Poll: No Consequences for Those Who Vote to Repeal Obamacare

The redistribution of wealth is the most stunning aspect of the Republican plan.

A new poll shows Americans oppose repealing Obamacare by only three to one. This should come as welcome news to Republicans poised to back the Trumpcare bill. The vote, at press time, was set for just before the north and south poles flip and our robot overlords take power, according to the official Congressional schedule.

Unfortunately, there actually is welcome news for Republicans in the survey, which was conducted by Quinnipiac University. About half of those responding essentially said a yes vote would have no political impact for elected officials, since it either makes those polled more likely to support that person for re-election (19 percent) or would have no effect on their vote (29 percent).

Of course, this is now. After 14 million people lose their health insurance coverage in 2018, which if our watches are correct, is next year, things might look different. People have been known to change their response to an actual from what they thought about a hypothetical.

The handy chart put together by the Urban Institute lays it out. But since 50 percent of those surveyed said they expect the repeal to have no effect on their own health insurance coverage, it, again, might take seeing to become believing. And by then, the robots will have us right they want us.
