What Do You Prefer: The Affordable Care Act Or Obamare?
As you know Obamacare is the GOP's nickname for the Affordable Care Act (ACA). In this video a sample of Americans is asked whether they prefer ACA or Obamacare. Most of them said that they preferred ACA to Obamacare. Apparently, they have been convinced that Obamacare is a bad thing. Interestingly when asked whether they liked some of the key features of ACA they said that they liked them. Of course they did not know that these were part of Obamacare. This is not a scientific study but it shows that public opinion can be easily shaped by propaganda. Most of the respondents mentioned the some of the things that Fox News etc. have told the public what not to like about ACA.
