This weekend, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) talked about a “grassroots tsunami” that could rise up and stop the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. A new poll from Kaiser Family Foundation the shows that if there is a tsunami, it’s one in support of going forward with the law.
Only 36 percent approve of Cruz’s plan to cut off funding while 57 percent oppose the plot. Of that 57 percent, 69 percent agreed with the statement “using the budget process to stop a law is not the way our government should work.”
The support for continuing to implement Obamacare is far greater than the 37 percent of Americans who approve of the law.
Misinformation continues to be the biggest obstacle, with 44 percent of respondents still unsure if the Affordable Care Act is law.
