“Obamacare is now more unpopular than at any time since the Democrats passed it into law (without a single Republican vote) more than three years ago,” says the Weekly Standard. A CBS News survey found that “a majority of Americans - 54 percent - disapprove of the health care law.” Even moderate Democrats have turned against it.

… the IRS runs it:

Yeah, the same IRS that “singled out conservative groups for extra scrutiny” and left other taxpayers wondering “whether they are under the IRS’ magnifying glass for their beliefs.” As Majority Leader Cantor said, the House is going to vote next week get the IRS out of ObamaCare.

… even Democrats know it’s a disaster:

Dozens of Democrats voted for these bills too because they know the law’s a train wreck. Republicans are going to keep doing “everything we can to make sure this doesn’t really go into effect,” said Speaker Boehner. And we hope Democrats keep working with us to do so, no matter how “meaningless” the president deems these efforts to protect jobs, lower costs, and provide fairness for all Americans.
