New polls conducted in the first few days of 2017 show that a whopping majority of Americans are prepared and hopeful for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
The democrats have been working up a campaign to stymy Donald Trump’s promised repeal of the gargantuan legislation, coining the phrase “Make America Sick Again” in a lame attempt to garner some support. Unfortunately for them, a majority of Americans are ready for the ACA to go away.
“The national survey, conducted for a GOP political group, asked 1,000 likely voters if they agree that, ‘If Republicans repeal the Affordable Care Act, it will make America sick again.’ Overall, only 32.1 percent of voters agreed, including, at 57.1 percent, a majority of Democrats; 64.8 percent of Independents disagreed, as did 85.9 percent of Republicans.
“‘Nearly 70 percent of respondents support repeal of ACA with a realistic modest transition period and letting people keep their coverage while they wait for the new law to be in place,’ read the polling memo prepared for American Action Network, a political nonprofit organization aligned with House Republican leaders. Even Democrats support this by a [48 percent to 43 percent] margin. Additionally, respondents disagree with the Democratic claim that if Republicans repeal ACA that it will make America sick again.
“The poll was conducted Jan. 3-5 by Greg Strimple and Brooks Kochbar of GS Strategy Group. The self-identified political affiliation of the respondents broke down as 36.4 percent Democrat; 34.5 percent Republican; 24.2 percent independent. The margin of error was 3.1 percentage points. American Action Network offered the Washington Examiner a sneak peek at the new survey.”
Once again, the divergence of President Obama’s agenda and the will of We The People is on full display.
