Public opinion on Obamacare continues to wane, and even those that once had supported the bill are starting to distance themselves from it and the President. Currently, the President’s approval rating has reached an all time low at around thirty five percent according to some polls. Yet, the leader of the free world continues to make the case that what his plan is doing will work and it is Republicans that are to blame for any delays, mix ups, and problems. It is amazing, though, that the rhetoric has changed so much. The President, who once proudly touted the King of Obamacare title, is switching his emphasis. No, not in blaming Republicans as that has remained consistent. Rather, the President is changing the name of his legislation back to its technical name of the Affordable Care Act.

Though an ever increasing oxymoronic title, the Affordable Care Act is less about President Obama and more about sending a message that his legislation is not really about him at all. Rather, the President is attempting to say that the Healthcare Act is about you and how much it can save your family, regardless of its efficacy in this area. The President is proud of his legislation or, to be more specific, he will not be humbled enough to admit that it is a cluster… well you know what. He is going to drive this bus off of the cliff if necessary and then call the Government ambulance to come save him and the people. Maybe not an accident at all.

Maybe, the President and his minions on Capitol Hill wanted this to be a mess. Maybe that’s why he keeps taking the lead and standing somewhat behind it. Though the name has changed, even a mess up of a plan is going to work to the advantage of the leftists as it will have the public clamoring for help… in the form of the government. Single payer system anyone?
