The bad news is that the majority of ruling elite in The Capitol City of DC don’t really care what the majority of those of us in the provinces think about what they do.  The good news is, we know they are a bunch of lying, conniving, cheating slime, partying on our dollars while we work to grind out a living, and help our unemployed and underemployed friends and neighbors.  While they celebrated the three year anniversary of the passage of Obamacare, we listened to our friends and neighbors tell us stories of having their hours cut so that they no longer fall under the mandates.  We live in reality, they live in the Capitol City.  The polling shows that we aren’t buying the charade.  Check out these numbers from Rasmussen Reports:

“It’s been three years since the passage of President Obama’s health care law, and it still hasn’t become popular. 

* 44% of Likely U.S. Voters have at least a somewhat favorable view of the health care law. Fifty percent (50%) view it unfavorably.

* This includes 19% with a Very Favorable opinion of the law and 36% with a Very Unfavorable one.

* There is little expectation among voters that the law will achieve its goals. Only 17% believe it will reduce the cost of care; 23% believe it will improve the quality of care, and 15% believe it will reduce the federal budget deficit.

* Roughly half of all voters believe the law will backfire and have the opposite impact. That includes 55% who believe the cost of care will go up, 49% who expect the quality of care to go down and 51% who expect the federal deficit to soar even higher.

* Other data shows that 54% expect the health care system to get worse over the next few years.

* Seventy-five percent (75%) continue to believe the law is likely to cost more than the official estimates, including 55% who say it’s Very Likely.”

It’s only a matter of time until the real rebellion begins.
