Fox News poll shows that Republicans like Obamacare more if you call it the Affordable Care Act!

THIS is hilarious:

Republicans like the 2010 health care law better when it’s called by its proper name — the Affordable Care Act — instead of Obamacare, according to a new Fox News poll.

Republican support for the law jumped eight percent, from 14 percent for Obamacare to 22 percent for the Affordable Care Act, when pollsters revised the question’s language.

Overall support increased from 34 percent to 39 percent with the change. Democratic support moved one percent; independent support rose four percent.



  1. The ACA: a job creation juggernaut.


    CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Clinic has told workers they will be laying off an unspecified number of employees as part of an overall, sweeping cost-reduction plan.

    Clinic CEO Dr. Toby Cosgrove discussed the looming cuts and changes in a Wednesday morning all-employee meeting.

    Clinic spokeswoman Eileen Sheil denied circulating rumors that employees were told there would be 3,000 jobs cut.

    She said any layoffs will be part of a multi-year plan to cut $330 million from the Clinic’s budget.

    The Clinic is the region’s largest employer with roughly 42,000 workers.

    Sheil said personnel represents 60 percent of the Clinic’s budget.

    She said early retirement would be offered to 3,000 eligible employees. Most vacant jobs are not being filled.

    She attributed most of the budget reductions to looming changes accompanying the start of the Affordable Health Care Act.

    Vanderbilt University Medical Center is eliminating several hundred more jobs this week as part of its plan to cut up to 1,000 positions by the end of the year.

    The cuts are expected to continue for several more weeks, and should be complete by late October.

    According to a letter sent to state and city officials, Vanderbilt said the workers receiving notice would be “permanently laid off starting on November 16, 2013 and continuing until or on about December 31, 2013.” All affected employees will be given 60 days’ notice, the letter said.

    And your point is…………?


  4. Just keeping you updated on health care reform my friend.

  5. If ignorance is bliss, FOX News viewers must be in a state of pure rapture.

    It’s both amusing and sad that so many Americans strongly support the key components provided within the ACA, yet they simultaneously do not support “ObamaCare”.

    This makes about as much sense as stating that you love grilled ground beef patties with melted cheese, ketchup, pickles, onions, lettuce, and tomato between a sliced sesame seed bun … but you hate hamburgers.
