You can argue all you want but there is no denying the truth of this statement.

It seems no one on this site understands that and comes in with a ton of excuses of how popular or how good or how wanted or who wrote the darn thing and a million other things.

I understand it. It was Democrats seizing defeat from the jaws of victory. Somebody up there should have had the sense to say...Wait a minute, this thing has gone to shite, it's not popular with anybody and it needs to be shelved before the election.

There was a recession going on and the Obama administration was doing nothing to help the folks in the trenches. Congress could talk of nothing but insurance regulations and how to get more money to the rich. Voters completely lost faith in Democrats. The ACA wasn't the only reason for the 2010 midterm losses.

Nothing has changed since then.

Thank You. I wasn't talking good or bad about the ACA. Just that passing it led to huge defeats.
It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
