"It's like you're just mad in general and want to lash out at ACA because it's there."
I think that's the problem with most of the rabidly anti-ACA people, frankly. Either that or its more of the annoying "I hate it just because Obama wants it" mentality- despite the absolute FACT that this plan was first proposed by the Republicans. I mean, I'm not 100% satisfied with it, but it isn't the apocalypse or anything. But as a rational moderate I'm just annoyed at the irrationality and lies about the subject from the right, and I'm sort of growing one eyebrow and digging in my heels on the issue. (I would have specified "radical right", but the truth is that there is no longer a moderate right in this country. Even McCain has sold out.) That's my lot, in general- even as a right of center moderate I'm turned off by the underhandedness and magical thinking of the modern right.
Approximately 100% of the things that anti-ACA folk complain about are easily debunked by spending 30 minutes on FactCheck or PolitiFact- denial of coverage, denial of mammograms, senior losing coverage, paying more for medications, etc. EVERYTHING! (So, take your own advice, there, Fred...) It's what I've been doing every time I see some ridiculous statement by a Tea Partier. Just go to one of those websites and search "ACA" and you'll see the huge list of disproved spin from the anti-ACA crowd. (Not that Obama hasn't stretched a truth here and there, too, but he's not NEARLY as egregious.) Hell, I've got FactCheck and PolitiFact bookmarked...
I blame the recent polarization of the media. Such folk aren't really interested in fact-checking. They just want to plop down in front of FoxNews (or, conversely, MSNBC), get carried away by the groupthink, swallow the untruths, hear absolutely nothing dissenting, and get radicalized.
