As the deadline for 2014 enrollment nears, Obamacare is increasingly growing unpopular, especially among the uninsured. A new Kaiser Family Foundation survey finds that about twice as many uninsured people have an unfavorable view of the health-care law than have a favorable one.
Among the uninsured, 47 percent view Obamacare in a negative light versus the 24 percent who view it favorably. That’s a change from 43 percent who viewed it unfavorably last month, and 36 percent who viewed it favorably. Overall, half of Americans view Obamacare unfavorably, while just over one-third have a positive take on the law.

If it were legal, would you purchase a car that didn't have a catalytic converter?
Total Voters: 443
Liberals have argued that forcing insurance companies to provide added coverage was what the American people wanted all along, because–they say–no one would buy a car that didn’t have a catalytic converter.
The catalytic converter is a device attached to your car’s exhaust that filters out some pollutants. Because it slows the exhaust, the engine must work harder to push the exhaust through the converter, thus sacrificing engine performance. It is Federal law that all vehicle using public roads have catalytic converters.
MSNBC has a history of accusing conservatives of racism and then backpedaling.
On Wednesday, the cable channel’s official Twitter account sent out a message about an upcoming Super Bowl ad from Cheerios which shows a handsome interracial family at breakfast, suggesting “Maybe the rightwing will hate it.”
Below is just a partial list of recent incidents in which MSNBC hosts or other affiliates made outrageous statements about conservatives which were then followed up with apologies, suspensions, or firings.
In December, MSNBC weekend host Melissa Harris-Perry and her panel of guests mocked a picture of Mitt Romney, his wife Ann, and their 21 grand children — one of whom is black. One guest on the show said that the picture “really sums up the diversity of the Republican Party.” Another said, “One of these things is not like the other.”
Harris-Perry issued a tearful apology, which Romney later accepted. “I am deeply sorry that we suggested that interracial families are in any way funny or deserving of ridicule,”she said.
Last November, daytime host Martin Bashir responded to comments made by Sarah Palin on the topic of slavery by saying that someone should treat her the way some slaves were once treated — by urinating or defecating in her mouth. After weeks of debate, Bashir eventually resigned.
On his primetime show “All In,” Chris Hayes had a segment marking the 50th anniversary of former Alabama governor George Wallace blocking two black students from entering the University of Alabama. Hayes ran a chyron that labeled Wallace a Republican even though he was a Democrat.
Hayes later apologized for the error on Twitter writing “This was a stupid, inexcusable, historically illiterate mistake. I should have caught it and apologize for failing to.”

During a January 27 ABC News segment titled “Young Guns,” Diane Sawyer claimed, “Every hour, a child is rushed to an emergency room because of gunshots.” Co-anchor David Muir took it even further and claimed that “453 of those children die at the hospital.”
They conflated these claims with the introduction of a study in the Journal of Pediatrics (JP) to show how many children find guns in their homes–or the homes of friends and neighbors–and accidentally shoot themselves or others.
However, to make such an assertation, they ignored the fact that the JP study covered both children and teens who were victims of gunshot wounds, with the latter opening the door to deaths tied to gang activity and criminal misuse of firearms.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, the number of accidental firearm deaths for children ten and under in 2010 was 36. National Review reported that “two thirds of these accidental deaths… [were] not shots fired by other little kids but… by adult males with criminal backgrounds.”

Weeks after MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry and a guest panel gleefully mocked the Romneys for adopting a black grandchild, the network sent out a tweet suggesting that the “rightwing” writhes with rage at the sight of a biracial family.
Imagined conservative hatred of minorities is a favorite theme of progressives. Back in November, Washington Post writer Richard Cohen claimed Republicans — or strangely, people with “conventional views” — “must repress a gag reflex” when they saw New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s multiracial family. Amusingly, he drew the ire of fellow leftists who quickly branded him a racist for calling the tea party racist.
MSNBC’s tweet also comes hot on the heels of Harris-Perry’s sniveling apology for cruelly mocking an innocent child. Before she made a national disgrace of herself, Americans generally recognized her as the woman wearing tampon earrings and claiming Obamacare was “the new n-word.”
Even left-leaning publications took issue with MSNBC’s vitriol.

MSNBC’s broadsweeping assumption that all conservatives hate interracial marriage gives you an indication of what they’re all about.
