According to Gallup, public approval of ObamaCare dropped to a record low of 37% at the end of 2014. The latest RealClearPolitics average of polls shows that 51% of Americans oppose the law.

Forty-six percent of Americans now describe health costs as a “hardship,” up from 36% in 2013.

Meanwhile, in an ironic twist, several of the very representatives who helped Obamacare make it through Congress are now asking the Obama Administration to allow a special extra enrollment period for uninsured taxpayers this year so they can avoid the expensive fines. If only they’d figured out that fines really suck about—oh, I don’t know—five years ago?
