Default Americans Really Don't Want Trump To Sabotage Obamacare, Poll Finds

President Donald Trump seems to think the American public will blame Democrats for the consequences of the actions he’s taken to weaken the Affordable Care Act’s health insurance markets. A new poll suggests he’s wrong.

Seventy-one percent of Americans believe Trump should be doing all he can to make the health insurance exchanges work as well as possible, according to a survey conducted earlier this month by the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation. This is consistent with the foundation’s previous survey findings.

Trump has been explicit about his motives for undermining the Affordable Care Act, including by stopping payment of billions of dollars the federal government owes to health insurance companies that serve the poorest exchange enrollees.

He sees sabotaging Obamacare as a means to force congressional Democrats to help revive the GOP’s failed effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act. He’s counting on voters to blame chaos in the insurance market on the party that originally created the law and not on his administration, which is currently in charge of enforcing it.

Here’s how Trump put it in July, when he was much more direct about his intentions: “I’ve been saying for a long time: Let Obamacare fail and then everybody is going to have to come together and fix it and come up with a new plan and a plan that’s really good for the people with much lower premiums, much lower costs, and much better protection.”

“I think we’re probably in that position where we’ll just let Obamacare fail,” he added at the time. “We’re not going to own it. I’m not going to own it. I can tell you, the Republicans are not going to own it. We’ll let Obamacare fail and then the Democrats are going to come to us, and they’re going to say, ‘How do we fix it? How do we fix it? Or how do we come up with a new plan?’”

Just 21 percent of those polled by the Kaiser Family Foundation agreed with that tactic and think Trump should make the law fail in order to increase pressure on Congress to repeal and replace it.

That would make Trump’s sabotage of the Affordable Care Act even less popular than he is. The president’s current approval rating is 39 percent and his disapproval rating is 56 percent, according to HuffPost Pollster.

Considering Democrats passed ObamaCare without ONE DAY with majority support, I find it amazing they run to the polls NOW...

Polls matter when they are advantageous to us! When they're not, they can go f*ck themselves!!!!...

The only Americans who don't want Obama care sabotaged are the free loaders who did not want to have to pay for health insurance, and most of them are Democrats on the public dole.

We are sick and tired of the left using things like free health insurance to buy votes with. People have to actually pay for all you Democrats who refuse to work, and live on the dole.

Why do you even have health insurance? If you really believed the craziness you spew you would pay per service.

Even at $30K / yr. if I needed just one service that required hospitalization, I would be a fool to go with out it.

The charges racked up in the medical racket are the highest form of gouging in all of our economy. The wealth at the top of the medical industry in our country is outrageous. Just look at the monuments they have built in their own names.. The medical profession is nearly guilty of out right robbery of the people they serve.

So you realize your healthcare might cost more than you pay in insurance, yet you want to pay even less and have others pick up the slack? Freeloader.

My your full of sh1t more than usual this morning.

Do I have to explain the idiotic statement you make here?

At $30K/yr. you have the gall to call me a freeloader. My bet is the US Government picks up your tab, at my expense. That makes you the freeloader.

Seriously, 300 is right. Only the terminally lazy or those who support the terminally lazy support ObamaCare. And yes, the vast majority of 'em are libs.

The insanity of these 2 comments is unreal.

Insurance is a hedge against the risk of substantial expense. Medical insurance is no different absent Federal government meddling. Obamacare has a different agenda, redistribution of health insurance dollars to subsidize vote buying. Under Obamacare the individual is forced to pay for mitigation of risks they will never incur, except of course if you are deemed worthy of receiving free health insurance.
