Americans Still Want Obamacare Perks

Although views of Obamacare remain negative (46% have an unfavorable opinion; 40% say they favor the law) Americans want Congress to act if the Supreme Court invalidates the law’s insurance subsidies, according to a new Kaiser Family Foundation poll.

“If the Supreme Court rules that financial assistance is only available in states with state-run marketplaces, nearly two-thirds of the public says that Congress should take action so that people in all states can be eligible for financial help to purchase health insurance. Majorities of Democrats and independents say they would support Congressional action, while Republicans are more divided. And, although the Supreme Court’s decision would have significant implications for many people in states using the federal exchange, their views are similar to those of people living in states with their own marketplace.”
