Obamacare Survey shows public support

In a March 2014 survey the Kaiser Foundation found that almost half of those surveyed (49%) said they wanted Congress to “keep the law in place and work to improve it” and another 10% said Congress should simply leave the law as is.

By contrast, 18% wanted the law repealed outright while 11% wanted it replaced with a Republican alternative.

The survey also found that major provisions of the law are quite popular including subsidies to help people buy insurance, expansion of Medicaid, the guarantee that people can’t be denied coverage because of pre-existing medical problems and the rule eliminating out-of-pocket costs for preventive care. But 40% to 50% of Americans do not know that the law includes each of those provisions.

About a third of the uninsured were not aware that the law includes subsidies that could help them buy insurance.
