Despite all those commencement addresses, ObamaCare still remains wildly unpopular. It destroyed Democratic power in Congress and nearly cost Obama his job. And it isn’t done yet.
The midterm elections will likely be another ObamaCare referendum. And that’s bad news because ObamaCare is becoming more unpopular as it gets closer to implementation.
The poll shows 49 percent of Americans say they believe the Affordable Care Act is a bad idea. That’s the highest number recorded on this question since the poll began measuring it in 2009. Just 37 percent say the plan is a good idea.
As the political battle over implementation of the law heats up in Washington, the numbers mark an increase in unpopularity since July 2012, right after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Obama’s overhaul. Back then, 44 percent of NBC/WSJ poll respondents called it a bad idea, vs. 40 percent who called it a good one…
For individuals, the current poll also finds 38 percent of respondents saying that they (and their families) will be worse off under the health care law. That’s the highest percentage of respondents to express a negative outlook toward “Obamacare” since 2010, when the president signed this signature piece of legislation into law following an extended, bruising battle in Congress.
ObamaCare was illegally passed and is being illegally implemented against the protests of a majority of the country. It’s like people hate compulsory health insurance taxes, hate seeing their premiums go up and hate seeing their health care trashed to accommodate some big liberal government plan to provide abortions for everyone.
