    Exclamation Obamacare's More Popular than Ever!

    https://www.kff.org/health-reform/po...s-to-medicaid/



    A new tracking poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation finds the highest ever public approval rating for the Affordable Care Act since the organization began asking the question in 2010. According to the survey, 54 percent of the public view the embattled law favorably, while 42 percent hold an unfavorable view. The major shift in public approval for the ACA since Trump took office and set about chipping away at the law has mostly been driven by independents, 55 percent of whom currently approve of Obamacare.











    Furthermore, the survey found, health care is a top issue for voters headed into the 2018 midterm elections—particularly the rising cost of health care. Among registered voters in battlegrounds states, far more people said they wanted to hear candidates talk about health care costs than further attempts to repeal the ACA.

    The findings are likely to motivate the health care advocacy groups planning to target Republican lawmakers in 2018 races for their vote to repeal the ACA’s mandate, which is set to raise health insurance premiums nearly 20 percent per year for people in Obamacare’s individual market.



    The Trump administration and Republicans in Congress have repeatedly proposed deep cuts to Medicaid, and pushed a bill that ultimately failed that would have phased out the federally subsidized expansion of the program that currently covers millions of Americans.



    But a whopping 74 percent of Americans now hold a favorable view of Medicaid—including 40 percent who have a “very favorable” view—the KFF survey found. A majority of people across party lines say the program is “working well for most low-income people.”

    That's not to mention the fact that a good portion of those who do not have a favorable view of it still do not want to see it repealed.

    You mean the Republican Plan of letting the poor die in the streets is not popular?

    Who could have ever guessed?

    It is kind of funny (actually, quite annoying, really), that it needs a buffoon like Trump in the WH, for people to all of a sudden support his actions while in office.. from ACE, to gun control, etc. Nothing has changed, except people's mentality all of a sudden.
    If they were that 'smart' when it counts, that whole Trump mess would have had been avoided.. it's not like they weren't TOLD that he wants to take Obamacare away.. it's not like Obama has not repeatedly asked for reasonable gun control to protect lives.

    This is why we can't have nice things !
