Americans are Stupid you say? Why yes, yes they are.

I'm not sure how much NBA b'ball, 'The View' or 'merican Idle you've gotta watch to be THIS stupid, but I'm betting it's a lot!
.
A new poll finds that many Americans are confused about the health care overhaul legislation commonly called “Obamacare.”

The Kaiser Family Foundation released results of a non-partisan study today finding more than 40 percent did not even know the law was in place.

“Four in ten Americans (42%) are unaware that the ACA [Affordable Care Act] is still the law of the land,” the report says, “including 12 percent who believe the law has been repealed by Congress, 7 percent who believe it has been overturned by the Supreme Court and 23 percent who say they don’t know enough to say what the status of the law is.”

The survey showed public opinion on Obamacare is at its second-lowest rating in the past two years.
Less than half – 40 percent – of adults viewed the ACA favorably, whereas 35 percent said they viewed it unfavorably. Another 24 percent said they did not know or refused to answer.
.
OVER 40% of Americans are clueless, brainless but I'm betting they are NOT Voter ID-less!!  These ass munch, bone head, non-reading MFers mostly VOTE, I'm bettin ya on it!  The older I get, the more I'm certain that we need some sort of 'qualification' for voting.

I don't know if that means property ownership or a periodic civics test, I simply don't know.  But ANYONE over 18 in this country who doesn't know this thing PASSED and is about to be shoved down our throats, has no business voicing their opion on HOW the country is run!

Personally, i think a big part of the overall Obummercare plan was to keep it as confusing as possible. That would also explain that off-the-wall answer Botox Nancy gave about "telling you whats in it after we pass it".

The basic premise of the plan being, the less people actually knew about it, the less they'll complain. Also, a jumbled up, 2700 page mess of a law is a lot easier to explain when asked, especially since no one knows much about it. Of course, you would need to have the MSM on your side for this plan to work, which is exactly how it was done.

As for the American people, IMO, i truly believe we are one of, if not the, weakest and dumbest people on the planet. A look at the condition of our country and society eliminates any doubt.

They do not even know how to implement this monster. We already have some counties who are going to switch to the exchanges in Virginia. They do not exist yet. So the fines go in effect in 2014 and people will be penalized for a program that won't be viable for at least a decade, if ever.

For voting, I suggest American citizen, valid ID, and still breathing to start.

Spider,
I completely agree with all you said.

But HOW did these idiots miss the screaming, yelling and name calling from the WH, the (D)'s in both Houses and that 99.999999% of the MSM talking about the 'rich', racist, PRIVILEGED, white conservatives and (R)'s who only WANTED to overturn Obamacare BECAUSE they hated the BLACK President. How can you miss that "X" is "X" if that's ALL the MSM talks about for 3 GD years?!

The only obvious reason that they don't know is that they just aren't smart enough to know.

IMO if you're not smart enough to know what the law is TODAY, despite plenty of opportunity to learn it, then you shouldn't be allowed to help elect the people who will make the laws TOMORROW or next year.

here in NC there are mumblings about charging some of the (D) administration that just got voted out with Official Negligence because they did NOTHING to decide whether we should create our own boards or to use the Federal Boards.

Steve, even the few people who claim to understand this law, don't understand it. Sen. Max Baucus (D), one of the people who actually wrote this law said, "it's a train wreck". It was (deliberately) designed to be a massive mess so that no one could pick it apart before it became law. In other words, we've been had. Again.

Now try and guess how many decades it will take to get this mess off the books, assuming that's even possible.

I think he means how stupid to elect a Marxist Muslim Coon.

Going for a little hand surgery in a little while. I'm going to milk this into the rest of he week off.

Funny that my shooting hand somehow gets "Trigger Finger" (Flexor Tendonitis).

Actually by the time a Conservative gets in everybody will be so sick of the current mess that dumping it and putting in tort reform and portability (like should have happened) could have some real support

Poots,
must be something in the water this spring! I'm fighting that crap in my non-shooting hand. I used to get it in the thumb on my right hand. My wife thinks mine might be psychosomatic this time though.

It's in my left hand, on my RING FINGER!
