Default Fox News poll: 54% oppose Obamacare replacement

Fox News poll: 54% oppose Obamacare replacement

Quote:
March 16, 2017

A Fox News poll shows 54 percent of registered voters oppose the American Health Care Act, the Republican's plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. The AHCA, which was unveiled last week by Republicans in the House of Representatives, is favored by 34 percent, compared to 54 percent who oppose the proposed bill. When asked why they oppose the AHCA, 67 percent said it was because the Republican plan makes too many changes to Obamacare, compared to 21 percent who said it does not make enough changes.

Interesting how extreme lefties denounce FOX unless it presents a poll result they like.

Sadly, this one doesn't.

Americans don't oppose repeal and replace, they oppose the replacement part. But at least, unlike the "pass it so we can read it ACA bill of Obamacare" we are getting to see that sect of sausage being made.

The arguments are clearly posted in the headlines of both the trusted media ad the fakers. Congress is sure on repeal. It is the replacement bill in which we find disagreement. And it is causing many to revert back to the security of what exists.

According to Rasmussen, the highest level of support for the mandate was 44%. Now it is 32% which is less then the percentage of Democratic party voters.

To wit;

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that in terms of reforming health care, 62% of Likely U.S. Voters feel it is more important to reduce the cost of care. That’s up from a previous high of 59% in January of last year. Thirty-four percent (34%) still place more importance on making sure that everyone has health insurance, but that’s a new low. Thirty-six percent (36%) continue to believe, however, that the government should require every American to buy or obtain health insurance. Fifty percent (50%) oppose Obamacare’s health insurance mandate, while 14% are undecided.

Support for the individual mandate in regular surveys over the last several years has run from a high of 44% in November 2014 to a low of 32% in October of the following year.

This is why Senator Rand Paul and his Freedom caucus oppose the current ACA bill. But they clearly support repeal. And this group has a significant following of support from the people. Who at one time supported repeal at 56%.

Repeal is inevitable. With what it is replaced is a matter of serious contention. And the Obamacare Lite presented so far, is unpalatable for most conservatives. Including conservative Democrats. How the Congress responds to these objections will determine who buys those one way tickets home.

That's an interesting poll considering the following analysis by EPI.

Quote:
Costs will rise and coverage will fall under the AHCA
Costs will rise and coverage will fall under the AHCA | Economic Policy Institute


While the CBO predicted lower costs for AHCA policies it was because the benefits are not equal when compared to the ACA. Of course it "costs less" to not provide coverage but when comparable benefits are used as the basis for the cost of insurance the rates are going to skyrocket under the AHCA while the number of people covered dramatically decreases and the benefits for those that are covered are dramatically reduced creating far higher out of pocket expenses.

As Republicans scramble in the House to get enough votes to pass the AHCA there's talk of eliminating the penalty for not continuously maintain insurance, that's a far greater cost than the penalty under Obamacare, and if that happens the insurance companies are going to have to dramatically increase the rates because people will literally wait until they have a serious illness, costing the insurance companies a metric butt-load of money, before they sign-up for insurance.

The AHCA is basically failing on all fronts from the perspective of the typical American. The only people that like it are Republicans that have a health care policy of "Don't get sick and if you get sick die quickly" based upon historic agenda of "Do everything you can for the wealthy and screw the poor and middle class."

BTW - In 2016 the cost of health care only increased by 5% although the insurance premiums increased nationwide by over 20%. The increased insurance premiums were a result of the Republicans in Congress not providing the payment of 80% of the previously anticipated losses for the insurance companies during the first three years that was included in the ACA. Republicans only provided a 12% payment and the insurance companies had to make up the difference with higher rates.

I never bought into this "repeal & replace" oxymoron. All that needs to be done is repeal and put healthcare on a free market basis with competition across state lines. I don't want the government controlling healthcare. Just look how bad the government run VA is.
