Populace has recognized the problem and it is not Obamacare

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

In a recent Letter to the Editor, Belknap District 5 State Representative Dick Burchell stated that: "57 percent of the populace rejects the ACA" This is incorrect as polling data (Kaiser Health, CNN/ORC, and others) show that at least 40 percent of the populace favor the ACA (Obamacare) or want it expanded, while fewer than 39 percent want it ended. More importantly in New Hampshire the most recent New England College poll shows that 58 percent of our populace supports the ACA while 38 percent oppose it.

Interestingly, the latest NBC/Wall St. Journal poll shows that only 24 percent of our populace approves of Representative Burchell's Republican Party... Hmm! Clearly our populace has recognized a problem and it is not the ACA (Obamacare); a quick look in the mirror would show Representative Burchell where the problem is.
