Majority of Americans support ObamaCare

It is an editorially independent program of the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation.

Around 4 in 5 said they want the Trump administration to take actions that help Obama's law function properly, rather than trying to undermine it.

Paul, R-Bowling Green, said Trump directed his anger at the wrong person when he went after McConnell for failing to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, a pledge McConnell and Republicans have made since 2010.

The rally was organized to protest the college town's decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Video of people marching with the Red Wings logo appeared on social media Saturday morning.

The president has been smarting from the Senate's failure to pass an overhaul of the Affordable Care Act, a long-standing priority for the GOP and a marquee campaign promise from Trump a year ago.

The Democrats' national bus tour is motoring through Iowa, targeting vulnerable House Republicans who voted to repeal Obamacare.

Trump is, very likely, aware of three things when it comes to the Republican Party. "Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!". If Trump continues the sabotage, Democrats take back the Senate and the White House in 2020. Trump's recent attacks on McConnell, therefore, are calculated to distance himself from the senator, should the latter fail to get new health care legislation to the president's desk. Citing the "reality of the complexity of legislating" and the president's inexperience in government, McConnell said that he found criticism of the lack of progress "extremely irritating".

This month's survey also probes the public's views about the Affordable Care Act's insurance marketplaces, which allow Americans who don't get insurance through their employer to shop for and purchase insurance, with tax credits available to low- and moderate-income customers.

Going forward, most respondents said they wanted Trump and the Republicans to abandon their attempts to repeal ObamaCare and instead focus on shoring up the healthcare markets and stabilizing the law. Most of those who say it is a good thing say they do not want the law repealed at all (34% of the public overall), while fewer (23% of the public overall) say it is because they had concerns with the specific bill being debated.
