To no one’s surprise, a new poll has found that a whopping 60 percent of the American people need “more information to understand Obamacare,” while more than 50 percent of that 60 percent oppose Obamacare, period.
There has never been this sort of one-sided data on a national law in the history of the United States.
Meanwhile, the so-called healthcare exchanges are scheduled to open in less than two weeks. Seven million uninsured Americans will be mandated to carry coverage by the end of March, 2014, while the recent Washington Post/ABC News poll reports 62 percent of that seven million have no idea about these changes.
In the poll, 1,004 adults were asked questions about Obamacare from September 15-17. Fifty-two percent adamantly oppose the Affordable Care Act while 55 percent disapprove of President Obama’s methods of implementing the highly unpopular law.
Again, more than half those opposed to the law actually support shutting down portions of the federal government to stop it.
The House did indeed vote Friday to defund Obamacare while allowing other federal agencies to remain open avoiding a full shutdown when the new fiscal year begins October first.
October first is the day the so-called exchanges will open to a clueless mass it is intended to help.
The Washington Post/ABC News poll matches the uncertainty that other polls have shown that Americans have about the Affordable Care Act.
Another poll, the Fox News poll published Tuesday, said an incredible 68 percent of voters are deeply concerned about their personal healthcare as the changes loom with virtually no real information provided by the government to individuals.
In a third poll conducted by Pew Research/USA, Americans said they had no idea how the law will affect their families with a vast majority disapproving of the law.
The White House‘s response?
The confusion is “understandable” since specific information will not be available until open-enrollment begins October first, according to The Washington Post.
The bill was signed into law more than three-years ago.
