Thanks, But We Still Hate Obamacare!
Greg Sargent gets a great nugget from Democratic pollster Celinda Lake, who “recently conducted a statewide poll in Kentucky for an unnamed client and found that Kynect polls very positively, in contrast to Obamacare, which is underwater.”
Kynect is the Kentucky version of the Affordable Care Act exchange. To the extent the polling is correct, these results are another example of people loving the ACA but hating Obamacare.
Which just isn’t very surprising. People still don’t really know what “Obamacare” is. Why should they? There’s nothing labeled “Obamacare” that anyone has to deal with; almost nothing labeled “Affordable Care Act;” and there aren’t even all that many noticeable parts of the new system. Of course, Kynect is one of those new things, but there’s no reason for anyone in Kentucky to know that it has anything to do with the national law.

Thanks for the input.
I think maybe the press has equated the software with the insurance. So, if people used a piece of software with no problem, it must have been something other than Obamacare they were signing up for. In other words, they think the only way to end up with the awful plans is to be forced to use the awful software. AND that awful software-plan combo is “Obamacare”.
