Poll: Majority Of Voters Favor Repeal Of Healthcare Bill


Poll: Majority Of Voters Favor Repeal Of Healthcare BillAlthough months have gone by since healthcare reform legislation was signed into law by President Obama the debate still rages on as to whether the bill should have been passed in the first place.

In fact, this week’s Rasmussen Reports poll found that 58 percent of voters believe the law should be repealed, marking a two-point increase from the last time the survey was conducted. In contrast, only 37 percent of voters oppose such a reversal.

Furthermore, a total of 44 percent of those surveyed feel that repealing the law would be good for the economy, while only 28 percent believe it would be detrimental.

However, while a growing number of people support the idea of reversing the law, a declining percentage of Americans believe a repeal is likely.

"The talk about repealing healthcare just won’t go anyplace," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network. "It’s been good, and our country is better for having passed this legislation."

The poll also found that a vast majority of voters think that less government regulation and more competition are key to turning around the economy and promoting job creation.
