Majority says Obamacare has helped people

Posted By on Thu, Jul 24, 2014 at 9:16 AM

Here's a CNN poll to add to the Republican wastebasket of facts:

A majority of Americans think they or others are better off because of Obamacare. 44 percent think it hasn't helped anyone. Anyone! Those 200,000 people with new and subsidized coverage in Arkansas? Not helped. At all.

Despite a majority belief in positive benefits, a majority still disapprove of the law — 40 approve to 59 disapprove.

BUT NOTE:

Of the 59 percent disapproving, 17 percent of those disapprove "because the law is not liberal enough."

I think you can interpret those numbers into clear majority approval for an expanded government role in health insurance. Add that to  the Republican fact wastebasket, too.
