From Dana Blanton, "Fox News Poll: Majority calls implementation of ObamaCare 'a joke'."
Majorities of Americans think the new health care law is going to increase their medical costs and their taxes -- and add to the federal deficit as well. Those are some of the reasons why voters say -- by a two-to-one margin -- that Congress should keep working on the law.The law needs to be repealed. It should be a top priority of the Republicans, along with Benghazi and the IRS, as I've noted previously.
A Fox News national poll released Thursday also asks voters about how they think Obamacare is being carried out: 31 percent say “it’s going fine,” yet a 57-percent majority feels “it’s a joke.”
Republicans are more than three times as likely to say it’s a joke (87 percent vs. 25 percent). Still, a quarter of Democrats agree.
Nine times as many Democrats as Republicans say implementation of Obamacare is going fine (63 percent vs. 7 percent).
Overall, 63 percent of voters think the 2010 health care law needs to be changed and Congress should keep at it. That’s up from 58 percent who felt that way in July 2012. On the other hand, 31 percent say the law is the law and Congress should “move on” to other issues.
It's 15 months until the 2014 midterms. That's not that far off and I expect public opinion on this monstrosity to continue to deteriorate.
I'll have more on this, as always.
