They may not like it, but they don't want to repeal it - Obamacare in the South

Southerners Don’t Like Obamacare. They Also Don’t Want to Repeal It.

Despite strong dislike of President Obama’s handling of health care, a majority of people in three Southern states – Kentucky, Louisiana and North Carolina – would rather that Congress improve his signature health care law than repeal and replace it, according to a New York Times Upshot/Kaiser Family Foundation poll.

The poll also found that a majority of Kentucky residents – and a plurality in a fourth state, Arkansas — said they thought the health care marketplace in their state was working well, even as they expressed strong disapproval of the health care law. More than twice as many Kentuckians say their state exchange is working well than say it is not.

The findings in the four states — all with political races that could tip the balance of power in the Senate — underscore the complex and often contradictory views of Mr. Obama’s principal domestic legislation four years after it became law.

“I’m a Republican, but I’m tired of them saying ‘Repeal, repeal, repeal,' ” Ms. Broome, 53, said in a follow-up interview.

Why is it they truly don't like it? The media is partially blamed here, imagine that!

1. I bet if they renamed the ACA to "white man care" they wouldn't have a problem with it...

2. Their solution is simple. Kick the Republican Governors out as soon as

possible. That is the classic "no brainer". Wake up Republican voters!
