By a margin of almost 4 to 1, voters say they’d be more, rather than less, apt to support a member of Congress who votes to stop one of the most egregious aspects of Obamacare—which is also one of the parts that’s propping it up.
Scoring by the nonpartisan Center for Health and Economy finds that, compared to Obamacare, the 2017 Project’s “Winning Alternative to Obamacare” would save $1.13 trillion in federal spending, reduce premiums, increase access to doctors, and lead to 6 million more people having private health insurance.
A national poll by McLaughlin & Associates (including 38% Democrats and 31% Republicans) finds that Americans overwhelmingly oppose Obamacare’s bailout provision for insurance companies and support the suspension of Obamacare’s individual mandate.
Under a winning alternative, costs would drop, liberty would be secured, and any American who wants to buy health insurance would be able to do so.
A survey sent to roughly 80 percent of physicians involved in active practice, and receiving over 20,000 responses, finds that doctors give Obamacare a dismal 1.59 GPA—with 25 percent giving it an F and only 4 percent giving it an A.
A poll by McLaughlin & Associates finds that Americans overwhelmingly oppose Obamacare’s insurer bailout and are far more likely to support members of Congress who vote to stop it.
Obamacare forces all American taxpayers to subsidize abortion—yet another broken promise from President Obama and his congressional allies.
Politico finds that voters overwhelmingly prefer straight repeal to keeping Obamacare as is (44 to 17 percent), doesn’t even ask about an alternative, and then claims to have found “more evidence that most Americans don’t support repeal.”
Congress’s failure to kill the Export-Import Bank— “the lowest of low-hanging fruit in the sprawling tree of American political corruption”—is just the latest chapter in a long story of special-interest politics at the expense of the common good.
