    Support for Obamacare Nosedives

    Poll: Obamacare Support Nosedives To Tie Record Low | CNS News

    Support for Obamacare has hit the lowest level since the bill was passed, the latest Kaiser Health Tracking Poll shows.

    Overall, just 35 percent have a favorable view of Obamacare while 40 percent have an unfavorable view, which ties an October 2011 poll for the lowest level ever.

    Twenty-four percent have no opinion on the law which, according to Kaiser, continues a recent trend of Americans offering no opinion.

    The Kaiser poll finds that, in the month of April, Americans are more divided than ever on their evaluations of the health law. Opinion remains deeply divided along partisan lines with 57 percent of Democrats favoring the law and 67 percent of Republicans opposing.

    Half of the public (49 percent) say they do not have enough information to fully understand how Obamacare will impact their own family.

    Sixty-five percent of Hispanics say they do not have enough information to understand the law compared with 48 percent of blacks and 45 percent of whites.

    More than half of Americans (53 percent) support efforts to change or block the law, while only a third (33 percent) believe opponents should accept Obamacare as the law of the land, down from 40 percent since the beginning of the year.

    “Four in ten Americans (42%) are unaware that the ACA [Affordable Care Act] is still the law of the land,” the report says...





    You ever wonder if maybe the American people are becoming too massively uninformed to sustain self-government?

    Yeah, that was Drudge's headline. Pretty frightening!

    They did re-elect Obama, so there's little doubt left.

    Who's going to be massively informed for a 2000 page bill that even the politicians that voted for it didn't even read and even said "we won't know what's in it until after we pass it"?

    How can anybody expect any American to know how Obamacare will effect their lives, when the regulations look like this?

    Knowing all the law's provisions is quite different from knowing that the ACA is law.

    as the private, employer-specific system continues to fail, I'd speculate that more and more people are going to become less satisfied with the status quo. we pay more than anyone else for lousier health care outcomes. hopefully, we'll wake up and take a look at how other first world nations are addressing the problem.

    Cant be shocked about this. This was passed kinda like the prom queen getting screwed on homecoming. They rammed it through in the middle of the night all the while telling everyone how much they loved them, cared about them, it was the right thing...it just FELT right...you will be glad when it is over. Then it was over, they blamed the prom queen because really, she wanted it. 5 months later she is looking at the growing bump in the mirror and seeing a doctor for a raging STD asking WTF???

    Yes...it 'passed' but WHAT was passed? no one knew. When it was confirmed that it was legal it was suddenly labeled a tax...a tax everyone had to pay. For services they really didn't know what they would cover or how much it would cost but hey...it was OK because it wouldn't really kick in til 2014. By then it will magically all make sense.
