…Upon closer examination of the poll, there’s a different narrative than the article purports. When asked, “how would you like Congress to handle the law (Obamacare) in its coming session,” respondents overwhelmingly (76 percent) said Congress should move to “repeal” portions of Obamacare. Some 21 percent of those surveyed said that Congress should move to repeal parts of the law as the opportunities arise, “regardless of whether a replacement is ready.” Even more, or 55 percent, of respondents said Congress should repeal parts of the law, “only if replacements can be enacted at the same time…”

New Poll Shows 76 Percent Of Americans Want Obamacare GONE

New Poll Shows that 76 Percent of Americans Want Congress to Repeal Obamacare, but CNN Reported the Story as Americans Showing “Last-Minute Love for Obamacare.”

CNN released the poll Thursday morning in a piece titled, “CNN/ORC Poll Shows Last-Minute Love For Obamacare.” The article states that this is the first time more Americans have favored, not opposed, President Barack Obama’s landmark health care legislation since it passed in 2010. Some 49 percent of Americans say they favor Obamacare, compared to the 47 percent who oppose it, according to the poll.

Even more interesting, considering the CNN headline, is that 37 percent of respondents said they consider Obamacare a failure, outpacing the 23 percent who said the law is overall a success.

President-elect Donald Trump and the Republican-held Congress plan to move forward with “repeal and replace,” immediately after Trump takes office Friday.

300,000 SMALL BUSINESS JOBS LOST DUE TO OBAMACARE

[1/18/17] Obamacare has cost roughly 300,000 small business jobs due to higher health care costs, according to a new report.

The American Action Forum, a center-right policy institute, released findings Wednesday that rising premiums and regulations under the Affordable Care Act have had “dire” consequences for the labor market.

The report found the law has cost $19 billion in lost wages per year and forced 10,000 small businesses establishments to close their doors. The study covered employers with 20 to 99 employees.

“Research from the American Action Forum (AAF) finds regulations from the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are driving up health care premiums and are costing small business employees at least $19 billion in lost wages annually,” the report said. “These figures varied by state, but in 2015 the ACA cost year-round workers $2,095, $2,134, and $2,260 in Ohio, New York, and North Dakota, respectively.”

“Premium increases, a prospect regulators predicted when issuing the first ACA regulations, also significantly diminished the number of business establishments and jobs nationwide,” the report said. “Across the country, small businesses (20-99 workers) lost 295,030 jobs, 10,130 business establishments, and $4.7 billion in total wage earnings. Florida lost 17,950 jobs; Ohio lost 19,000; Pennsylvania lost 15,680; and Texas lost 28,010 jobs due to higher sensitivity to rising health care premiums and the ACA.”
