Americans are already seeing their healthcare premiums skyrocket, despite President Obama saying his healthcare legislation would make them go down. A new Rasmussen Report shows the vast majority of Americans don't believe ObamaCare will cost as little as promised.

Voters are narrowly divided in their views of President Obama’s national health care law, but a sizable majority thinks the law is likely to cost taxpayers more than has been officially estimated.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters have a favorable impression of the health care law, while 49% view it unfavorably. This includes 16% with a Very Favorable opinion and 35% with a Very Unfavorable one.

Remember, $268 billion in new ObamaCare taxes hit on January 1 no matter what happens with the fiscal cliff.
