Poll: 56% of Americans don’t want Obamacare

But does that mean Congress or the useless GOP will repeal it?

Nah.

new+medical+symbolDana Blanton reports for FoxNews.com, May 22, 2013, that a Fox News poll released Wednesday finds that while 26% of voters say their health care situation will be better under the new Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, twice as many — 53% — say it will be worse.  Another 13% say it won’t make a difference.

Here are some of the poll’s other findings:
  • 85% of Republicans and 51% of independents say they will be worse off under ObamaCare, but nearly half of Democrats expect to be better off (48%), while 24% of Democrats believe they will be worse off.
  • Young voters and seniors are pessimistic about Obamacare: A majority of those under age 35 and those 65+ think things will be worse under the 2010 health care law.
  • Overall, a 56% majority of Americans want to go back to the health care system that was in place in 2009, including 30% of Democrats, 55% of independents, and 85% of Republicans. That majority cuts across income, gender, education, and age groups.
  • Asked why the economy is not doing better under Obama’s leadership, 49% say Obama’s ideas have been bad and too many of them have been implemented, up from 37% two years ago. But 41% still think Obama has had good ideas, and too few of them have passed.

The Fox News poll is based on landline and cell phone interviews with 1,013 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from May 18 to May 20.  The full poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points.

  1. Here’s a conversation between Nancy and Barry that never happened but should have .
    Barry: Nancy , why do you think the people are up in arms about the A.C.A.?
    Nancy :I don’t know , we told them it was for their own good !
    Barry : Did you tell them about the increase in insurance premiums ?
    Nancy : No , we had to pass the bill in order to find out what’s in it , just like you said !
    Barry : What about the death panels ?
    Nancy : We couldn’t tell the people about that , could we ?
    Barry :And the I.R.S. enforcement measures ?
    Nancy : Same answer as before my messiah !
    Nancy then pipes up : Maybe we should have told the sheeple to buy stock in K-Y Jelly Inc.
    Barry :Oh baby , you keep talking like that and I’m going to get frisky , too bad your not Rahmbo .

  2. I would rather go back to what we had, take the fraud out of it and reign in the insurance companies. Costs do not have to be so high for medical or insurance.

  3. Healthcare reform: More taxes, less freedom, worse healthcare– thanks, Democrats!

  4. How in heck did it take so many of them so long to figure it out?

  5. Elections have consequences. Too bad so sad for those who voted for O. You get what you deserve.

  6. If this is supposed to be so d%# great why are the losers in the government opting out of it? If this is the new law of this pos why are the unions, muslims, and certain other groups exempt? This is another example of government corruption. Thanks to a corrupt supreme court the people were not legally represented.

  7. This anti-Obamacare lawsuit may be our only hope. It was the first PRIVATE lawsuit filed (on behalf of employers & individuals) on the same day (they had the lawsuit prepared, printed, & waiting) Obummer signed OC into law back on March 23, 2010, I believe was the date(?), & I have been following it ever since.

    The suit had already worked its way up to the Supreme Court but they opted not to hear it & sent it back to the Court of Appeals who should be making a decision sometime this year. Recent developments per Liberty Counsel’s RSS feed (non-profit legal group):
