CBS News: 61 Percent Of Americans Disapprove Of Obamacare
A majority of Americans are not pleased with the job President Barack Obama has been doing.
A new CBS News poll finds that Obama’s approval rating has plummeted to 37 percent, a nine-point drop from his 46 percent rating in October. His disapproval rating is at the highest CBS News Polls have indicated, climbing to 57 percent.
The faulty Affordable Care Act rollout hasn’t helped matters as only 31 percent of Americans now approve of Obamacare, indicating a drop of 12 points since last month. It’s the lowest number recorded by CBS News Polls for the favorability of the law. A staggering 61 percent disapprove of the law.
Only 7 percent of Americans believe the law is working well and should be kept in place while one in 10 Americans believe thehealth care exchange sign-ups have been going well. Conversely, CBS News Polls found that two-thirds don’t believe enrolling for Obamacare is going well.
A majority of Americans also don’t believe the government will be able to fix the faulty HealthCare.gov website. Almost two-thirds believe the website will be fixed by the Dec. 1 deadline set by the administration, compared to 34 percent of people who believe it will be.
Last week, federal health officials revealed that just 26,794 people enrolled for health insurance through the federal website during the first, flawed month of operations, and a total of 106,000 nationwide — a small fraction of what they had projected.
Obama has apologized for the faulty rollout and for the millions of Americans who are losing their coverage due to the law. A CBS News analysis found that nearly 5 million Americans will lose their current health plan due to Obamacare.
In the wake of growing criticism over the cancellations, Obama tried to make good on a previous promise, saying those who like their insurance can keep it for one more year. However, the ultimate decision still lies with insurers and state insurance commissioners.
EXCLUSIVE — MR. PRESIDENT, TEAR DOWN THIS WEBSITE
Many Americans have experienced the ill effects of Obamacare. That’s because the President’s broken promises are piling up. He promised that if you like your health care plan you can keep it. But for millions of Americans, that’s not true.
He said that the law would make health insurance more affordable. But across the country, Americans are seeing their premiums go up, not down. And when launching Healthcare.gov, the Obama administration said that the website was safe, secure and open for business. We now know that isn’t true, either.
The data obtained by Healthcare.gov is one of the largest collections of personal information ever assembled. It links information between seven different federal agencies and state agencies and government contractors.
The website requires users to provide personal information like birth dates, social security numbers, and household incomes in order to obtain information about potential health coverage. But security experts have expressed concern about flaws in the site that put this personal data at risk and subject users to the threat of identity theft.
This week, the Science Committee, which I chair, held a hearing to examine security and privacy concerns about the Obamacare website. We heard from witnesses outside the government who are experts in cybersecurity and hacking websites. They provided a convincing evidence of the vulnerabilities that underlie Healthcare.gov.
One of our witnesses, David Kennedy, is a “white hat hacker,” who is hired by companies around the world to test the security of their online systems by essentially hacking their websites. During the hearing, Mr. Kennedy gave a demonstration of the healthcare.gov website’s vulnerabilities showing in real-time that hackers can access personal information on the website. It’s clear that not only is the website vulnerable, it’s under attack.
When asked whether he believed the website had already been compromised by hackers, Mr. Kennedy testified that he believed the website has either already been hacked or soon will be.
The massive amount of personal information collected by the Healthcare.gov website creates a tempting target for scam artists. Identity theft jeopardizes credit ratings and personal finances.
Here are some real-life examples of people who have already had misfortune after using the Obamacare website. Mr. Thomas Dougall of South Carolina received a surprise phone call from a stranger one Friday evening explaining that he had just downloaded a letter off the Healthcare.gov website containing Dougall’s personal information.
And when Lisa Martinson of Missouri called Healthcare.gov’s customer service after forgetting her password, she was told three different people were given access to her account, address and social security number.
Aside from technological vulnerabilities, it turns out that federal employees—called navigators—who help users apply for insurance on the Healthcare.gov website have not received background checks. Yet they are able to access the personal information of thousands of people.
These threats to Americans’ well-being and financial security should make us question the future of Obamacare. Perhaps it is time to take Obamacare off of life support. Americans deserve a healthcare system that works and that they can trust.
The Obama administration has a responsibility to ensure that the personal and financial data collected by the government is secure. It is clear that is not the case today. In their haste to launch Healthcare.gov, it appears the administration cut corners that leave the site open to hackers and other online criminals.
Given the distressing testimony we heard at the Science Committee’s hearing about Healthcare.gov, there is only one reasonable course of action. Mr. President, take down this website.
Obamacare, Another American Scandal Under Obama
Obamacare (ACA), is a prime example of cronyism in President Barack Hussien Obama’s administration, according to Bill Kristol, founder and editor of The Weekly Standard.
“It’s big government at work and crony big government at work and the Obama administration at work and Obamacare at work,” Mr. Kristol on TV saturday.
“It just exemplifies why someone of us have been so opposed to Obamacare and so insistent that the core conservative agenda for the next two years . . . has to be to the repeal of Obamacare.”
Mr. Kristol believes the social engineering behind the healthcare law “really brings home” how radical it is.
“There are a ton of liberal policies that tax people to give benefits to the poor, the elderly, or to students, or others and . . . people like us tend not to like those policies very much, think they’re much too extravagant and need to be reformed . . . but that’s one thing,” he said.
“They still don’t really intrude on your personal liberty and your personal life quite the way this does.”
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich last week compared the Affordable Care Act to the Watergate Scandal, but Mr. Kristol believes the healthcare law is far worse.
“Obamacare, honestly, will do more damage to the country than Watergate ever could’ve done,” he said.
“Watergate was stupid, petty, partisan politics and [President Richard] Nixon did misuse the Oval Office and then did lie to the country about it, probably.
“But, here, we have a legislative takeover of a huge percentage of the economy and an area that’s so important to everyone’s lives. So, no, I haven’t really thought of that analogy.”
On the question of Iran continuing to build its nuclear weapons program, Mr. Kristol believes the United States must intervene. Whether that will happen, he says, is doubtful.
“The United States should prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, but I don’t think the Obama administration is going to,” he said.
“They don’t know they believe in the negotiations. They think there’s real hope that we can have an interim deal. I have no confidence, unfortunately, that the US is going to do the right thing here.”
Therefore, he said, Israel may have to act on its own in stopping Iran’s nuclear might.
“If they do, we should certainly support them. So this could be a huge issue in the next 6 to 9 months.
Between Obamacare and Iran, it will bring home how feckless, how irresponsible a leader Mr. Obama is.
