Why shouldn't the GOP stop an extremely unpopular law?
ObamaCare, or The Affordable Health Care Act, is now more unpopular than ever, according to Susan Page of USA Today:
"53% disapprove of the health care law, the highest level since it was signed; 42% approve. By an even wider margin, intensity favors the opposition; 41% of those surveyed strongly disapprove while just 26% strongly approve. Fifty-three percent disapprove of Obama's handling of health care policy, an historic high. And Democrats have lost their traditional advantage on the issue.
For the first time in polling that stretches back more than two decades, Americans narrowly prefer Republicans in dealing with health care policy, 40%-39%. A boost in approval for the law that followed the Supreme Court decision in July 2012 upholding most of its provisions, to 47% approve-43% disapprove, has disappeared."
It does not sound like fighting ObamaCare is going to be an unpopular task!
The GOP should force Democrats to defend the law. As we know, the AHCA was passed without open debate or hearings. It was rushed through Congress.
Also, the GOP should argue that the law about to be implemented is not the law passed by Congress. The AHCA has been amended or changed "19 times."
In other words, please don't tell me that this is what the Supreme Court approved 5-4.
Again, what is the GOP afraid of? Fight to de fund ObamaCare and force Democrats to fight for it. Let Democrats defend it!
