50% of public supports Obamacare- as it is (35%) or opposes it because they want something more liberal (15%).
Cnn poll: question 22
While 43% oppose the ACA in a traditional way.
This has been a consistent finding that the media has been lazy to report and understand.
The Democratic party is on the right side of Obamacare!
This is why in two presidential elections, numerous high profile Senate races, and the Virginia governor's race, Obamacare supporters have consistently won.
Democrats should be looking to build on Obamacare and improve it:
-public option to compete with the private sector
-increasing the Medicaid re-imbusement rate to providers
-Medicare negotiating with drug companies for lower prices
