It would be impossible (and painful) to count the number of times President Obama has accused Republican officials of trying to “deny 30 million people healthcare”.
Any criticism or highlighted flaw in Obamacare is deflected by the Administration as a terrible ploy on the part of the Republican Party to deny poor people access to care, to make the sick sicker or to add extra burdens to families already struggling to take care of disabled loved ones.
Are the American people convinced by the Administration’s tactics? It’s hard to say. While poll numbers show the majority of Americans don’t like Obamacare, the Republicans have not received overwhelming support to delay or defund the bill either. However, there is an interesting group of anti-Obamacare activists growing, and they’re not just coming from the far-right.
