Obamacare’s Big Unknown

March 12, 2014 5:19 p.m.

President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act four years ago this month and yet here we sit going into the third national election since then with the political impact of the law still unresolved.

A few new data points today that show just how up for grabs the Obamacare narrative remains:

First and most notable is the NBC/WSJ poll that shows Americans evenly split between supporting a Republican candidate who would repeal and eliminate Obamacare and a Democrat who would keep and fix it. Second is the piece we published this morning on how the presumptive nominees in the U.S. Senate race in Michigan have basically swapped positions, with the Democrat tracking right on Obamacare and the Republican tacking left. Lastly is the rhetorical battle over what the GOP win in the special election in the Florida 13th means about Obamcare’s political impact.

Four years on and we still don’t know.
