GOP tone-deafness: Americans rank health care as ‘most important issue’ as party fails to deliver Obamacare repeal

Historically, Obamacare has never been popular with a majority of Americans

(National SentinelHealthcare Uninformed: As the GOP establishment in the Senate failed in its latest attempt to unravel a law that is destroying the American healthcare industry as we know it, Americans for the first time this year have ranked “health care” as the issue most important to them.

Talk about tone-deaf.

As reported by the Washington Examiner:

Healthcare and the economy were seen as top priorities for Congress by 24 percent of those polled in a Sept. 22-24 survey by Morning Consult/Politico.

Healthcare has been a leading focus for the Trump administration since January, but congressional Republicans made another unsuccessful attempt to reform Obamacare this week.

Despite the setback, 40 percent of voters still want lawmakers to undo former President Barack Obama’s healthcare law, while 52 percent disagree.

Regarding the 52 percent, we’re not sure where the figure comes from; in the four questions where “Obamacare” is mentioned, none of the “opposed” or “somewhat opposed” figures add up to 52 percent.

Nevertheless, the fact that Americans now consider “health care” to be a top issue is important in and of itself. And historically, Obamacare has never been popular with a majority.
