Five of the most-liked Washington Post comments from the last 24 hours

November 14, 2013

As Obamacare remains in the spotlight, a frustration with President Obama appears in the top five and just outside it. The commenters on Carolyn Hax’s columns keep alive their streak of making our list.

From Flag error highlights a big problem for the GOP by Jonathan Capehart; Gog_Magog (38 likes) 

The angry old white guys will all be dead in 30 years and so will the GOP.

We need to speed up the process though for the good of America.

Electing Hillary Clinton or Elizabeth Warren in 2016 should help. Their blood pressure will go ballistic.

From Fox News’s medical ‘experts’ take a pounding from ‘The Daily Show’ by Erik Wemple; bpai_99 (37 likes)

The irony is that Fox News is actually harming the American conservative movement, by creating a bubble that insulates them from reality and the need to understand differing views. Maybe Roger Ailes is secretly a liberal whose goal is to destroy conservatism?

From A reversal of fortune for Democrats after Obamacare by Dana Milbank; bluesdoc70 (29 likes)

This is the bedrock problem for Obamacare. Numerous surveys taken during the time the ACA was being debated demonstrated that over 85% of Americans were satisfied with their health care and coverage. Now saying that is no longer the case is an understatement.

And..And this is the big one, The rest of Americans who have not received a cancellation letter or a stunning rate increase see no reason not to believe one or both isn’t coming…either by their employer dumping them onto the exchanges or being forced into much more expensive plans.

They no longer believe a word Obama says about it. And figure they’re next.

Speaking as someone who recently left a bad relationship, I spent quite a long time gearing up emotionally before I finally walked out the door. …

When I showed up in tears on my mom’s doorstep with a suitcase in tow and my two cats yowling, she helped all three of us into the house, and then rubbed my back when I collapsed onto the bed in sobs. She didn’t say “I told you so.” She didn’t say anything for a long time. Then she said quietly “I’m proud of you.” [Read the full comment here.]
