As the Republicans make efforts to replace Obamacare, the Left’s efforts to overstate both how long the law has been in existence and its effectiveness are proving to be somewhat remarkable:
These Repub voters hate Obama so much they'd rather die of disease than be kept alive by a plan that bears his name. That some deep —- !

The level of some of the rhetoric makes it seem as if health insurance and health care didn’t exist before the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. However, Charles Blow’s comment got an avalanche of agreement:
@CharlesMBlow their level of hatred has always been higher than their level of self preservation

@CharlesMBlow I said for years that if President Obama mandated breathing oxygen, the GOP would carry around helium tanks to spite him.

@CharlesMBlow Maybe therapy for racist is covered under the plan. Probably not though.

the question is: why hate more than you care for your health care? What does this say about the mental health of some republicans? https://t.co/4iCYFM0VZi

@CharlesMBlow I know. It hurts to see members of my own family thinking this way. They hate others more than they love themselves.

It sure seems like this should boil down to more options that just “keep Obamacare” or “die.”
