Reform law grows more unpopular: survey
Modern Healthcare

The percentage of Americans who have an unfavorable view of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act rose to 50% in January—up from 41% in December—as opposition to the law increased among independents, according to a joint survey from the Kaiser Family Foundation and Harvard School of Public Health. While there are nearly as many people who want to expand the law (28%) or keep it as is (19%) as there are who want to repeal and replace it (23%) or just repeal it altogether (20%), most Americans, or 62%, say they disapprove of a strategy to defund and slow down implementation of the 2010 law, the findings showed.
