While the Obamacare website, Healthcare.gov continues to be an unworkable entity, a poll on Friday, outside of mainstream media polling, revealed that the majority of Americans want the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) defunded.
Contrary to the insistence by liberals, democrats, and left leaning news media alike, 79 percent of Americans want President Obama's Obamacare defunded based on a growing calculating poll done by Newsmax.
The question that Newsmax asked was, “Do you support the full repeal of President Obama’s health care plan Congress passed in 2010?”
The poll gathered 1,694,675 votes with 79 percent voting to repeal Obamacare, 16 percent to not repeal it all and 3 percent to just repeal parts of it.
In a related question of whether or not consumers agree with the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Obamacare law; 1.1 million or 82 percent disagreed with the Supreme Court’s decision while 17 percent agreed.
Many consumers are not aware but the White House and the Democrats in Congress in 2010 removed $500 billion dollars from Medicare to be used in the Obamacare plan.
Newsmax asked whether consumers whether that money should be put back into the Medicare fund.
With 1.1 million consumers participating, 88 percent voted to restore those benefits while only 11 percent said no.
In related news, the Daily Caller reported on Tuesday, that Ted Cruz’s office has written a memo that takes aim not only at the establishment politicians, and at who really was responsible for the government shutdown, but also second-guessing on the feasibility to defund Obamacare.
In the memo, Cruz said, “The defund plan produced tangible results that create both immediate and long-term benefits for the country and the conservative cause.”
“First, it intensified the nation’s focus on Obamacare. Second, it energized Americans by showing there are people in Washington willing to take real action to stop Obamacare. Third, it exposed, for all to see, the Democrats’ refusal to compromise out of blind devotion to their extreme liberal agenda. Lastly, it proved the need for Republicans to unite and stand firm together in their resolve to defeat Obamacare.”
[Editor's Note] Due to confusion, this poll is not a scientific poll. However, based on the results, it indicates straight forward questions and does cross political lines due to respondent answers.
