60% Expect Costs To Rise Under Federal Health Care Law

Monday, June 10, 2013

Most voters continue to view President Obama’s national health care law unfavorably. Two-out-of-three expect it to increase the federal budget deficit, six-out-of-10 expect it to increase health care costs and half expect it to hurt the quality of care.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 39% of Likely U.S. Voters hold at least a somewhat favorable opinion of the health care law, while 53% view it unfavorably. This includes 16% with a Very Favorable opinion and 38% with a Very Unfavorable one. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
