Obamacare is popular with Republicans

While many regressives oppose Obamacare as a whole, and only because they've been programmed to respond that way in a knee-jerk fashion, nevertheless when polled on the actual provisions of Obamacare Republicans are statistically in favor of many of them. You will never see these stats on Faux Snooze. See this article for more. A few examples:

"80 percent of Republicans -- yes, Republicans -- like the idea of health insurance marketplaces, also known as "exchanges."

"Likewise, 57 percent of Republicans like the idea of the government helping to pay the cost of premiums via insurance subsidies.

"54 percent of Republicans like the employer mandate -- the same mandate which the congressional Republicans almost universally oppose, including and partly because of Sean Hannity.

"78 percent of Republicans support the ban on denying insurance to people with pre-existing conditions.

"This one is an eye-opener. 29 percent of Republicans think Obamacare 'doesn't go far enough.'

"The only aspect of the ACA that Republican voters dislike is the individual mandate. But I'm sure they'd feel differently if they were informed that Republicans invented the mandate."
