Health Care Reform Funding at Risk?

By on | No Comments

Question: The Health Reform law is very unpopular among voters. It looks like the Republicans could successfully block funding for health care reform. What do you think?

Answer:: On the one hand, public opposition to the health care reform law spiked to a record high in a new poll out today, on the other hand Americans don't necessarily want Republicans to spend time trying to dismantle it.

Fifty percent of Americans have unfavorable views of the law, according to a joint survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health. Opposition to the law jumped 9 percentage points from last month and is the highest since April, when Kaiser began asking the question every month.

At the same time, only 33 percent of respondents like the idea of defunding the legislation, and 62 percent disapprove.

Clearly, Republicans will have have to pick their targets carefully. Some items like the 1099 small business issue will be easy to change, but I think the health insurance exchanges are off limits and the individual mandate will probably get some tweaking at best (or worst depending on your POV)..
