Obamacare: Majority of Americans still don't want it

Obamacare is still not wanted by most Americans. That is the result of a Gallup poll result released Monday which asked persons the question:

Do you generally approve or disapprove of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, signed into law by President Obama that restructured the U.S. healthcare system?

Fifty-one percent of Americans disapprove of the law while only 41 percent approve of the law.

The latest poll on the subject, conducted from Jan. 31 to Feb. 1, 2014, clearly reveals that even with many provisions made to the law, Americans still view the Affordable Care Act – or Obamacare – quite negatively.

Beyond this, the survey indicates that 64 percent believe the Affordable Care Act has had “no effect” on their family. Another 19 percent believe President Obama’s healthcare law has had a “harmful effect” on their family. These negative claims asserted by the survey are the same as they have been since February of 2012 – two years ago.

In Obama’s State of the Union Address last week, he again tried to sell Americans on the healthcare legislation – but the survey reveals that his plea had no impact.
