Whoops:

The Indiana Republican Party posed a question to Facebook on Monday: “What’s your Obamacare horror story? Let us know.”

The responses were unexpected.

“My sister finally has access to affordable quality care and treatment for her diabetes.”

“My father’s small business was able to insure its employees for the first time ever. #thanksObama”

“Love Obamacare!”

“The only horror in the story is that Republicans might take it away.”

Now that people know what’s in it, away from the fog of controversy, the ACA is popular. The Republican replacement ranks in popularity somewhere between “the BTK killer” and “cancer of the rectum.” And unlike the ACA, it’s not like its individual components (gutting Medicaid, deregulating insurance, massive upper-class tax cuts) have ever been or will ever popular either. Still, I’m sure if Republicans succeed in stripping more than 20 million people of their insurance they will be greeted as liberators:
