Gallup: Barely One-Third Support Obamacare

We've been saying this about Obamacare from the very beginning: The people don't want it.
Let's say it again and maybe some will understand: The. People. Don't. Want. It.
Now, what we've been saying all along has once again been confirmed by a new Gallup poll:
In fact, Obamacare has hit a new low in approval, and a new high in disapproval, as the second enrollment period begins, according to Gallup.
Just 37 percent approve of the Affordable Care Act, one percentage point less than the previous low recorded in January.
A majority of Americans disapprove of Obamacare, at 56 percent — a new high, Gallup said.
Obamacare has NEVER enjoyed high public ratings.
People NEVER expressed an overwhelming desire for the federal government to take over one-sixth of the US economy and get involved in health care in this manner. Never!
But liberals Democrats (including Hillary Clinton) always felt they knew batter. It simply didn't matter to them what the people did or didn't want.
And, in ramming Obamacare through the Congress against huge public protests and without bipartisan support, these liberal Democrats showed disdain for ordinary citizens.
Consequently, in the most recent elections they got what they deserved: Resounding rejection.
Obamacare was and is wrong. It was and is a huge mistake. It was and is massively unpopular. The people know this. They've known it all along and they're fed up. Now, they see the day-to-day results of this debacle: Higher rates, bureaucratic snafus, increasing taxes, more government regulation and a  decrease in the quality of care. That's why disapproval numbers keep climbing and approval numbers keep going down.
Obamacare is an albatross around the neck of Democrats, an affront to voters, a job-killer, an economic depressant and an obstacle to progress.
The people want no parts of it and neither should the Congress.
