- July 16, 2012

Americans Recognize That The Country Will Be “Worse Off” Financially As A Result Of ObamaCare. “On the other hand, the average American agrees with the argument that the ACA is going to cost money, and that taxpayers, businesses, and those who currently have insurance will end up being worse off -- at least financially -- as a result of the law.” (Frank Newport, “Health Care Law Helps Some, Hurts Others,” Gallup, 7/16/12)

A Majority Of Americans Think ObamaCare Will Make “Taxpayers, Businesses, Doctors, And Those Who Currently Have Health Insurance” Worse Off. “At the same time, Americans say the law will make things worse rather than better for taxpayers, businesses, doctors, and those who currently have health insurance.
