Not only have doctors been fighting this regulation-riddled bill since 2009, the public is learning more and more all the time about how awful and unconstitutional this bill is. For those who did read the bill before it was passed, they knew it was bad from the beginning — it did not “have to be passed to see what’s in it”, as Pelosi said. This ObamaCare must be repealed in entirety and replaced with free-market solutions!!
A survey out this morning in USA Today highlights the growing opposition to ObamaCare across America:
“The health care overhaul that President Obama intended to be the signature achievement of his first term instead has become a significant problem in his bid for a second one, uniting Republicans in opposition and eroding his standing among independents.
“In a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll of the nation’s dozen top battleground states, a clear majority of registered voters call the bill’s passage ‘a bad thing’ and support its repeal if a Republican wins the White House in November. Two years after he signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act— and as the Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments about its constitutionality next month — the president has failed to convince most Americans that it was the right thing to do.
“‘Mandating that you have to buy the insurance rubs me the wrong way altogether,’ says Fred Harrison, 62, a horse trainer from York County, Pa., who was among those surveyed and supports repeal even though he likes some provisions of the law. ‘It should be my own choice.’”
The survey found that:
* “Health care ranks near the top of a list of concerns for advocates and critics of the law. Nationwide, it trails only the economy and the deficit as being the most critical issues facing the nation, rating a bit higher than unemployment and terrorism.”
* “Voters in swing states stand overwhelmingly on one side of the debate: Three of four voters, including a majority of Democrats and of liberals, say the law is unconstitutional.”
* “Eleven percent of voters in battleground states say the law has helped their families; 15% say it has hurt. Looking ahead, they predict by 42%-20% that the law will make things worse rather than better for their families.”
* “Opposition to the law is eroding Obama’s support among the middle-of-the-road voters both nominees will court this fall. Among independents, 35% say the law makes them less likely to support Obama, more than double the 16% who say it makes them more likely.”
*”Among independents who lean to the GOP, 54% say they are much less likely to support Obama as a result. Among independents who lean to the Democrats, 18% say they are much more likely to support him.”
With all its unconstitutional mandates, job-crushing tax hikes, and Medicare cuts, it’s no wonder the American people have so decisively rejected ObamaCare. That’s why House Republicans have pledged to fight every day to repeal the law, plank by plank if necessary. And, in the coming weeks, House Republicans will renew their assault on the job-crushing health care law.
