Has Confusion About The ACA Led To The Overall Dislike Of Obamacare?

Has Confusion About The ACA Led To The Overall Dislike Of Obamacare?The overwhelming results of a recent poll regarding the Affordable Care Act and healthcare reform conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation showed that 63% of all Americans do not understand how Obamacare works. The consumers that participated in the poll are not sure whether health insurance plans are government sponsored or privately owned and operated. Additionally, over 50% of US consumers have an unfavorable opinion of the ACA. For all intents and purposes, Obamacare has reached the lowest level of popularity in its history.

It’s ironic that so many people dislike Obamacare when you consider that the number of Americans that are still uninsured is at the lowest level ever. Despite this statistic, the consensus is that Obamacare will never be popular among American consumers. Another interesting statistic shows that 2/3 of all American women now have access to free birth control. According to the most recent Gallup Poll, the available data shows that some of the ACA’s goals have been achieved. But Obamacare remains unpopular.

There are more Americans who feel that the new healthcare laws have not helped them. In fact, many feel that Obamacare has done more damage than good. Furthermore, the same consumers are of the opinion will make health care worse – not better – over the long run. In addition to these consumer statistics, there are some interesting statistics where political parties are concerned as well. Here is a breakdown according to political affiliation:

  Make things better No difference Make things worse
  % % %
Democrats 66 12 21
Independents 32 20 42
Republicans 6 11 80
