A new Rasmussen Reports indicates some alarming results about the general public and Obama.Care.

About 1/3 of voters say the PPACA healthcare law has negatively impacted them.

16% view the law favorably while 56% view it unfavorably.

No indications about all the delays and changes (Do people even know?)

However, many answers were strangely along party lines !!!

Blind faith?

More in the article....



One-in-three U.S. voters now says his or her health insurance coverage has changed as a result of Obamacare, and the same number say the new national health care law had a negative personal impact on them.

Forty percent (40%) of Likely U.S. Voters have at least a somewhat favorable opinion of the health care law, while 56% regard it unfavorably, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. This includes 16% who view the law Very Favorably and 41% who have a Very Unfavorable opinion of it. (To see survey question wording, click here )

I'm not sure about percentages, but I have suspicions about the people who favor the ACA. I would be willing to bet that a greater percentage of them fall into the Medicaid group.

More and more people are living at or below poverty level in our country, and are thankful for all the extra help they can get; be it foodstamps, housing, education, income subsidies, WIC, insurance, etc.

Medicaid gives more complete coverage than Medicare, so I not only spent MY life working for inferior health care coverage, I get to pay for THEIR superior coverage.

Makes me wish I was a kid again. At least I'd get two free meals a day in school.

Good point about Medicaid.

Could be people that have jobs that pay the insurance too.

Pair that with policies that actively kill jobs while ramping up unemployment benefits and you get a huge mass of people who get to live their lives on government paid for vacation with excellent free benefits that will always vote (D).

I remember when low income housing was being built back in the 60's ,my thought was they government had a long term plan in mind to make the populous dependent. I was still a teenager, but I reasoned that nobody is going to bite the hand that feeds them.

When foodstamps came along, the people getting them ate much better than the working folks did, and they gave people enough money to get by on; all for just filling out a few papers!
And the more kids you had, the better your life was!

Then Reagen came along and ended the 'lifetime' Welfare system. Along came the Dems and opened up SSI. If you run out of Welfare time, they help you switch over to SSI. I know FAR too many people collecting SSI that are perfectly capable ( some, even more so) of working for a living.
Why should they? They government has bred a sense of entitlement into the majority of our population, and I missed the boat! (By choice; I don't want the damn phone.
) That's right; they even get free phone service!
Only problem is, if it seems to good to be true, it probably isn't true.

People have gone on the government dole for 'free' stuff. And it has cost Americans their freedom. Once people give up their freedom, it's unlikely they'll ever get it back. Everybody thinks America is still a nation of freedom. I think that train left the station many decades ago.

But what do I know? I'm just an old woman looking back on life and babbling.

The SSI doesn't seem to really care what peoples actual income is. Investigations are far and few between. I work with some people who make $25 plus an hour, but they falsify documents in order to take advantage of GOV programs. It's like a plague, it has been slowly but surely creeping its way up and around the citizens of the US. Obamacare is just the next step whether they admit it or not.

Hey, at this point, that's all they have!

Are they aware that the ACA passed with only Democrat votes?

Excellent piece of spin, do you work for Fox?

About 1/3 of voters say their insurance has changed not "negatively impacted them".

Thirty-three percent (33%) now say their insurance coverage has changed because of the new law


40% view it favorably not 16%

Forty percent (40%) of Likely U.S. Voters have at least a somewhat favorable opinion of the health care law





However, many answers were strangely along party lines !!!

That statement, at least, is true.

Most Democrats (58%) and a plurality (49%) of unaffiliateds say the law has had no impact on them.



Most voters who consider themselves part of the Tea Party movement (62%) say they’ve been personally hurt by Obamacare. A majority of those not in the grassroots movement (54%) say the law has had no impact on them personally.

What ever derogatory comment you might make this is not the new Romney care.

This baby is Obama's! He owns it.

40% have a somewhat favorable opinion. That's quite a glowing report.

Of course. The President has delayed implementation of the ACA, it has yet to impact most people..... most people were already insured, and that would be the groups that have yet to feel the effects of the ACA.... because Obama has decreed that the law doesn't affect them yet, until after the 2014 elections, I'm guessing?

Hmmm.

How silly (from the article)


Thirty-three percent (33%) now say their insurance coverage has changed because of the new law, up a point from January and the highest finding since last July.

Just 14% of all voters now say they personally have been helped by the law, down from 16% in January. Thirty-three percent (33%) say they have been hurt by the law, up from 29% earlier this year and the highest negative rating since April 2013.

Fifty percent (50%) say it has had no impact on them.

It's important for people to go to and read the links. If it is an obscure website presents unusual information, a check elsewhere on presented information is useful to debunk claims. I recall a couple of days ago reading this ATS thread. The claims seemed pretty unusual for the article in that OP, and checking elsewhere I found much of it to be untrue. Of course, unlike that offending article, this article is basically the original source and it is being presented by the OP in a slightly twisted way. Here's what the article says in summary:

(Sample based on target) 1000 Likely U.S. Voters.
?? are expected results not listed by the article.
~ are inferred results.
(Opinion: do they like it?)
Favorable 40% (16% very, ~24% somewhat).
Unfavorable: 56% (41% very, ~14% somewhat).
Compared to past results, it's neither the highest nor lowest for either.
(Impact: did insurance change?)
33% say yes.
~66% say no or not sure.
Compared to past results, this is the highest 'yes' since July.
(Impact: helped or hurt?)
33% say hurt.
14% say helped.
50% say neither.
Compared to past results, hurt is highest since last April, while helped is down from January.

(Results by party)
Republicans
47% say hurt.
?? say helped.
?? say neither.
More likely to say insurance changed.
85% say unfavorable.
~14% say favorable or neither.

Democrats
19% say hurt.
~22% say helped.
58% say neither.
Less likely to say insurance changed.
~18% say unfavorable or neither.
71% say favorable.

Unaffiliated
35% say hurt.
~15% say helped.
49% say neither.
Less likely to say insurance changed.
66% say unfavorable.
~33% say favorable or neither.

(Special case: Tea Party)
62% of likely voters IDENTIFYING as Tea Party say they have been HURT by Obamacare.
54% of likely voters NOT IDENTIFYING as Tea Party say there has been NO IMPACT on them personally.

As the OP says:

16% view the law favorably

The OP is clearly wrong.

There are various other articles (with their own results) embedded within this one and stats which are not brought up by the OP. Regarding the special case, it implies that there were 66/74/82 (min/med/max) people of the 1000 surveyed who identified as members of the Tea Party (~4-8%). Because of their high rate of HURT claims, these Tea Party members are responsible then for 4-5% of the 33% of people claiming to be hurt by Obamacare. If we were to exclude the Tea Party as politically motivated outliers, the HURT claims would fall to 30-31% (sample size also decreases by doing this, making the percentage go up). This is probably a more accurate number, but still high.
