Americans Don’t Even Realize Obamacare & The Affordable Care Act Are The Same Thing… Yet Think One Is Much Better Than The Other (Jimmy Kimmel Live)

Oy, and we wonder why our democracy is broken.

So many Americans don’t even know that Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act are the same thing. Nonetheless, they’re very happy to chime in about why they don’t like Obamacare but like the Affordable Care Act. Oy.

Interestingly, it seems they didn’t catch anyone saying the Affordable Care Act was worse than Obamacare. My guess would be that the reason is that people who support Obamacare actually know what it is.

But, in any case, is there any wonder the media gets away with idiocy and the crazy Republicans in the Tea Party get away with holding the country hostage and greatly damaging our economy?

    American’s are tied so tightly into the matrix I’m not surprised by much. However ask the average American about some “sport” or advertisement they might see while watching the “sport” on their tv and it is a different story.

    I’m not at all happy about everybody being forced to pay insurance companies. (How much money did Obama get from the lobbyists of these insurance companies?) I’m hoping that in the end it brings us to a government paid health system. Though I can’t see any way to monetize the politicians to do the right thing.

      I agree. What can we expect when our citizenry are filling their heads with useless info and not participating in the democratic process.

    Instead of asking about their preferences between the “affordable care act” and “obamacare” they should ask their preferences between “republicans” and “democrats”.

    Recently I was really, really low on money and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money.. on the internet. I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills!! I’m so glad, I did this! With all the financial stress these years, I really hope all of you will give it a chance. – lspg
