CNN Poll: Americans Still Oppose Individual Mandate, 6 in 10 Oppose Individual Mandate that Requires all Americans to Buy Health Insurance


According to a recent CNN/Opinions Dynamics poll, Americans still oppose the individual mandate provisions that requires all individuals to purchase health care insurance. By a 60% to 38% margin, Americans oppose the individual mandate. Also, a majority of Americans polled oppose Obamacare overall. CNN states that the number of people opposed is less than earlier this year. Maybe they would like to check out the Rasmussen poll, where 60% oppose and want the the government take over of health care repealed. Also, the ABC-WAPO poll had support for Obamacare at an all time low.

As a crucial component of the nation’s new health care law requiring all Americans to buy insurance faces an uncertain fate in federal courts, a new national poll indicates that a majority of Americans oppose that provision in the bill Congress passed earlier this year.

And a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday also indicates that a majority of the public still opposes the new law, but by a smaller margin than earlier this year.

According to the poll, six in ten oppose the requirement that all Americans get health insurance, with 38 percent saying they favor the provision.

Obama and Democrats hardly want Obamacare to be the issue now or going into the 2012 elections. The topic is a loser for Democrats and they know it.

      Oh, yes, why by all means buy your health plan
      from the government and give them the right to
      either dispense health care or dispense you. Now,
      the fact that the government owns your health does
      not mean that it owns you…or does it? After all,
      all decisions to ration out healthcare would be based
      on the value to the government…..hmmmm..

      My insurance has already gone up; drastically too.

      Get ready for the DEATH PANELS. This is scary folks.

      The government is going to pay doctors from Medicare to have “end of life” discussions with patients. They are using incentives to this.

      They are blaming Bush for this but let’s have a little history of FACT told about that:

      Bush vetoed that bill in 2008 and the Democratic controlled Congress overrode his veto and passed the bill.

      Another fact, is that under the bill that Bush vetoed; it was totally voluntary for doctors to do that; NOW under Obamacare it is MANDATED for doctors to do this….

      This presents two problems:

      Where are they going to get the money to pay these doctors?

      And; are you telling me; that somebody with cancer is going to want to have an end of life discussion rather than holding out hope?

      This is crazy.
