56% of Americans Favor Repeal of Obamacare
The week before the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments on the constitutionality of the individual mandate provision of President Obama’s healthcare takeover, American disapproval of the law has jumped. Fifty-six percent of likely voters want the law repealed, according to the latest Rasmussen report. Just 39% oppose repeal.
This jump also comes on the heels of a report from the CBO saying that taking into account the full cost of Obamacare once it is fully implemented, the law will actually cost double what the President and Democrats promised. This is because the original CBO score included the years before the law would fully take effect (2014) when the taxes started, but the costs did not. This gimmick made Obamacare appear to cost less than it really would. But the cats out of the bag now, and not only will Obamacare cost far more than advertised, but the taxes included in it to pay for its cost are higher as well, and more people will become uninsured because of the law than originally estimated.
All these broken promises – along with the individual mandate which forces Americans to purchase a government-approved product or else face a penalty – lead to one inevitable conclusion: Obamacare must go.
Americans need to mobilize and let the Supreme Court and the Obama Administration know that we found out what’s in the bill, and we like it even less. That is why Heritage Action is co-sponsoring a rally this Saturday (March 24th) to send the message that this law must go.
