Surprise! More Say Obamacare Has Hurt Than Helped

If this is what Obama and his minions mean when they say Ocare “is working“, I’d hate to see the results if it was failing!

(Gallup) Although more provisions of the Affordable Care Act have taken effect over the past year, more Americans still say the law has hurt rather than helped them. Compared with early 2014, fewer Americans say it has had no effect, although this group is still in the majority, at 54%.

Americans overall are both more positive and more negative about the law’s effect on themselves and their families. Since the start of this year, the percentage saying the law has helped them has increased from 10% to 16%, while the percentage saying it has hurt them has also gone up, and by a similar amount, from 19% to 27%.

At the same time, overall attitudes about the law have stayed constant over the past year. Currently, 41% of Americans approve of the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as “Obamacare,” while 53% disapprove.

Broken down into partisan lines, obviously more Dems think it is helping, 27% yes – 15% no. Interestingly, 56% say it has had no effect. Good think we’ve heavily changed the health care and health insurance systems and spent gobs of money, along with giving Government even more control of our lives, eh?

For Republicans, 4% say helped, 40% hurt, 55% no effect.

What’s dangerous for Dems is Independents, of which 27% say hurt, 16% helped, and 53% no effect.

    Mark me down in the ‘hurt’ column.

    Last December my insurance premiums went up, co pays went up and, for the first time since I have worked here, I now have deductibles to pay. When we had our meeting about the changes in our health insurance it was told to us that these increases are a direct result O-Care. And, this is just the beginning as our health care plan is considered a “Cadillac” plan come 2016 something drastic will have to be done to cut costs.

    Scares me because I expect that come 2016 either our premiums will greatly increase or they will drop insurance all together. Hopefully between now and we’ll get enough people in office to repeal this abomination known as the ACA.

    gitarcarver, since Johnny doesn’t have any valid arguments on this topic, all he has is sarcasm & insult.

    Even if one believes that a centrally-operated command & control type of system is a good idea here, what the administration came up with is a cluster-hump of the first magnitude. If nothing else, it’s a huge barrel o’ pork for the insurance companies.
