News Update: The Supreme Court is expected to issue a ruling on Obamacare this week. 

 

RESURGENT REPUBLIC:

It's about the cost of health care, stupid. Voters' top priority for health care reform is to reduce out-of-control costs.

 

Strong majorities of Independents expect the health care reform law to increase their premiums, health care costs, the federal decit, and taxes, while more believe it will hurt rather than help

the quality of care.

 

Instead of making health care more a-ordable, a majority of Independents say their own health care costs have gone up since ObamaCare became law.

 

Most Americans believe the health care law is a drag on the economy.

 

Most Americans do not believe they will personally benefit from ObamaCare.

 

Voters are wary of more government involvement as the basis of health care reform. 

 

Since becoming law, the intensity favors those who strongly oppose the health care reform law instead of those who favor the law.

Rather than spending the better part of his first two years trying to pass health care reform, Independents believe President Obama should have done more to focus on the economy.

 

The health care reform debate caused many voters to view President Obama as "another politician."
