Americans Divided Over Repealing Obamacare

Americans are evenly divided about whether the Affordable Care Act should be repealed, according to a Bankrate.com report. This deadlock among Americans (46% on both sides of the issue) mirrors the divisions in Congress. Americans’ opinions of Obamacare differ greatly with age. Americans 18 to 29 are most likely to be uninsured (22%). They also respond most favorably to Obamacare, with 51% against repealing it. Americans 65 and older are the least likely to be uninsured (3%) and the most likely to object to Obamacare, with only 32% against repeal.

Sixty-four percent of rural residents would vote to repeal Obamacare versus 31% of urban residents and 48% of suburban residents. The Midwest is most in favor of repealing Obamacare (55%) while the Northeast is most in favor of keeping it (just 38% would vote to repeal). Not surprisingly, 74% of Democrats would vote to keep Obamacare and 79% of Republicans would vote to repeal. Independents sided with repealing, 49% to 41%.

Thirty-one percent of Americans say they are more negative about the Affordable Care Act compared to 12 months ago while 11% say they are feeling more positive. Upper-middle-income households (annual income $75,000 and up) are the most likely to feel worse about their health insurance situation compared to  year ago. Twenty-five percent say it’s harder to handle medical expenses while 75% say it is easier). For more information, visit http://www.bankrate.com/finance/insurance/health-insurance-charts-1013.aspx
