I’ll bet that those in favor of Obamacare didn’t receive an 80 percent increase notice for their health care premiums for 2017.
Via NY Post: Barely a quarter of Americans want ObamaCare completely dismantled, while nearly half want it kept as is — or even expanded, pollsters said Thursday.
In a post-election poll commissioned by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation, 26 percent of respondents said they want all of the Affordable Care Act repealed. Pollsters found that 19 percent of those surveyed said they like the status quo, and 30 percent want ObamaCare expanded.
President-elect Donald Trump — who spent the campaign trashing ObamaCare and promising to repeal it — has already backtracked on that pledge.
Trump now says he wants to keep at least two major ObamaCare provisions — allowing children to remain on a parent’s plan until age 26, and barring insurers from denying coverage based on pre-existing conditions.
That approach seems to match with 17 percent of poll respondents, who want ObamaCare scaled back but not thrown out entirely.
Republican respondents, at a 52 percent clip, were strongly in favor of killing ObamaCare altogether, this poll found. But even that’s a shift down from 69 percent of GOP backers who said a month ago they wanted all of ObamaCare trashed.
This poll was conducted between Nov. 15 and 21 with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
