Anyone TRYING to Understand Health Care Reform?

Health Care Reform, the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare, or ORomneyCare, or whatever positive or negative spin you put on it, is one of those issues which leaves people with their eyes glazing over. Which is one of the things that is amazing about this poll, which is part of an update on health care reform by Holmes Murphey & Associates done for The Kaiser Family Foundation.

It appears that the more people know about it, the more they like it - or dislike it - until they are asked about various components of the plan independently. Then they like it - or not - if they think its going to raise their taxes. If its going to raise their taxes then they like it - or not - if they see that more uninsured are going to have health care. 

 Americans, according to the poll, have barely know about the lawsuits brought by states to determine the constitutionality of the legislation. Those who do, apparently don't know the status of the legislation. There are those who don't think that it has been brought to the Supreme Court (actually the Obama Administration has asked the Supreme Court for a ruling on its constitutionality).

So take a look at this poll. It is one of the clearest and most objective cases for the law and of its current status. It may help keep your eyes from glazing over when its brought up again next time...and believe me it will be!
