Whatever the law’s successes, Americans still seem to mostly hate it. At least, they say they hate it, even though they like what it does.
Surveys show that Americans are pretty keen on almost all of Obamacare’s specific provisions, such as guaranteeing coverage for people with preexisting conditions, the Medicaid expansion, no out-of-pocket costs for preventive care, and letting children stay on their parents’ health plans until age 26.
In other words, Obamacare has a branding issue. But given how many court and legislative challenges the law has survived, I’d say that even on this metric, our patient’s prognosis still looks good.
