Don’t look now but there is yet another poll with a majority against Obamacare.
A new CNN/ORC International poll shows that 54% of Americans oppose President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement. This is about the same number of people who opposed the law back when it was first forced down the throats of Americans in 2010 by a partisan Democrat vote. Companies are already reducing workers hours and scaling back the number of workers to meet the exceptions to have to implement Obamacare. Now suddenly Democrats want to delay the medical device tax. What, Democrats want to repeal parts of Obamacare? So they want to repeal a tax within a tax, eh? So how does Obamacare pay for itself? However, the full damaging effects of Obamacare have not even been experienced yet.
According to the poll, 43% of the public says it supports the health care law, a figure that’s mostly unchanged in CNN polling since the measure was passed in 2010 by a Congress then controlled by Democrats and signed into law by President Barack Obama. Fifty-four percent of those questioned say they oppose the law, also relatively unchanged since 2010.
The survey indicates that 35% oppose the health care law because it’s too liberal, with 16% saying they oppose the measure because it isn’t liberal enough.
The wide partisan divide over the law remains. Nearly three quarters of Democrats say they favor the Affordable Care Act. That number drops to 16% among Republicans.
RCP: Tracking the approval/disapproval of Obamacare.
Nancy Pelosi has never been more right in her life and will forever be known for her comment on Obamacare, that “we have to pass it in order to find out what’s in it”. No truer words were ever spoken and this is not for the good. Wake Up America reminds us that things are completely unraveling for Obamacare as Democrats are distancing themselves from Obama’s signature domestic legislation, referring to it as a train wreck. Also, Unions are now souring on Obamacare as well.
With even Democrats that voted for Obamacare attempting to distance themselves from their vote, expressing concerns and publicly making statements calling the implementation a potential “train wreck,” with unions who supported Obama and Obamacare now coming out against it and some calling for repeal, as well as reports showing premiums spiking and a seven foot high stack of Obamacare regulations, not to mention the taxes associated with the mammoth law, there is not much chance the polling numbers are going to improve in the near future.
THIS LAW NEEDS TO BE REPEALED, AND THE SOONER THE BETTER. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HEALTHCARE REFORM.
