Usa Today/pew Poll: Health Care Law Faces Difficult Future

AP Health Care Overhaul

Dos a cero is a tradition, like Whacking Day or skipping work after the Super Bowl. 86 – This Mexican team really is an embarrassment. They have completely given up. I know they were going to get ripped in the Mexican media no matter what their level of effort, but this time they deserve it. 88 – Mexico will be fourth or fifth in the group after tonight; it might have to go to a playoff against New Zealand. The 43-hour flight to New Zealand alone is a pretty harsh punishment. 90 + 4 – Penalty kick USA! Miss it, Clint, miss it! And Clint nice! Good stuff, Deuce. Full time: 2-0 USA, and were qualified! The Worst Thing That Can Happen In Sports is postponed for at least four more years! American fans can feel good about our team.

EDT September 16, 2013 Confusion about the Affordable Care Act, often referred to as Obamacare, hasn’t significantly abated, especially among the laws main targets. (Photo: Chip Somodevilla, Getty Images) Story Highlights New poll shows confusion and misinformation still exists about the law Among young people, just 56% realize there’s a mandate to be insured Knowledge about the law is higher in states that are setting up their own exchanges SHARE 7 CONNECT 48 TWEET 1 COMMENTEMAILMORE WASHINGTON — Republican lawmakers have failed in dozens of attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, but a new USA TODAY/Pew Research Center Poll shows just how difficult they have made it for President Obama’s signature legislative achievement to succeed.

Confusion and misinformation about the law haven’t significantly abated, especially among the law’s main targets. Among the 19% polled who are uninsured, nearly four in 10 don’t realize the law requires them to get health insurance next year. Among young people, whose participation is seen as crucial for the exchanges to work, just 56% realize there’s a mandate to be insured or face a fine. And in the states that have refused to participate in the insurance marketplaces defaulting instead to the federal exchange knowledge about the Affordable Care Act and support for it are notably lower than in states that are setting up their own exchanges. MORE: Pew poll “There has been a full-court press from Day One from the opposition to characterize and demonize the plan,” says Thomas Mann of the Brookings Institution, who wrote about the GOP efforts in a 2012 book about Washington he co-authored, It’s Even Worse Than It Looks. “The campaign against the law after it was enacted, the range of steps taken, the effort to delegitimize it it is unprecedented. We’d probably have to go back to the nullification efforts of the Southern states in the pre-Civil War period to find anything of this intensity.” Opponents say the law’s own shortcomings are responsible for its travails. “This program is not ready for prime time,” says Rep.
