Obamacare Has Hurt More Than Helped

The latest Gallup survey is in, and people are souring even more on Obamacare. Consistently, more Americans disapprove of Obamacare than approve of it.

For people directly affected by the law so far, Obamacare is particularly unpopular. Over a quarter of the American people—27 percent—say that Obamacare has hurt them and their family, while only 16 percent say that the health care law has helped them.

This law has already cost Americans too much, including billions on the failed website alone, yet only a small fraction of Americans have seen any positive benefit.

When big government micromanages health care, just about everyone loses. It’s long past time we cut our losses on this failed law and replace it with a patient-centered, free-market alternative.
