Rasmussen: Majority of Americans Expect Obamacare To Make Healthcare System WorseTopics: Political News and commentaries
We're a long way from knowing the true impact of Obamacare on our nation's healthcare, but one thing's certain, most Americans are satisfied with the healthcare they already have and they aren't optimistic about what they'll be getting under Obamacare.
Voters remain overwhelmingly positive about the health care they receive but are less enthusiastic about the overall health care system. But just over half also continue to believe the health care system will get worse under the new national health care law.More here.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 82% of Likely U.S. Voters rate the overall quality of the health care they now receive as good or excellent. Just four percent (4%) describe that health care as poor.
Only 37%, however, rate the U.S. health care system itself as good or excellent. Thirty percent (30%) view the system as poor.
These views have changed little in the past several months. But for the second month in a row, 30% of voters think the health care system is likely to get better as a result of Obamacare. That's up eight points from August and the most positive view to date. But most voters (52%) still believe the system will get worse under the new law, while six percent (6%) expect it to stay about the same. Twelve percent (12%) are undecided.
Seventy-eight percent (78%) of voters with health insurance rate their current coverage as good or excellent, also consistent with past surveying. Only four percent (4%) regard their health insurance coverage as poor.
I have to believe that the 12% that are undecided are incapable of understanding the question. As for the 30% that think the healthcare system is going to get better under Obamacare, lots of luck with that ... they're soon to find out how that works out for them.
