I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Majority Of Americans Continue To Support Repeal Of Health Care Reform Law

More than a month after passage, ObamaCare remains incredibly unpopular with the American public:

Support for repeal of the recently-passed national health care plan remains strong as most voters believe the law will increase the cost of care, hurt quality and push the federal budget deficit even higher.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 58% of likely voters nationwide favor repeal, while 38% are opposed. Those figures are little changed from a week ago and include 47% who Strongly Favor repeal. Twenty-nine percent (29%) Strongly Oppose the repeal effort.

Support for repeal is proving to be just as consistent as opposition to the plan before it was passed into law. Over the past five weeks since Congress passed the measure, support for repeal has remained in a very narrow range from a low of 54% to a high of 58%.

Sixty percent (60%) of voters nationwide believe the new law will increase the federal budget deficit, while just 19% say it will reduce the deficit.

Fifty-seven percent (57%) think the law will increase the cost of health care, while 18% believe it will reduce costs.

Fifty-one percent (51%) expect the quality of care to decline, while 24% predict it will get better.

Obama’s magic doesn’t seem to be working.
