Polls Show Most Americans Against ObamaCare
So it should be a no-brainer that Nationalized and Rationed Healthcare - also referred to as OabmaCare - is something a majority of Americans are against.
From the Zogby poll organization:
"By a 50-42 margin, Americans oppose the House of Representatives' bill introduced July 14," said S. Ward Casscells, M.D., vice president of external affairs and public policy and the John Edward Tyson Distinguished Professor in Cardiology at the UT Health Science Center at Houston.
According to the survey, which was conducted by Zogby International, most Americans are unwilling to pay higher taxes and instead favor more innovative approaches that would use the savings from improving care and curtailing waste and fraud to fund health care for the uninsured.
Key survey findings included that 84 percent of those who are currently insured are satisfied with their health care. For those without insurance, only 46 percent had some level of satisfaction with their health care. Almost 80 percent agreed that rising healthcare costs are hurting American businesses.
More than eight in 10 Americans questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released Thursday said they're satisfied with the quality of health care they receive.
And nearly three out of four said they're happy with their overall health care coverage.
But satisfaction drops to 52 percent when it comes to the amount people pay for their health care[.]
Matt Towery's polling company releases the following data. Townhall:
Consider the response to the question, "What is your opinion of the proposed government-run healthcare program which is currently a part of the U.S. House of Representatives overall healthcare legislation?" Thirty-seven percent of respondents said they favored it, while 52 percent said they were opposed, with 11 percent undecided.
If you want to know why this healthcare proposal is a loser, you need go no further than to the next question we asked. "What level of trust do you have in the federal government's ability to provide and administer an efficient and effective healthcare program?" Only 26 percent said they trust the government to do so. That response is staggering.
ObamaCare, The Cost-Cutting Delusion. Forbes. Read it.
Congressional Budget Office Director Douglas W. Elmendorf, testifying before the Senate Budget Committee on ObamaCare said the following. US News:
"the federal budget is on an unsustainable path — meaning that federal debt will continue to grow much faster than the economy over the long run."
Elmendorf said that solving the budget crisis would "require increasing revenues significantly as a percentage of gross domestic product (GDP), decreasing projected spending sharply, or some combination of the two."
Now, as usual - they are so predictable - The Left wants nothing to do with polls when polls show the opposite of what The Left wants.
Lib Hypocrisy is so easy to spot. Like a big yellow spot sitting in otherwise completely white snow.
