Despite Obama’s insistence his administration should not “apologize for” it nor “be defensive about it,” the number of Americans dissatisfied with Obamacare continues to grow according to an article published by Bloomberg this week. Fifty-eight percent of survey respondents say they’re “unhappy with Obama’s handling of the health-care issue,” a 4% increase from a March poll while 53% reported overall dissatisfaction with the law. The main concerns among Americans remain threats of rising costs and uneasiness over mandated care.
“You shouldn’t make it mandatory that everyone have health care because it infringes on individual rights,” said Laura Jackson, 57, an independent voter and high school special education teacher in Fort Worth, Texas. “I don’t think it is going to hold down costs, and I suspect it will increase costs.”
