Obamacare Twice as Likely to Hurt Americans than Help

A rising number of Americans are claiming that Obamacare has negatively impacted their health insurance policies.

Only 14 percent claim they have been helped by Obamacare, while more than twice as many (35 percent) say they have been hurt by it, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll release Monday.

“Among voters who say their health insurance has been changed by the law, 17% say they have been helped, but 66% report being hurt by it.

A majority of voters (55%) still views the health care law unfavorably, while 39% share a favorable opinion of it. This includes 38% with a Very Unfavorable view versus 16% with a Very Favorable one. Negative opinions of the law fell to a recent low of 50% two weeks ago.”

On Monday, Former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told CNN that members of Congress were “very forthright with the American public” when they wrote the health care law.

Obamacare is about about having affordable coverage, and helping people who do not have coverage to get it, Sebelius explained.

By these standards the legislation has failed. Obamacare is hurting individuals who already have health insurance policies (goal number one) and has fallen drastically short of its projected enrollment numbers (goal number two).

The majority of Americans polled (60 percent) believe the government’s monopolization of the health care industry will only stifle free market competition and exacerbate costs.
