Full repeal of Obamacare is only controversial among the elite media and overly cautious Washington insiders. Americans – especially likely voters – favor full repeal of law, and have done so since it was passed more than two years ago. In fact, only once has Rasmussen found support for repeal among likely voters dipping below 50%.
The most recent polling from Rasmussen found 55% of likely voters favor repeal while just 36% oppose. An NBC News / WSJ poll found just 36% of adults thought the law was a good idea. A separate Quinnipiac poll found 51% of likely voters said Congress should try to repeal the law. And a FoxNews poll found only 27% of registered voters wanted the Supreme Court to uphold the law.
It is worth remembering that after Obamacare became law, one prominent Senator tried to dissuade his fellow Republicans from focusing on the law because of the political optics. As it turned out the 2010 election was a referendum on the law. If Republicans would have shied away from the fight on Obamacare – which now seems improbable – they may have not regained control of the House.
All too often, you’ll hear the words “adult” or “grownup” thrown around in an effort to discourage principled conservatives, but the lesson here is simple, and so is the message: the unworkable law cannot be saved so it must be repealed. That message can be applied to the experiment that is President Obama’s vision for America: it was unworkable from the start, it cannot be salvaged and it must not be extended for another four years!
