But if you’ve been watching network news you already know that the White House is pretty danged thrilled at how the ACA has turned out.
However, Fox News’ Washington veteran Brit Hume seems to have noticed a glitch or two.
Here’s the Politico story Hume is referring to:
Support for Obamacare continues to decline, with the law hitting a new low in approval, and a new high in disapproval, as the second enrollment period has opened for Americans, according to Gallup.
Just 37 percent approve of the Affordable Care Act, 1 percentage point less than the previous low recorded in January, Gallup found in a new survey released Monday.
The second enrollment season kicked off on Saturday, with minor snags; however, enthusiasm for the law remains underwhelming. A majority of Americans disapprove of Obamacare, at 56 percent — a new high, Gallup said.
“The law’s new low in approval — and new high in disapproval (56%) — could potentially have an impact on its future,” the pollster notes, but adds that repeal is still unlikely.
The Gallup poll was conducted Nov.6-9 and surveyed 828 adults. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Well, alls Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell can say is, why anyone would believe this tripe is beyond her:
More than 100,000 people submitted applications for new health insurance under Obamacare on the first day of the program’s second ever enrollment period, White House officials said.
The numbers, and limited reports of difficulty with the website, mark a staggering … turnaround for the trouble-plagued federal program — a development Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell on Sunday said bodes well for the future of Obamacare.
“The vast majority of people coming to the site were able to get on and do what they were intending to do,” Burwell said on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” adding that more than 500,000 people had logged on to the site since Saturday.
Look into my eyes and follow the shiny swinging medallion.
