Let's dig a little deeper shall we?
A new AP poll finds that Americans who think the law should have done more outnumber those who think the government should stay out of health care by 2-to-1.
This does not imply that the so-called "reform" law should do more of what it was doing, but rather that it didn't go far enough (if at all) to actually reform the problems present in the system. The clues to this are further down:
The poll found that about four in 10 adults think the new law did not go far enough to change the health care system, regardless of whether they support the law, oppose it or remain neutral.
The AP poll was conducted by Stanford University with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Overall, 30 percent favored the legislation, while 40 percent opposed it, and another 30 percent remained neutral.
Those numbers are no endorsement for President Obama's plan...
Broad majorities of both the "get-outs" and "do-mores" said medical care, health insurance and prescription drugs cost too much. And most said the system should aim to increase the number of people with insurance and enable Americans to get the care they need, while improving quality.
The differences emerge when it comes to the means:
This is where Obamapologists get logically wrapped around the axle. They're so busy assuming that anyone opposed to Obamacare are hateful racists and/or social Darwinists that they fail to realize that people can share goals (more affordable, available, quality health care products and services and more affordable health insurance) while differing (sometimes significantly) on the approach to achieving these goals.
think the law should have done more too! I just think it should have done a different
set of things. I would have been favorable if it did anything that will actually reform the problems in the health care system.
When you couple this with the general level of ignorance among the American public about the economics of this issue, you may have people wanting or calling for or supporting things that they don't realize will end up being more harmful and even achieving the opposite of what they hoped for an intended.
