New Poll Shows 52 Percent Of Floridians Oppose ObamaCare
Two years ago, liberal U.S. Senator Bill Nelson made President Barack Obama’s $1.76 trillion healthcare proposal the law of the land and now a new poll reveals that a majority of Floridians oppose this job-killing law.
The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reports that ObamaCare will cut $500 billion from Medicare, raise taxes by over $500 billion and force every American to purchase health insurance.
A new poll reveals that 52 percent of Floridians oppose the healthcare overhaul and most voters believe the law will make the healthcare system worse.
As the Tampa Bay Times reports:
“Only 43 percent of voters statewide support the Affordable Care Act and 52 percent oppose it, with 5 percent undecided. … 50 percent want to see Republicans follow through on their vow to repeal the law, with 43 percent saying it should remain. In perhaps the most worrisome sign for Obama and Democrats, only 39 percent of voters 65 years or older support the law. Seniors make up about 30 percent of the overall state’s electorate.” (Alex Leary, Poll: Most Floridians disapprove of federal healthcare law, half want it repealed, Tampa Bay Times, 7/12/12)
Notably, the Wall Street Journal has written that ObamaCare is the largest tax increase in history on the middle class.
“Given that liberal Democrat Bill Nelson’s healthcare law raids $550 billion from Medicare and has been deemed the largest tax increase ever on the middle class, it’s hardly surprising a majority of Floridians oppose this law,” said National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) spokesman Jahan Wilcox.
