considered in Washington.

TV Icon Mary Tyler Moore Dead at 80, RIP

YOU CAN TURN THE WORLD ON WITH YOUR SMILE … YOU’RE GOING TO MAKE IT AFTER ALL.

Mary Tyler Moore, the television icon who charmed America with such 60′s show, The Dick Van Dyke Show, and ’70s show, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, has died at the age of 80 at a Connecticut hospital. She passed away in the company of friends and her loving husband of over 33 years, Dr. S. Robert Levine. Mary Tyler Moore  was a groundbreaking actress, producer, and maybe even more important, a  passionate advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  Moore was diagnosed with diabetes at age 33 and had long suffered from health problems. She was a public advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Personally, I grew up watching The Mary Tyler Moore Show which ran for 168 episodes from 1970 to 1977, much of in syndication in the ’80s, where we had Hi Mary parties.  Any of you that have done the same, know exactly what I mean. She will be so missed. Mary Tyler Moore really did turn the world on with her smile. Rest in Peace.

Goodbye Mary …

TMZ:

MTM’s longtime rep, Mara Buxbaum, issued a statement to TMZ saying, “Today, beloved icon, Mary Tyler Moore, passed away at the age of 80 in the company of friends and her loving husband of over 33 years, Dr. S. Robert Levine.”

“A groundbreaking actress, producer, and passionate advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Mary will be remembered as a fearless visionary who turned the world on with her smile.”

We’re told Mary had been on a respirator for more than a week.  She was taken off life support Tuesday night.

Mary — who battled diabetes and underwent brain surgery in 2011 — became famous after starring on the “The Dick Van Dyke Show” from 1961 to 1966. She dazzled her way to 7 successful seasons on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” from 1970 to 1977, decimating skeptics who viewed her show as destined to fail.

Donald Trump Calls CNN Fake News At Press Conference in Wake of Release of an Unverified Dossier by Buzzfeed (VIDEO)

DONALD TRUMP CALLS CNN FAKE NEWS …

Yesterday at President-elect Donald Trump’s first press conference, he called out and put CNN News in its place by calling them “fake news”. In the wake of the release of the unverified dossier released by BuzzFeed and run with by CNN, Trump called CNN for what they were. The fact of the matter is that CNN wanted it to be true, that’s why they ran with this unsubstantiated report. They never would have done this to Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. But they are so willing to go after Trump that any and all journalistic standards are thrown to the wayside. Personally, the individual was acting so rude and disrepectful, I would have had hi removed if he didn’t shut up.

“Your organization is terrible!” Trump fumed, trying to move on to another reporter, despite Acosta’s pleas that he be allowed to ask a question, since Trump had slammed his network.

“Don’t be rude,” Trump responded. “Don’t be rude. No, I’m not going to give you a question . . . You are fake news!”
