26% want Supreme Court to Uphold ObamaCare

CBS News Poll
 We have been seeing a lot in the news lately as the fate of ObamaCare is before the Supreme Court. Only 26% of those polled are in favor of keeping the entire law and 29% responding that they would be in favor if the individual mandate provision was overturned.

However it does seem that the majority of Americans think something should be done with the current health care system and 85% support requiring insurance companies to cover people with pre-existing health conditions. Of course this requirement would cost those with a clean bill of health to pay increased costs to subsidize those in poor health.

Notably, one-half of all Americans expect their personal health care costs to rise as the result of ObamaCare and one-third believe the quality of health care will decline.

  1. It’s inexcusable the amount of time and money that has been wasted trying to improve our insurance system over the last 4 years only to create something worse than before. It’s time to throw in the towel and start over with something that is not only fair to all but that is not forced upon us. The economy is more important than this and yet they ignore those problems because they spend all their time on this communist program.

  2. 'Of course this requirement would cost those with a clean bill of health to pay increased costs to subsidize those in poor health.'

    With the exception of the time when President Obama was elected, it appears as the ones being most subsidized were the shareholders of the insurane industry.;range=my;compare=;indicator=volume;charttype=area;crosshair=on;ohlcvalues=0;logscale=off;source=undefined;

    Obama gets blamed for wanting people to be able to have healthcare, when current status quo is really a system that is mathematically unsustainable. Republicans continue to give W and Cheney a pass for starting a very expensive war on misleading information they promoted.

    Every man, woman, and child in the US could have the same health insurance policy that members of congress enjoy for a ear, for less money than the Iraq War (transfer of wealth to Halliburton and Blackwater)costs the US a year.

    In reality this should not be about saving money, but rather saving lives.
