Uninsured Opposition to Obamacare Reaches All Time High

Uninsured Opposition to Obamacare Reaches All Time High

Americans without health insurance remain opposed to the Affordable Care Act better known as Obamacare. According to a Kaiser Family Foundation monthly health tracking poll, 56 percent of the uninsured view the act unfavorably, which is all time high. The percentage of uninsured with a positive view reached its lowest point since the tracking poll began in March 2010. Efforts by the administration to reach out to the uninsured to sign up for the new health care apparently aren't working as planned either. According to polling, just 24 percent of the uninsured population were able to cite March 31st as the deadline. 63 percent of uninsured respondents said they either knew nothing at all or only a little about the new health care marketplaces. Among those who are uninsured or purchase their own insurance, the key demographic for the act to work, 54 percent preferred the lower cost, more limited plans. Overall 47 percent of respondents view the health law unfavorably and just 35 percent had a favorable opinion.
