A healthcare media company sponsored a scientific poll of more than 2,000 registered voters, and found a stunning 77 per cent want to see Obamacare’s individual health insurance mandate delayed or scrapped entirely. That includes 49 per cent who want the mandate killed.
Just 11 per cent agreed with the Obama administration’s contention that fully implementing the president’s signature health care law will lower their ‘ total health care costs, such as appointment co-payments, monthly premiums, deductibles and drug co-payments.’
The Morning Consult commissioned the online poll from Survey Sampling International, Inc. Its margin of error is 2 percentage points.
The shocking level of public discontent comes along with news that members of Congress and their staffs have struck a deal with the White House to subsidize their enrollment in health care exchanges with taxpayer dollars.
And the House of Representatives passed a bill Friday that would deny the IRS any funding to operate or enforce the health care law.
Anti-Obamacare protesters may have the pulse of America after all, judging from the latest polling data to emerge about the Affordable Care Act
