After repeal scare, Obamacare has never been more popular
August 30, 2017, CBS News, Walecia Konrad- Underscoring the adage that you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s (almost) gone, the popularity of Obamacare is surging.
Only weeks after Republicans in Congress failed to repeal the landmark health reform law, 52 percent of respondents hold a favorable view of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), according to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation August poll. That’s up 10 percentage points since June of last year and nearly 20 points since November 2013, when public support for the ACA was at its nadir. A July poll by CBS News after the repeal effort collapsed found that a plurality of Americans favors a bipartisan push in Congress to improve Obamacare.
