NYT/CBS Poll Shows American's Don't Like ObamaCare

Surprise, Surprise: Americans don’t want ObamaCare.
In other news: Water is wet.
The New York Times and CBS News poll released today shows that more than two-thirds of Americans hope that the Supreme Court overturns at least part of Obama’s 2010 health care reform law. 41% want the entire law overturned, while 27% hope at least the individual made is overturned.
A lonely 24% of people polled nationwide want the entire law kept.
With the Supreme Court expected to end speculation and finally decide on the fate of the controversial reform later this month, these numbers really have not changed much since oral arguments were made. During the arguments, team Obama’s side was not perceived to have done a very good job at convincing the justices that the reform was Constitutional.
There was greater Republican opposition to the law than Democratic support. About two-thirds of Republicans in the recent survey said the entire law should be overturned, while 43 percent of Democrats said all of the law should be upheld.
More than 70 percent of independent voters said they wanted to see some or all of the law struck down, with a majority saying they hoped to see the whole law overturned. Twenty-two percent of independents said they hoped the entire law would survive.
Responses varied by education, too. Nearly a third of respondents with a college education said they would like to see the law upheld, compared with about 20 percent of those without a college degree.”
Well, that last paragraph goes to show that an education does not necessarily make you smart, but it is promising to see such discontent with the unconstitutional reform. Unfortunately for us, we don’t decide, and the Supreme Court’s level of care about public opinion remains at a steady ‘zero.’
