Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (TN) decided to launch an online poll to ask, “Do you support the repeal of Obamacare? RT if you do, and share what you want to see as the replacement.” OK, we know online polls aren’t for reals but conservatives tell us they are so we’re just going to believe them this one time. And the survey says: 84 percent do not want Obamacare repealed. Only 16 percent called for a repeal.
Do you support the repeal of Obamacare? RT if you do, and share what you want to see as the replacement.

Nearly 8,000 people took the poll.
She was obliterated on Twitter.
@MarshaBlackburn why do you hate Americans? Just curious.

“Please don’t take away my health care…”
@MarshaBlackburn please don’t take away my healthcare, which I pay for 100% myself, no subsidies. Stop the lies!

@MarshaBlackburn What time can I swing by for my pap smear? No doubt you have a doctor. What about us? They won’t accept us w/o insurance.

@MarshaBlackburn Repealing without a simultaneous replacement is deeply irresponsible. GOP has had six years to come up with a plan.

In 2014, Blackburn said Obamacare is a failure because Medicaid expansion wasn’t happening. So, a journalist pointed out to her that her own state blocked Medicaid expansion from happening. But she knew that already. Republicans could fix Obamacare, but it’s the President’s name they don’t want attached to it.
