Liberals: Fine, Obamacare is Forcing People Off of Their Plans, and That’s Great News – Guy Benson

I guess they think it's funny that American's are losing their health care.

I guess they think it’s funny that American’s are losing their health care.

President Obama and some of his most ardent media acolytes are insistent. No matter what you may have heard, Obamacare ‘is working’ in the ‘real world.’ That’s the new mantra. Learn it, love it, etc. The Lean Forward network, unsurprisingly, has served as the vanguard of this propaganda push. Their working theory seems to be that if you repeat an assertion often enough to the same tiny audience, you can wish-cast your dreams into reality:

The American people disagree, based on their own personal experiences with the law — via Gallup:

Two notable trends here:  First, the percentage of Americans who say they’ve been directly harmed by Obamacare continues to outpace the ‘helped’ contingent.  This has been the case in every single poll Gallup has produced on this critical question — frequently by a double-digit margin. The latest disparity (27/16) is in the ballpark of the same two-to-one ‘hurt vs. helped’ breakdown we’ve seen consistently across numerous polls on this question.  Second, the percentage of Americans saying that Obamacare has “had no effect” on their lives is incrementally grinding down towards 50 percent.  Just before the law’s failed launch last fall, nearly seven in ten Americans said they were unaffected by Obamacare; that number has since fallen by 15 percentage points.  And as more people are impacted by the law, that dark green line has crept up accordingly.  Obamacare is ‘working in the real world’ for a fraction of Americans; it’s having the opposite effect for millions more.  It’s that reality, not negative attacks or conservative spin, that has driven the law’s enduring unpopularity across the board.  Spoiler alert: The ‘had no effect’ crowd will continue to shrink, probably dramatically, in the coming years.  And a lot of consumers aren’t going to be happy with what comes next.  As employers start dumping workers into government-run programs and government-managed exchanges, liberals are abandoning their previous lie (“you can keep your plan, period!”) in favor of a new sales pitch.  Goalposts, shamelessly shifted:
