Americans Oppose Withholding ObamaCare Funding

According to latest poll

|

WASHINGTON—While Americans remain deeply divided over President Obama's healthcare law, a clear majority opposes withholding funding to implement the 2010 law, a new national survey indicates.

Fifty-seven percent of Americans say they disapprove of cutting off funding for the Affordable Care Act, while just 36% say they would approve such a move, according to the most recent poll from the nonprofit Kaiser Family Foundation.

Making suspension of the healthcare law a condition for future funding of the federal government has emerged this summer as a favored strategy by many Republicans looking for ways to derail final implementation of the law.
