CBS/NYT Poll Finds Only 15% of Insured Americans Think Obamacare Will Help ThemTopics: Political News and commentaries
Turns out Americans ren't as stupid as the Obama administration thinks they are.
Via CBS News:
Skepticism about the health care law extends to both insured and uninsured Americans, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll. Both groups disapprove of the law overall, and while the uninsured are more positive about the law's personal impact than those with insurance, more still think the law will hurt rather than help them. CBS News and The New York Times interviewed 702 adults who do not have health insurance for this poll.No problem though, Valerie Jarrett has deployed their "best salesperson" - and that'll be Moochie:
Just 15 percent of insured Americans think the health care law will help them personally, but that number rises to 33 percent among the uninsured. Still, more uninsured Americans think the health care law will hurt them (37 percent). Thirty-two percent of insured Americans say it'll hurt them. Overall, 46 percent feel it will have no effect (49 percent of insured Americans, 27 percent of uninsured).
Views are mixed on the impact the health care law will have on the nation's health care system. A third of uninsured Americans think the law will improve the health care system, but just as many say it will make the system worse. Insured Americans are not especially optimistic either: 37 percent think it will improve the health care system, 39 percent say it'll make it worse.
[...] "The first lady is the best salesperson" for the White House, senior adviser Valerie Jarrett told POLITICO. She's getting involved now, Jarrett said, because she's the right person to convey the message of the moment: that the uninsured -- especially young people and minorities -- should look for insurance on exchanges and that those with insurance are already feeling the benefits of the law.Ugh ... lots of luck with that.
