The Supreme Court is getting ready to hand down the biggest ObamaCare decision since its original case five years ago. If the plaintiffs in King v. Burwell win, it could upset the entire exchange system and nullify the IRS subsidies for HealthCare.gov enrollees. A new poll taken by FGA finds that even Democrats enrolled in ObamaCare plans want serious changes.
In fact, 82% of split-ticket voters, 79% of Republicans, and 68% of Democrats on the federal exchange support changes to ObamaCare that help everyone, not just those on the federal health care exchange.Read More
Recently, the Foundation for Government Accountability released a poll which asked ObamaCare enrollees in the 34 states that don’t have a state exchange about their experiences with the health care law.
How did they respond?
Voters don’t want to pay for more ObamaCare.
When asked, “Would you be more or less likely to support setting up statefunded ObamaCare exchanges if you knew that state taxpayers would have to pay for the cost of operating the exchanges?”, 60% responded that they were less likely to support.
Voters don’t want more ObamaCare business mandates.
When asked, “Would you be more or less likely to support setting up state funded ObamaCare exchanges if you knew that creating exchanges could cause 375,000 businesses and 86 million employees to be subject to ObamaCare’s employer mandate?”, 57% responded that they would be less likely to support setting up a state exchange.Read More
The Supreme Court will issue a ruling in the landmark King v. Burwell case in the next several months and depending upon where the court lands, it could create drastic problems for the federal ObamaCare exchange.
As the FGA’s own Josh Archambault has explained before, if the Supreme Court justices rule that subsides given to the federal exchange enrollees where “illegal,” and that “the IRS should never have given them out” in the first place, that means the federal subsidies would disappear.
That could have a huge impact in the 34 states that do not have their own exchange.
A new poll by the Foundation for Government Accountability finds that voters in those states that rely on the federal health care exchange think that instead of setting up their own state exchange, Congress needs to clean up the ObamaCare mess they created.Read More
Earlier today, FGA Action released the results of eight different polls focusing on Medicaid expansion in key Republican held Montana House districts. According to the press release, a majority of the voters in these districts were concerned with the overall budget impact expanding Medicaid would on their state. From the release:
A majority of the voters polled expressed concern that expanding Medicaid in Montana could endanger state funding to education, public safety, and other health care programs. In House District 93, for example, 78 percent of all voters said these potential cuts to state priorities make them less likely to support Medicaid expansion.
Montana is one of several states where hospital lobbyists have recently increased their pressure on lawmakers to expand Medicaid. They’re hoping to convince Republicans that the Medicaid money from the federal government is too good of a deal to pass up. But the polling suggests that legislators who choose to take the expansion funds could face an uphill battle come election time.
The full pro-ObamaCare lobby is targeting the Montana legislature to expand Medicaid. FGA Action is making sure the voice of the voter is heard. They’re sending a very clear message that they don’t want Montana to become another ObamaCare state, and they will take action at the ballot box if their legislators side against them,” FGA Action CEO Tarren Bragdon said.
In fact, in House District 71, currently represented by Ray Shaw, an astounding 85 percent of those polled said they would be less likely to re-elect their legislator if they voted to to expand Medicaid under ObamaCare. FGA Action has made each individual poll available by district: HD7, HD20, HD23, HD27, HD39, HD40, HD71, HD93.Read More

Poll: Arkansas Voters Support Winding Down the ObamaCare ‘Private Option’ Disaster
Voters support winding down ObamaCare expansion
The recent election results in Arkansas have made one thing clear: taxpayers want nothing to do with President Obama’s health care takeover. Now, in a new poll released today, an overwhelming majority of Arkansans want lawmakers to wind down the ObamaCare expansion in a thoughtful way that protects patients and taxpayers.
The poll, published today by the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA), surveyed 650 Arkansans who voted in the November 4th general election. When asked how to roll back the ObamaCare Private Option, 83% of those polled said they support freezing enrollment in the program; a staggering 57% support freezing enrollment and implementing a definite end date for the program.
The Private Option – which gives taxpayer-funded welfare to able-bodied, childless adults – has failed to deliver on the promises its cheerleaders have made. It has prioritized able-bodied adults over the truly needy in the Medicaid program and has been over budget every single month since it launched in January, putting Arkansas taxpayers at risk of owing millions in paybacks to Washington. Taxpayers are ready to roll back the disaster before things get even worse.Read More
