The latest bit of bad news for the law:
A record number of voters want the 2010 Affordable Care Act repealed entirely, while sizable majorities say they are worried about their health care under the new law and expect their medical costs will go up, according to a new Fox News poll. The poll, released Wednesday, finds that 58 percent of voters favor repealing all (39 percent) or some (19 percent) of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement.More from the poll: "The 39 percent who want to repeal the health care law entirely is a record high, up from 30 percent who felt that way in March 2013." This on the heels of a report Tuesday saying a "top administration aide in charge of implementing Obamacare said on Tuesday that he would be 'surprised' if it starts perfectly."
Combined with the recent bad news surrounding the implementation -- skyrocketing premiums, its principal author warning of a "trainwreck," fundraising scandals involving my former governor, and an administration official hoping the rollout isn't a "third-world experience" -- it's tough to see how they get enough young, healthy people signed up. Without whom it has no chance of surviving.
This joy goes live in just over three months.
