Support For ObamaCare Repeal and Replace Dwindling

An ABC News poll now shows only 37 percent of those polled support a repeal and replace strategy for ObamaCare.  As the current poll shows, more Americans would prefer fixing the existing ACA than to tear it down and start over.  61% favor an effort to keep and improve ObamaCare.  79% favor trying to make it work versus 13% for trying to make it fail.

Just 37 percent of Americans in the national survey say Obamacare should be repealed and replaced; 61 percent say it should be kept and fixed instead. Even more broadly, the public by 79-13 percent says Trump should seek to make the current law work as well as possible, not to make it fail as soon as possible, a strategy he’s suggested.
These lopsidedly pro-Obamacare views are far different from the results of an ABC/Post poll in mid-January asking if Americans supported or opposed repealing Obamacare, 46-47 percent. That question did not offer “keeping and improving” it as an alternative -- and it was asked before the contours of the first failed effort to repeal the law were known

Word is that the GOP is preparing to roll out a "new" program to replace ObamaCare.  Stay tuned for updates.

“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.”

Kaiser Foundation Interactive Subsidy Map (TrumpCare vs. ObamaCare)

An interactive subsidy map provided by Kaiser Foundation allows you to see the impact of tax credit subsidy (2020) versus income-based subsidy (current).  Sorted by county in all 50 states.  Those above 400% federal poverty level would do much better, those below, depends on county and income.  Most below 200% would do much worse.  

Subsidies under ACA are based primarily on income.  Tax Credits would be based primarily on age.
