    Which is a lot less than what occurred during the Reagan administration.

    The graphic on indictments and convictions is crystal clear.

    And like I said, I think both Presidents were very good but there is a difference there.

    The only thing Nixon deserves is a post-humus execution. His interference in the 68’ Paris peace accords for political reasons is treason. All the families who lost a soldier under his watch should have had the right to haul his treasonous ass out of the White House and ripped him limb from limb. I believe Draw and Quartering is an appropriate punishment for treason.

    Same thing England did to Cromwell.

    Not necessarily. It just means that more people gained than lost. But make no mistake. Large numbers lost their chosen insurance because of O-Care.
    A solution to that needs to be found.

    No, millions lost their healthcare insurance and had to replace it with the crappy ACA... and it took several years to get the the insured numbers higher than it was before the ACA killed people's old healthcare insurance.

    False. The uninsured rate started dropping immediately.

    lol Sure its going to drop when you expand medicaid that much and give people just over that expanded medicaid income level almost free insurance coverage.




    --------------------------

    Well at least Obama apologized for lying about keeping your doctor to many people after purposely doing that to push the crooked Obamacare bill through.

    Pew's methodology can be found here.

    Our survey methodology in detail

    The typical Pew Research Center national survey selects a random digit sample of both landline and cellphone numbers in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. As the proportion of Americans who rely solely or mostly on cellphones for their telephone service continues to grow, sampling both landline and cellphone numbers helps to ensure that our surveys represent all adults who have access to either (only about 3% of households in the U.S. do not have access to any phone). We sample landline and cellphone numbers to yield a combined sample with approximately 25% of the interviews conducted by landline and 75% by cellphone. This ratio is based on an analysis that attempts to balance cost and fieldwork considerations as well as to improve the overall demographic composition of the sample (in terms of age, race/ethnicity and education). This ratio also ensures an adequate number of cell-only respondents in each survey.

    The chart I posted showed an immediate drop in inusured people when the program went into effect ... so no, it didn’t take “several years” for the numbers to drop. Another obvious falsehood.

    By the end obama’s Term, the uninsured rate had reached a record low of 8.8%.

    You understand that the poll in your link was conducted in 2001, right?

    No one is denying or trying to excuse Reagan's popularity.

    That is an interesting dichotomy here.

    You missed the point completely. Polls show Reagan and Obama as being very popular. Some conservatives are criticizing polls that show Obama's popularity. (Not to mention the outright falsehoods about the insured and Clinton/Reagan convictions.)
    Liberals are not doing the same about Reagan.
