Public Opinion on the Affordable Care Act

As implementation of the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) ramps up, public opinion remains deeply divided over the law. Nearly half of Americans say the law will increase the cost of their health insurance, and twice as many say the Affordable Care Act will reduce access to medical benefits rather than increase it, according to a new bipartisan national poll conducted by The Morning Consult from May 22 to May 26, 2013.
