VP Pence Lies About the Popularity of Obamacare - But What Else is New

Data vs Spin (from Taegan Goddard's Wonderful Site)

Quote of the Day

“America’s Obamacare nightmare is about to end. Despite the best efforts of liberal activists around the country, the American people know better. Obamacare has failed, and Obamacare must go.”
— Vice President Mike Pence, quoted by the Washington Post.

Oh wow, the "American people know better",  Obamacare must really be unpopular.  Well maybe not, maybe Pence has his pants on fire.

Obamacare Approval Hits New High

Rick Klein and Sushanna Walshe: “The best thing to happen to Obamacare might have been Donald Trump. A new Kaiser tracking poll has the approval rating for the Affordable Care Act up to 48% – the highest it’s been in some 60 such polls. Lawmakers, of course, are hearing about that newfound popularity firsthand at raucous town halls that are developing into mirror-image opposites of the famous Tea Party events that hurt the bill’s popularity back in 2009 and 2010.”
