Americans are still not pleased with the Affordable Care Act, according to a poll released Monday by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press.
“Public views of the 2010 health care law have changed little over the past several months,” the study says, showing that as it sits now, 55 percent of Americans still disapprove of the ACA. That is actually a 2 percentage-point increase in disapproval since September, before the law was fully launched.
But despite the overall displeasure with the law, Americans are more likely to believe “major provisions” of the ACA are here to stay than believe such provisions will be repealed, according to Pew.
Pew also dug into why, exactly, so many Americans disagree with the new health care law. According to the polling, 80 percent of those who disapprove of the law say that “too much government involvement” in their health care is the primary reason for their dissatisfaction.
