Poll: 6 in 10 Americans Oppose Partial Repeal Of Obamacare
House Republicans are backtracking on their promise to fully repeal Obamacare and instead are proposing a partial repeal of the so-called Affordable Care Act — a move most Americans oppose.
The Daily Signal has the details:
According to a new national survey conducted by The Heritage Foundation, a majority of Americans (60 percent) oppose a partial repeal of the law that would leave the tax increases in place. More Americans said they would oppose “Congress repealing Obamacare but leaving intact the tax increases included in the law” than those that actually oppose the law in its entirety.
The bill falls far short of Republicans’ promise to use reconciliation to fully repeal the law. Grassroots advocacy groups like Heritage Action are asking members of Congress to use reconciliation to fully repeal Obamacare.
The new survey is consistent with past polling conducted under the American Perceptions Initiative, a project of The Heritage Foundation’s communications department. Prior to the Supreme Court’s decision in King v. Burwell, a majority of Americans (61 percent) agreed it was appropriate for Congress to use the same process to repeal Obamacare that was used to pass it.
Americans can’t afford cancelled health-insurance policies; skyrocketing premiums; and stymied access to healthcare because of Obamacare regulations. It’s time to fully repeal the law once and for all!
