From NBC News:
most Americans say they don't have a good grasp of what the law entails. Thirty-four percent say they don’t understand the law very well, and another 35 percent say they understand it only “some.”
Rep. Renee Ellmers is still beating the drum of how "Obamacare" will hurt US' economy and health system. She said on Twitter: "Americans by 45-23% say #Obamacare will have negative rather than positive impact on healthcare system." This is true.
However, it is obvious to anyone who has followed the polls that folks are afraid of the unknown, and they consider this reform as an unknown. Instead of trying to remedy that problem, Ellmers and her co-horts in the Republican US House are trying to create havoc among the groups trying to educate the public.
The NBC/WSJ poll results indicate 30 percent understand [the ACA] either "very well" or "pretty well."
As it turns out, that 30 percent has more positive opinions about the health-care law (42 percent good idea, 45 percent bad idea), versus the 34 percent who don't understand it very well (17 percent good idea, 44 percent bad idea).
