The ice melting under Republicans’ feet isn’t climate change, it’s Obamacare. The issue on which they bet the house this year may be disappearing.
 
A poll this month in North Carolina, Louisiana and Kentucky found that, while people don’t like Obamacare, they want Congress to improve it, instead of repealing and replacing it.
 
Republicans running against the Affordable Care Act now have the same problem the President and Democrats had in passing it: Nobody knows what it is or what it does. It’s complicated, and the public is confused. So it’s hard to pin down – and separate out from health care’s other problems – what the Act does, good or bad.
 
It also may be that people are just tired of hearing about the whole thing.
 
Now, there is still strong antipathy to President Obama and anything he does, has done or ever will do. That is set in stone, and it won’t go away.
 
But Republicans may find that the gift that kept on giving has stopped giving. Maybe they can start running against climate change – or the theory of evolution. They don’t believe in those either, according to a new PPP poll.

I think you're right about one thing here...people are tired of hearing about how horrible Obamacare is. I'm one of them. I continue to get Facebook posts showing indisputable proof of how much it is costing taxpayers and how much people's premiums are going up because of it. I continue to get emails from various republican sources showing how so many liberal/democratic democratic candidates are running from Obamacare like it was some kind of zombie looking for brains :-). But, one thing is for sure.....it's not a dead issue and it has made its mark and even though it will probably be talked about less and less....its affects will continue to be talked about and it will have a very big effect on our nation's upcoming election. Take that to the bank.

Nice try, Mr. Pearce.

I don't even think it's a good try. The worst has not started yet. You were smart enough to put that off until after the election. What does that say about Obmam care. What if the Republicans passed a piece of legislation so bad, they had to post pone it's start until after the 2016 elections. That sentence alone says volumes.
