Skip to comments.Poll: 12 percent back individual mandate taking effect in 2014
Posted on 07/09/2013 11:16:47 AM PDT by george76
A new survey finds only 12 percent of respondents support implementing ObamaCares individual mandate, which fines consumers who don't acquire health insurance, in 2014 as prescribed by law.
Forty-one percent said consumers shouldn't have to pay a penalty if they dont have insurance
A plurality, 47 percent, said they were not sure if the fines should take effect as scheduled.
The polls findings follow the Obama administration's recent announcement that it will not require larger businesses to offer healthcare coverage until 2015, delaying a key provision in the presidents signature domestic legislation.
As of now, individuals will still be required to carry health insurance starting next year or pay a fine.

But a slick advertising campaign can save it.
There is nothing like taking money out of the pockets of low-information voters to get their attention.
so lets see here; all we heard from the imperial president and his regime when they were trying to force gun control on the American people was “the GOP is going against the will of 90% of the American people” using some concocted poll...
will the GOPe have the nads to stand up and say “obama and his regime are going against 88% of the American people by forcing obamacare on us”????
That ought to knock 'path top citizenship' poll numbers into single digits.
I think you know the answer. Or was that a rhetorical question?
yes and yes.....
It’s a pretty tough sell, even for the low information crowd, to get them to say “yes” to
“would you like the government to tell you that you have to buy health insurance?”
when it was sold as
“free healthcare on demand”.
The Individual Mandate violates the 13th Amendment.
So it must be GOOD that Obama delayed it to 2015?
Ask how many don’t want it at all
He just wants the blowback to come against Hillary or whoever is sitting in that chair after he leaves.
so... it looks like you will still be REQUIRED to get health insurance, or pay a fine, but the employer mandate is gone
(they never wanted it in the first place)
this is the age of obama; since when do rules, laws or the Constitution matter???
Just received our new health care for our employees for the balance of this year into 2014. All rates up about 26%. Agent warns us to plan the next increase in excess of 40%. That 40% on top of the 26% will result in a 75% increase from today’s rates. We are preparing our letter letting the employees know that changes are a coming.
