How many times have you heard that argument about
Here’s what you tell the next person who tries it on you:
Those who are familiar with the healthcare law are significantly more likely to oppose it than those who are not familiar with it. Among those familiar with the law, net approval is -19 percentage points, slightly more negative than is the case for the overall population.
The more people learn about it, the less popular it gets. The Democrats who controlled both houses of Congress when it passed knew this, which is why they had to pass it so we could find out what was in it — and why now their argument is, “It’s the law of the land!”
To which the obvious rejoinder is, “So was the Fugitive Slave Law.” Except that anyone who supports ClownDisasterFail would have no clue what you’re talking about.
