Told ya so

While it may not be a surprise to those who've been paying attention, the overall response to the "benefits" of The ObamaTax have been, in a word, meh:

Poll: Only 15 percent say they have benefited from ObamaCare

Which is interesting, no? After all, the stated premise in the first place was that roughly 15% of us were (at any given time) uninsured. On the other hand, over a quarter of us feel harmed by the train wreck.

But here's what's interesting to me: over half of the respondents claim that they've been personally unaffected by it. So by the "glass half full" metric, it seems that a (bare) majority don't see any great benefit, but neither have they (personally) felt a terrible loss from it.


But then, the (so-called) Cadillac Tax has been pushed back (again); since most folks get their health insurance through employer-sponsored plans, it'll be interesting to see if (how?) these numbers begin to move.
