The assurances given to hesitant Democratic lawmakers that ObamaCare would gain popularity over time seem to have been wishful thinking, as a solid majority of Americans have registered their discontent toward the overhaul in the two months since its passage, and as it’s becoming increasingly apparent that Americans aren’t too eager to follow in Europe’s social-democratic footsteps.

Despite efforts to roll out “popular” provisions ahead of schedule, polls show that ObamaCare is getting less popular all the time — as independents now favor repeal by a margin of 50 points (72 to 22 percent), less than half of all Democrats oppose repeal, and younger voters are jumping ship. And once ObamaCare is gone, there will be no shortage of ideas that can replace it.

The Obama Administration has made big promises about lowering premium costs for families and businesses, so they are making a variety of arguments to pretend ObamaCare will save money. But claims that the law will produce large reductions in the “hidden tax” Americans pay for uncompensated care for the uninsured are significantly overblown.

Get ready to have $2,800 taken out of your paycheck each year to pay for ObamaCare’s CLASS Act — a “public option” for long-term care insurance in which you’ll automatically be enrolled, and which will be financed with what even ObamaCare-supporting Senator Kent Conrad has called “a Ponzi scheme of the first order.”

“The president and his team understood early on that they could not pass a sweeping health care bill without promising those with good insurance that, at a minimum, their coverage wouldn’t be harmed and their costs would not go up.
