The latest Rasmussen Report shows a majority of voters still favor the repeal of ObamaCare and believe their healthcare costs will increase, not decrease as a result of the law.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 55% of Likely U.S. Voters at least somewhat favor repeal of the health care law, while 36% are at least somewhat opposed. This includes 46% who Strongly Favor repeal versus 28% who are Strongly Opposed to it.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of voters now believe the cost of health care will go up under the new law, while just 19% expect those costs to go down. Sixteen percent (16%) think costs will stay about the same.

The number who believe the health care law will drive up costs has ranged from 50% to 61% over the past two years but has been in the low 50s since last October.

Fifty-five percent (55%) say the law also will increase the federal budget deficit, the highest level of skepticism since early last June.

The Supreme Court is set to rule in June as to whether ObamaCare is Constitutional, but in the meantime, take a look at how Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius took the advice of Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards over Supreme Court precedent when it came to the contraception mandate in ObamaCare.
